Sheading of Glenfaba

Glenfaba (Manx: Glion Faba) is one of six sheadings in the Isle of Man. It lies on the west of the island and consists of the parishes of German and Patrick. Historically, Glenfaba also included the parish of Marown toward the centre of the island. Geographically the area also includes the town of Peel which is administered separately. The only significant settlement in the sheading is St John's, where the Tynwald ceremony takes place.

Glenfaba is also a House of Keys constituency, electing one MHK.
