the dark side fights for the right to burn our sacred symbols and our sacred sites...
Wondering how much money and good name they lost from being exposed...
But "it is not defamation when it is the truth", fools.
The wiccan burning cult, the Isis witches and the obodites fight back with a solicitors letter...
But "it is not defamation when it is the truth", fools.
They claim that they have good names and imply that they might loose money because I wrote a report exposing what they did (on Halloween 2018) to Tlachtga, the temple of our Earth Energy Goddess. You can see my report dated 09/04/2019 half way down the home page as a pdf and doc at https://www.celticdruidtemple.com/ if you wish.
A case is being prepared by me for consideration to present to the ICC on state funded cultural misappropriation, displacement of indigenous pilgrimage, burning of our sacred symbols and the burning of our ancient temples by David Gilroy and the wiccan burning cult members as named in Steen O'Reilly's letter to me.
The wiccan burning cult includes those named on the solicitors letter - these people are members of the Order of Bards Ovates and Druids, a freemasonic fake druid group based in England, the Temple of Isis, a freemasonic group of witches and fake druids based in Wexford and the disconnected wiccans and theatricals who play at woo woo.
Deliberate deforestation of the Amazon
We must identify the heads of the financial corporations who profit from the deliberate deforestation of the Amazon. Their front men are the puppet politicians who facilitate them but the unrestrained greed of those who make big profits from exporting and importing beef, poultry, and soy from Brazil are the true cause of these huge forest fires. It is inappropriate for media opinion to blame the poor farmers or poor loggers as they only seek day to day survival. It is the commercial profit policies of the export / import food chain that is the true problem and if left unregulated by global awareness of the true ecological impact of their greed; their policies will continue until no forest remains and there is no profit left to be extracted.
Suspend international food trade
China, the European Union, and the United States import much of their beef, poultry, and soy from Brazil. They must suspend their international food trade policies with Brazil. The Mercursor bilateral trade talks which seek to force beef from Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay onto supermarket and fast food outlets in Ireland and Europe must be suspended immediately. The entire world must urgently review the true ecological / environmental impact of such trade. Ireland does not need beef from Brazil as we can grow enough beef for ourselves and surplus for export without need to burn any forest. This very quickly removes the profit incentive for deliberate forest fires to create short term beef grazing.
Political puppets of the bigfood cartels
The political puppets of the bigfood cartels who dismantled governance and neutralized regulatory bodies in Brazil that facilitated the deliberate forest fires did so for personal glory and gain. We must name and shame these greedy uncaring profiteers, that means the people who make huge profit at the top of the export and import cartels. When China, the European Union, and the United States stop buying low grade fast food from Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay it will automatically dismantle the profit mechanism for the beef, poultry, and soy cartels very quickly. Then we can restore protections for the Amazon and begin cooperation for the deliberate reforestation of the entire planet.
Find the cause – fix the problem
In the short and medium term – the Oxygen producing rainforests of our world are seriously compromised and Oxygen levels in the atmosphere have drastically fallen and will continue to fall. This is about the current fires in the Amazon, the fires in Siberia, the commercial deforestation in Oceania and that we now have very little mature forest left anywhere on planet Earth. Growing new native forests must be a planned global initiative that observes all ecological impacts / benefits while denying corporate profits. But, it will take many years before these new forests will restore the Oxygen production to sufficiently repair the current Oxygen deficiency. During this period – (if allowed) the global warming / cooling / climate change scam will seek to increase tax on the low paid shifting blame from the cause to the victim. Media opinion will promote this shifting of blame and attach guilt to the consumption of beef with another tax but none of these taxation scams will fix the problem. Media opinion refers to the rainforests as the “lungs of this planet” but this is disinformation as lungs consume Oxygen releasing CO2 when the truth is that our rainforests produce Oxygen while consuming CO2.
Very little fossil Oxygen left
We are drowning in an atmosphere that is deficient in its Oxygen content and this is affecting us in many ways. We have very little fossil Oxygen left in our atmosphere. Two hundred years of industrial revolution have basically mined our atmosphere of its Oxygen content. This is very serious because we have also destroyed the Oxygen producing rainforests as well. So, the problem is: we have run out of Oxygen; we have destroyed our forests, the source of new Oxygen.
The destruction of our rainforests has destroyed our source of Oxygen production and the only place we can now harvest the Oxygen from is the fossil AIR, this is the huge problem and we are in big trouble. As we consume the fossil Oxygen we do not really notice the levels dropping. I suggest that the best way to see this invisible reality is to consider ourselves as goldfish swimming at the bottom of the bowl and the level of water is constantly dropping but we do not see it because we are swimming at the bottom of the bowl...

Hemp cultivation creates Oxygen
The Oxygen % of our atmosphere needs urgent repair because of the fire damage to the Amazon rainforests that are a major part of the Oxygen production for this planet. The immediate short term repair requires a focused and determined global response. One acre of Hemp absorbs 10 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere while giving us 10 tons of Oxygen. Hemp grows fast and with two crops a year easily achievable in hotter climates one acre can absorb 20 tons of CO2 and give us 20 tons of Oxygen every year. Hemp has huge benefits for humankind but was criminalised by bigoil for commercial reasons – this corporate commercial 'criminalisation' can be undone overnight.
We, the people of the land must make this decision, not corporations or their puppets. We must grow Hemp to breathe Oxygen rich air, we must respect Nature as supreme being and comprehend, copy and compliment Nature.

Celitic Camp Warrior Champion
As last year's champion Niamh will be presenting this Celtic Style Sword to the champion of 2019...will it be you?
Friendship, exercise and a visit to the Temple are some of the things that happen on a volunteer day here. There's a task set out for the day and we approach it under the guiding principal of Tóg é go bog é....take it easy. Yes,it's a physical task, however in the space of working side by side breathing fresh air, magic can happen......our connection to the Land around us deepens, and when this is a shared experience our sense of connection with Nature is amplified.
You are also helping us out at the Temple with some of the simple and practical things that we really struggle to get done. This not only helps us achieve more in the day but it also enhances the future experience of visitors and seekers to the Temple.
We're meeting up here at Celtic Druid Temple this Saturday the 29th from 11am - 4pm. Lunch is provided. Email here to let us know you'll be arriving. If you can't make it this Saturday but would like to join us on another Saturday email us and we'll add your address to our volunteer email contacts.

Dagda is the good god of Ireland's Tuatha de Dannan. For a long time now He has lived only in high stories around Celtic Camp fires but with guidance our Druí Daltaí will discover that He has started on His long awaited return journey to the Realm of Land. Dagda is our Ollathair meaning 'All-Father', He is a chieftain and a druid. He is bringing his cauldron 'Undry' which gives sustainable food and reincarnates warriors. He will carry 'Uaithne' a three string 4 corner living oak harp that plays the music of sorrow, of joy and of dreaming. He also brings his war club that can give or take life. Dagda has two marvellous swine - one always roasting, the other always growing - and ever-laden fruit trees.
We look at three times: past, present and future and we can see the first emergence of Dagda into view from Ourland about 6000 years ago. We will see how two thousand years ago He was called by other names – Cuchullain and Fionn McCumhaill. On our upcoming Slí an Druí Celtic Spirituality Weekend our Druí Daltaí learn where they can see and connect to Dagda, Undry, Uaithne, the war club and the abundance of the re-incarnating boar and ever-laden fruit trees...
In the world of the Celtic Druid there are Three Realms outside us and Three Cauldrons inside us. This reflects “as above so below” but there is a challenge for each seeker on a Celtic Path! While the Three Realms have their constant exchange and interaction the Three Cauldrons have to be arranged to be upright and full. These inner cauldrons are called 'An Coire Goriath' (Cauldron of Warming - belly), 'An Coire Ernmae' (Cauldron of Vocation - chest) and 'An Coire Sois' (Cauldron of Wisdom - head).
Usually, only the Cauldron of Warming is the right way up at birth, otherwise we could not sustain our life. The goal of the Druí Dalta (student druid) is to understand how to cleanse their three cauldrons, to fill them and to sustain all three in an upright position. This then allows the cauldrons to be filled and overflow and as each Druí becomes a better channel for Imbass we develop our connection to the Primordial Tradition.
On our upcoming Slí an Druí Celtic Spirituality Weekend our Druí Daltaí learn how to cleanse and fill all Three Cauldrons and how to cause them to overflow – then with dedication, practice and unrelenting focus each seeker becomes a stronger and stronger channel for the flow of Imbass.
The Three Realms are the Sky, the Sea and the Land. Two examples from the Táin Bó Cúailnge will help - When Sualtaim (Cuchulains father) was told about his son fighting against the odds he called out: "This is from afar. Is it the sky that cracks or the sea that ebbs or the earth that splits or is it the distress of my son against the Foray of Cuailgne".
When Sualtaim spoke to King Conor - the king replied "A little too loud is that cry, for the sky is above us, the earth beneath us, and the sea all around us, but unless the sky with its showers of stars fall upon the surface of the earth or unless the ground burst open in an earthquake, or unless the fish abounding blue bordered sea come over the surface of the earth, I shall..."
From this we see that our ancestors saw that the Three Realms make their world.
Each day our spiritual practice as Celtic Druí tunes us into the Three Realms as we align with the Way of our Ancestors. In the video you can see me doing my Triple Blessings which connect me to the Three Realms - this is a foundation practice that helps each Druí Daltaí (student druid) to tune in more deeply than would be imagined at first. We practice this Triple Blessing every day on our upcoming Slí an Druí Celtic Spirituality Weekend
Go Fund Me Fundraiser by Niamh Connor
We've planted a forest in the West of Ireland and now we are opening it up to the community. Trees give us so much. They are the foundation of our Culture. Co create and share the abundance of the Candlefield Community Forest. #celticforestnation
I reached the age of 16 without realising I had a choice. I questioned and resisted the common narrative with passion but it wasn’t until I was standing in the school line for 'catholic confession' when I thought to ask about choice. I directed the question to the teacher in charge of religious instruction and beyond all expectations she answered truthfully, that yes, I did have a choice. So I stepped out of the line and proceeded to tell each young woman that she too had a choice to go or not to go to confession with the priest in the mobile wooden confession box. I was the only one of 30 who stepped out and stayed out of that line.
When I was 18 I decided to leave Ireland for good, I felt that I could never be accepted in Ireland. My challenging questions and evolving concepts of the world seemed to confuse and bewilder the people around me. I was angry and I wanted change. So off I went in search of utopia. Some years later whilst sitting alone in a little apartment in South Korea I realised I still had a choice and that how I live and what I believe in will always be my choice.
So I came home to Ireland and embarked on an adventure into Freedom. When I actively peeled away the layers of preconditioned catholic guilt and shame I realised that the freedom to be me in every single breath is the most challenging and wonderful aspect of living. I still want change. I would love to share a life with people where creative passions are encouraged, where you keep the benefit of your own labour and share your abundance. I realise now that in order to create the loving world I wish for I cannot expect other people to make the changes to suit me. I create my own unique way of life.
On our 16 acres of Land in Éire, I watch trees grow, I help make space for them to grow and I make pathways between them. The birds and animals are moving in to this young forest. The bird song is loud and the evidence of wild animals throughout the forest is clear. Fungi have appeared. The foundation layers of abundance have been established. Our aim is to help reintroduce the human back into the forest by showing how valuable a resource it truly is.
Many people come to visit us and whilst I guide them through the young forest I am perplexed by their questioning. They ask me questions about being a Celtic Druí and as they question me they miss the features of the walk. I try to explain that being a Celt and a Druí is a way of life, but this is not sufficient. They want me to compare my way of life to other religions or they make comparisons to some idealised version of what a Druid should be. This idealised version appears to come from a mix of books and films. Many appear disappointed that I don’t want to explain my way of life with words. Although we are physically beside each other it feels as if the inquisitor is not walking with me in the spirit of growth but rather they ask questions for their own entertainment under the category of educational. For me, to define what a Celt or Druid is, is to limit that definition to my personal opinion, and a definition immediately establishes a set of criteria with judgement and comparison following. I really disappoint visitors when I cannot quote from the Labor Gabhala or recite the Táin Bo Cuailigne. I like the old stories, I like hearing people’s theories on decoding them but I am not an academic nor do I speak old Irish. I find my ancestors in the landscape that surrounds me.
I regularly visit a sacred site quite close to our farm in Castlerea. It is called Rathra or Rathbarna as well as Mullaghdooey Hill. There has never been an archaeological dig there, it was briefly surveyed and its measurements recorded. As I walk the site I wonder what happened there in the past, I wonder who stood there before me, and each time I ask these questions I feel the important answer is not what happened there in the past but what can happen here and now. I believe this perspective is very important for our growth as a Celtic family.
Most of the people in the Celtic Homelands of today are dependent on industrial food production and are trapped within a system of debt. The government systems in all our homelands put State before People. These systems of oppression which dictate a certain way of life cannot be changed overnight. People daily renew their choice to participate in these systems. We cannot force or impose change on others. We can however lead by example by being happy, by shining brightly and by growing a strong new vibrant culture rooted in the Land upon which we live.
I believe our wisdom traditions are born from our direct experience with the Land, Sea and Sky. They are evolving and changing with every moment of growth. The traditions of our ancestors are not ours to blindly repeat, we are awake and interacting consciously with the world around us today. It is the task of those of us awake to relentlessly focus on this present moment of expression. To write a history, to define a belief system and impose structure is to risk getting lost in the intellectual realm, to dress up eight times a year and perform ceremony and go to sleep for the rest of the year is to risk getting lost in romanticism. Our lineage and culture come from our way of life and that way of life is determined by where we live and our interaction with Nature. When our bellies are being filled from the harvest of the locality we have the potential for full health. When we create this harvest together we have a better opportunity for sharing from the heart. When we as a people share from the heart we have a foundation upon which to collectively shape our culture and generate new living traditions. The wisdom of the Celt runs deep, our connection to our past and to our ancestors is in our heart. We do not need to prove we are Celts. We cannot reconstruct what a Celt or a Druid was in the past. We are Celts and we can choose to live as Celts by presenting ourselves with dignity and truth with the intention of nurturing a way of life that supports us. We need to create space for new growth and this involves sharing a life together. This will naturally happen when individuals make conscious effort to change their way of life, each individual will express their way of life uniquely but the commonality will exist in the deep respect and connection for and with Nature.
The key, I suggest, lies first in accepting the reality we are in, a war torn world where those who express freedom are a small minority. We do not need to be taught or trained to live in harmony. When there is no threat of harm, when there is no threat of insufficiency humans will naturally work together for food, fuel and shelter. We have not forgotten how to do this, instead we are been prevented from doing this. Force has been consistently used in many different guises to ensure that we cannot live without dependence on an administration system which seeks to profit from our labour.
Freedom is not taught, it is lived. You know in your heart what it means to be free, to be truly free to live your life with passion. You cannot plead or petition others for this, you claim it and actively renew it with every breath. We each have a Celtic seed within us, our role is not to indoctrinate this seed but to nurture it and actively seek ways to express our passion. We have a choice to co create a way of life that can sustain us as a family. Our family needs to be nourished, sheltered and protected from all enemies of Truth and Light. I believe that in order to provide this fertile space for our Celtic family to evolve we need to stay focused on co-creating abundance.
Our farm here in Éire is where we, Con and I chose to start. Our forest already provides abundance for the wildlife that lives in it and as it grows there will be a great harvest for us too. I constantly remind myself of the reality that no matter what we call ourselves no matter what we identify as, it is our actions that will inspire, encourage or distract. It is each of our individual actions that will co-create our family and our community.
