Paganism…with Common Sense

Imram Brian Meic Ferbail

One of the Imramma, or ‘Voyage’ stories, dating to possibly the 8th century. I can only find a small portion of the text in Irish to translate but it is an interesting section and offers insight into how far back the concept existed that to live on one of the Otherworldly islands meant to be […]

The Morrigan and Morgen le Fay

One source of much confusion is the connection – or lack thereof – between the Irish goddess the Morrigan and the Welsh Arthurian figure Morgen le Fay*.
