Event description
A celebration and contemplation of Samhain, the role it held for our ancestors, and the role it holds for us today.

About this Event

This programmes combines mental wellbeing, outdoor healing journeys and the rich teachings found in our ancient heritage, sites and mythology.

Join us as we delve into the healing riches found in the sacred archetypes of the land and Irish mythology, and gain a deeper awareness of the understanding that the ancients held for human behaviour, wellbeing and relationship with nature and Mother Earth.

As we understand these teachings, we can integrate them into our lives, as we face into the darker months ahead with the skills and supports needed to maintain a sense of wellbeing.

Rath Croghan, Crúachan Aí, is the ancient Royal Site of Connacht. It is said to have been home to Queen Medb and is steeped in Irish Mythology and History. A site to be revered and respected indeed, Oweynagat Cave is also located on site. It is said that the Morrigan takes rest there and keeps guard over the portal between the human world and the otherworld. This site is said to mark the origins of Samhain.

We will be accompanied by one of the sites guides for part of this journey, as we aim to gain an holistic understanding of the traditions of Samhain, and the importance both Medb and the Morrigan held for the ancient Irish.

Access to the exhibition at the visitor centre is also included.
