Hey all,

I was wondering if anyone has ever sourced any full and complete version of Leabhar Gabhala Eireann (or Lebor gabala erenn or book of invasions)? Author, publisher etc

Its easy enough to pick up a copy of nearly all the other Irish tales but this one seems eternally ellusive. I know it is collected in five volumes by the Irish text society but at around 70 euros a pop it aint that afordable. The UCC website also does an online version but theres nothing like having a propper book in your hands.

cheers

Belfast English [07 Mar 2011|06:51pm]

wildbluefaerie
I'm an undergraduate student of Linguistics at McGill University and I am conducting a study on the properties of Belfast English. I am looking for people from Belfast to participate in my study by filling out a short online survey. The survey includes demographic information (kept completely anonymous) and questions about rhymes, words, etc. It should take only about 10 minutes. Thank you in advance! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Cú Chulainn Movie [20 Sep 2010|12:44pm]

sensibleken
Finally a movie is being made about Cú Chulainn. Could go either way I think. Its being written by the guy from the Horslips who wrote loads of songs about it so it could be ok.

Im a bit nervous its going to be rubbish though.

Hey fellow Celtic lovers,

I don't know about you, but I love everything Irish, including the wonderful Irish accent! I am an undergraduate linguistics student at McGill University, and I'm looking for participants for a study on Irish English. So if you're Irish (or know anyone Irish) check it out! It only takes a few minutes to fill out and you can have fun laughing at my bad poetry! The only requirement is that you grew up in (or are growing up!) in Ireland. Thanks for your help!!

The Children of Llyr [20 Feb 2010|12:05pm]

godwinsdottir

The Swans, they sang this morning—
Their voices loud as bells.

Their feathers catching sunlight
As each of them fell
Down.
And in their frantic rushes
Of white and silver rain,
I could have sworn by gods above
That I heard her name;
And later by the waterside
In the silence of the lake,
I thought I heard her quiet voice
Singing of that
Ache.

These are the cattle of the Táin Bó Cúailnge.
If they succeed in doing this not only will the cattle be huge (remember the size of the bull in the myth?) but shaggy with peculiarly long and distinctive horns.

Hello everyone, please read this, and please pray with me to overcome this evil in America... [25 Sep 2009|10:04pm]
owlmuffin

this is my photo of my dolly... :)

Hi guys and girls, as you must already take for granted (which is good!) is our freedom to love. Right now our rights are being stolen away, little by little, and our lifestyles are under the attack. Please read this and use your young and energetic minds to do and think of ways to combat this evil so that we can all enjoy what we love.

I got his e-mail, it's extremely important! If you live on this planet Earth, then you MUST make yourself aware of this growing pandemic! Please read all the way through this before you judge anyone. I left off the last name of the person who wrote this email so he won't be bombarded with hate mail, everything else is copied and pasted exactly how it is in the e-mail I got.

For the livejournal community goers, I realise this might be seen as spam, but I assure you, it’s not. This is not a chain mail or spam or hate mail, this is an e-mail I got personally from an odler gentleman who is very wise and very brave. I realise it might get deleted, which is exeedingly deplorable, scince no one will be exempt from the pervasive evil from the US and other nations, and everyone needs to know. This is one of the only ways I can get as many people’s attention as possible, so please don’t delete this, please read it, research it, and don’t scoff just becuase it’s shocking. I would not being doing this if I didn’t care about each and every person in this community!

It's very important that you copy and paste this into word program and print it out. Share this information with everyone you know and don't worry about looking foolish, the only thing you are doing is offering them a chance to get some information about the government.

God or Goddess Bless. (or anything else you believe in, because as a human being you have the right to believe in whatever you want).

----------------
My wife, Jackie, says she concurs with everything I say in this e-mail . . .

Foreign troops are now on U.S. soil -- Jackie and I already encountered one of their arrogant minions Sunday in Southern Oregon. He was on a BMW motorcycle with a small ISAF logo on the windshield; and we later saw a Dutch Army van headed south on Interstate 5 the same day.

While this may come as a great SURPRISE to some of you: We are about to go under martial law -- probably next month. I hope and PRAY that I'm wrong, but I don't think I am. All the evidence around us points to it -- the economy has collapsed, the dollar is at zero and about to be discarded, there is a swine flu fear-mongering hoax gaining momentum (but the swine flu "vaccine" is very real, and VERY DEADLY), almost daily, we are being HEAVILY chemtrailed here in the Rogue Valley of Southern Oregon with barium and aluminum and other toxins which are binary catalysts to weaken our immune systems, to be triggered by the toxic swine flu "vaccine." I would strongly advise you to take lots of Vitamin D-3 to prepare for the coming onslaught (which Jackie and I have been doing for more than a year along with natural sunlight) -- and there are foreign troops RIGHT NOW on our soil!

Until the Internet is shutdown (which will also happen very soon to keep us Americans from communicating amongst ourselves) I STRONGLY urge everyone to listen DAILY now to Alex Jones' Internet radio show -- http://www.gcnlive.com/mediaPlayers/odPlayer.php?program=alexJones -- ESPECIALLY TODAY, Tuesday, September 22, 2009 (sorry it's so late in the day getting this written and sent) -- as the pathological killers of the new world order are exponentially ramping-up for martial law and forced vaccination (and gun-grabbing) with NO due process of law, whatsoever -- ALL as our Constitutional rights are now termite-ridden. They mean business, and so should you . . . IF you don't want to be blind-sided. It is up to you to pay heed and educate yourselves NOW, because . . . it is imminent!

READ THIS WELL -- it may be hard to even BELIEVE for some of you -- but, this is what's happening NOW: Brainwashed "law-enforcement" personnel on goon "God-trips," and naive, uninformed military recruits (against the Constitutional Posse Commitatus law) with police dogs and helicopters are already in some of our cities with their dogs barking at passers-by -- AND: 279,000 foreign troops are NOW on U.S. soil (many of whom you can spot on the Interstate Highway system riding BMW motorcycles). Prepare now.

Jackie and I actually had a brief encounter Sunday, while camping up in the mountains, with one of those foreign military assholes on a red BMW motorcycle (a very rare purchase in the USA, as some of you might know) with a small, barely-discernable logo sticker that said ISAF on its small windshield {and when Jackie saw the ending-letter "F" on his sticker, she asked, "What fire department are you with?" -- and he side-stepped that question and off-handedly tried to stutter out an answer, finally deciding upon: "It's just a motorcycle club . . . " Jackie and I already knew about the BMW motorcycle troops from callers in other parts of the U.S. to the Alex Jones Internet radio show.

This motorcyclist SAID he was a Canadian (he might have been), and he was DEFINITELY a military "type" -- and, as a former Naval Aviator, I KNOW 'em, I can spot 'em . . . I WAS military. He also appeared to be working in conjunction with the Jackson County Sheriff's Office who was cruising around us simultaneously, watching . . . This guy was "phishing," and pushy, and he kept trying to get us talking about our "politics," but we just clammed-up, and he finally saw he was getting nowhere with us and packed up and left] -- and, THEN, later: Jackie and I even saw a Dutch Army van on I-5 heading south between Medford and Ashland, the very same day, Sunday). How did we know it was Dutch Army? Well . . . that's what the big sign on it said (duh!) in blue U.N. colors. They are "conditioning" us and softening us up to acquiesce to them . . . pretty blatant of them, though, eh? It's all part of their initial "psy-op" against us.

BTW: for those of you who don't know what ISAF stands for (the logo on the troops' BMW motorcycles), that's: International Security Assistance Force -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Security_Assistance_Force -- and that's ALSO: United Nations and NATO foreign troops, FOLKS -- (I apologize for using Wikipedia as a source, as it would've been rejected by my M.B.A. professors, but it's a pretty comprehensive explanation, nevertheless).

Also:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8UTRVlxRLE Dutch army! ( ISAF ) This is a youtube link abut the Dutch Army in America.


The ISAF was originally set up in 2001 by the united nations security council (I flat REFUSE to capitalize it) to be in Afghanistan, but, my theory is, they've been diverted to the USA to help subjugate US -- We The People of the United States of America. Otherwise, WHY else would the U.S. commander in Afghanistan be "calling" for more U.S. troops to be sent to Afghanistan??? (Hint: so our own troops won't be here to protect US. As soon as that last contingent of good ol' U.S. military forces leaves our shores, the ISAF dogs will be unleashed on US!)

Americans started calling-in from different parts of the country a couple of weeks ago to the Alex Jones Internet radio show about ALSO encountering these foreigners riding around on BMW motorcycles, and now they're here in Southern Oregon! Do you think they're just Europeans on vacation? Go figure some more . . .

My friends and family: this is all part of a diabolical plan (that I realize is too-difficult for many of you to get your genteel, civilized minds around [believe me, I don't want to absorb it, either!], because it's just TOO DIABOLICAL to accept, and many of you will refuse to even read any further, I know) to enforce their Luciferian scheme of mass murdering or putting the U.S. citizenry in concentration camps (FEMA CAMPS!) to turn the USA over to the United Nations and its troops (German army, too -- former East German soldiers) -- troops who will have NO QUALMS about firing on U.S. citizens when our OWN troops wouldn't have the stomach for it -- even if unlawfully ordered to do so -- while our OWN loyal U.S. troops (the ones who have HONORED their Constitutional oaths) have been sent to Iraq and Afghanistan (to fight for who knows what: oil and the opium trade?) -- they will NOT be brought home to defend us, the American people. Why do you think most of good troops are overseas right now??? This was a promise that Henry Kissenger made to the Council on Foreign Relations (I'm sorry I can't find the link to that right now, 'cause I'm in a hurry to get this info out to you): that the U.S. would be turned over to the U.N. by September (he's slightly behind schedule).

Alex Jones (I'm NOT apologizing for being repetitive with the link to his daily Internet radio program) -- http://www.gcnlive.com/mediaPlayers/odPlayer.php?program=alexJones -- is interviewing doctors right now, TODAY, who are strongly advising, in no uncertain terms, NOT to take ANY kind of vaccinations (including Gardasil, which is killing SCORES of young women already) -- and that goes for your kids and our/MY grandchildren, too (but only IF you want them [and yourselves, as well] healthy and whole-hide)! It is up to you as to how cavalier and "kewl" you wish to be about all this. Ignore it if you want . . . and forever regret it. If you take the swine flu shot, you're doomed.

Tell ALL your friends and family (brain-dead, or not!) to WAKE UP, too! While some of them may mock you (just as some of you CLOSEST to ME have derided ME [I don't have to name names: you know who you are] and laugh at you, they will NOT learn the truth about what's REALLY going on in the world and our country if they keep watching and/or listening to sports and so-called "news" on TV and radio (no matter which channel or frequency it may be -- it's ALL corporate controlled by the power-elite)!

I don't care WHAT you think of ME -- and yet, I think a lot of all of YOU! That's why you're getting this e-mail.

Please do not mis-interpret this as yet another ho-hum, Chicken Little, "The Sky Is Falling" message from Max. AMERICA IS FALLING! If you are receiving this e-mail, it's because I care about you. Even if you've been deleting all my e-mails up until now, this is one you should definitely heed and save . . . OR, just keep your heads buried in the sand -- it's up to you.

PLEASE: Shortcut the following link on your desktop and don't lose it. Again, I am very serious! I don't want any of you, my wonderful friends, to be blindsided by the pure HELL that's being unleashed on us -- even as you're reading this. Here's the link to listen to what's REALLY going on in the world at ANY TIME OF THE DAY OR NIGHT (as long as it lasts) -- it plays in a continuous loop for 24 hours, until 9 a.m. Pacific/11 a.m. Central, at which time he starts the new program and interviews for the day: http://www.gcnlive.com/mediaPlayers/odPlayer.php?program=alexJones

Also, go to Dr. Len Horowitz's website: www.fluscam.com -- and ALWAYS, but ALWAYS, check the articles that keep changing (sometimes, hourly) on Alex Jones' web sites of: www.infowars.com and www.prisonplanet.com -- unlike what is on the mainstream media network of lies, none of it is based on mere opinion and/or coverup: it is ALL based upon the facts (harsh as those facts are). This is REALITY, I'm so sorry to say.

Sincerely,

Max

I have suspicions that Lugh may be calling to me. Any suggestions, aside from/in addition to meditation and divination in confirming said suspicions (such as offerings, etc.)?

Thanks much.

Glendruid [01 Apr 2009|05:18pm]

sensibleken

Hi all. new here so i thought id share one of my recent trips to a local dolmen and share some of the mythology surrounding these

Also known as brennanstown dolmen. but glendruid sounds way cooler. last week was the vernal equinox which is if your into that type of thing is heralded in at Loughcrew. where the sun rises and shines down the passage of the alligned tomb and illuminates the carved stone at the back of the chamber. i was torn between going to this for sunrise and going for a few pints, since i ended up getting a wee bit sloshed and it involved getting up at 3am the plan was abandoned. and thank fuck because its cloudy and i wouldnt have seen feck all.

instead i went to glendruid

DPP_0051 by you.
down the back of some very posh houses sits a huge dolmen in a small glen by a stream. i swear the people that built these were all poets.

Hello all,
I'm going to Ireland for a week in April and staying in Limerick. I'm really excited but don't know anything about Ireland. Has anyone ever been there or lives there that can suggest some places to go/see? (particularly sights regarding Paganism, or anything cool!)
thank you!

Celtic Animal Series [16 Aug 2008|07:44pm]

_graywolf_
By teaming up with the wonderful PeterStone company we've finally been able to launch my Celtic Animals range, as I've always felt that the animal side of Celtic jewellery was under-appreciated, or lacking a tiny bit of myth and meaning.

Now taking orders in advance for this Mythical line, we've started the run with 8 designs; seal, dog, falcon, wolf, dragonfly, wild boar, salmon and snake. They have a matted/roughed up silver background, making them look more stone-like. The animals are raised from the rough base and are gold. The designs are based on a modern-day blend of Pictish and late Celtic styling.

I'll try to cover a animal or two per week in my journal with a small bit of info about this animal, and what it can mean to you or yours.

This week, we're starting off with the Seal;Collapse )

Really quick questions;

An Mhor Rioghain is also identified as "the Washer at the Ford." Is this Ford a specific place? Does it correlate to a map-able place in physical Ireland?

(Or, in leiu of answering, feel free to provide me with links. If it's discussed in the Epstein thesis, let me know as well; I have downloaded that resource, but have had trouble "getting into" its necessarily scholarly presentation :/)

Thanks much.
