Flaitheas is the Irish word for Sovereignty.   Flaithiúil is the Irish word for generosity. They share a common root both within the word & within the thought. Like much of Irish spirituality it is a twisty, knotwork like way of thinking. In accepting our sovereignty we are encouraged to make good our promises to the goddess & embrace the responsibility to the land and those who share it with us.


In part the Celtic way of viewing sovereignty is due to the belief that…


The Loathly Lady

I have been thinking lately about the Loathly Lady stories.  They all have in common the hideous woman who demands a kiss or marriage.

In the The Adventures of the Sons of Eochaid Mugmedon, Niall of the Nine Hostages proves his right to be Ard Rí by kissing an ugly woman at a ford whom his brothers have refused. This reprises the earlier tales of previous high kings Lugaid Loígde and Conn of the Hundred Battles…


Soundboards of Truth

Music has long been a major source of communication.  Through both instrumental music & song we protest, we scream in anger. Music allows us to speak to each other even when we have no common tongue.


We understand that people of varying times & places are linked best when we hear their music. We recognize the voice of protest   Although Woody Guthrie’s This Land is Your Land is often used as pro-American it is the voice of protest:

The End of the World

Posted on May 27, 2013 at 3:11pm 0 Comments

In 366 Celt Carl McColman writes “The Celts are the people of the end of the world , , , Today that sense of mystery has been lost by the knowledge of global geography – a traveler leaving the British Isles heading west arrives not at T’r na nÓg but rather comes to Boston or New York.”  In the spiritual sense, however, we are able to stand on the shore looking west with nothing on the horizon but water and reach out to T’r na nÓg. We reach out to those places at the end of the known…

They have already been removed from the site as a scammer. Unforunately when they send you a message here, if you have your email settings set to receive notifications in your inbox, a copy gets send their as well. It's unfortunate but there is no way to recognize/catch them until after they have sent out some mails/commets. We usually get them within hours of them posting to people.

Never respond to someone asking you to email them off-site.

Thanks so much for letting us know, it's because of members bringing these people to our attention that we can remove them so quickly!

All the best,
