Hi to all our members and friends and welcome to our new subscribers. The Druí of Celtic Druid Temple will celebrate the Full Moon with ceremony this Friday the 12th of August at 8pm at Tara, Temple Crom and at 7pm in Vienna, Austria. You can read more about joining our Full Moon ceremony on our website here. Con's first book has arrived from the printers and there are only two (out of four) places remaining for the workshop at the end of this month. We are also now hosting tours of Celtic Druid Temple until the Autumn Equinox. All the details including how to book are in the main body of this newsletter at this link.
Your Celtic Path, a seekers guide - a new book of guidance written in OgamNua is now in stock. First batch of pre ordered books are now in the post. Two places are still available on the Weekend Course dates 26, 27 and 28 August 2022. More info on how to order your copy of the book and to book your place on the weekend here
Happy Lughnasa weekend - on Tuesday 2nd of August just a few moments after the Sun has set the bright star we call Shalinnis in Lugh (Regulus in Leo) will grow huge as it briefly appears to our view - then it will go below the horizon. This is the timing for the high day/night of Lughnasa season of the Eightfold Year.
Do not be fooled into celebrating our ancient Tuatha De Dannan festivals on the relatively modern (16c) Gregorian catholic calendar.
Reclaim your heritage and celebrate Lughnasa by sharing your harvest - whatever that may be. If you can, without looking at the Sun, watch the horizon and see if Lugh winks at you. Blessings of the old gods to all. Image set as if viewed from Tara.
Con’s first book “Your Celtic Path, a seekers guide” is ready and the first delivery from the printers is expected by July’s Full Moon. Over 400 pages written in OgamNua offering guidance, teachings and inspiritation to all seekers of the Celtic Path. The first 40 pages tells the story of the creation of Ogam/Ogham by Ogma of the Tuatha Dé Danann and undoes the fake Ogham of the church and Graves etc., in a ‘step by step’ process so that we can clearly see exactly what they did. This allows us to fully dismiss their fake versions as we reverse their cultural misappropriation and restore our indigenous Irish linear script tradition. Owners of “Your Celtic Path, a seekers guide” will learn how to read and write in OgamNua and as they translate the OgamNua message into English: readers will gain access to the wisdom shared.
You can pre-order your copy or multiple copies of the book -
“Your Celtic Path, a seekers guide” directly from us. If you would like a personal or gift dedication handwritten in OgamNua by the author please let us know what you want written in OgamNua in advance (max 10 words).

Many seekers go out of balance as they step away from over-control by those who exploit them, be they state, system or any church. When out-of-balance seekers meet others who are also out-of-balance they can easily fool themselves into feelings of comfort as they no longer feel alone. But to be in the false comfort of any out-of-balance group actually means you are still out of balance.... even if they have made a cosy space for you! Watch out though because there is always a cult leader making profit (ego or pocket)...
When you realise this - you should have a plan to get back into balance as quickly as possible. This may mean leaving the comfort of every out-of-balance group and setting out on your own path as a solitary seeker once more. This requires grown up bravery. Don't bother with recriminations or sharing your understandings with the out-of-balance comfort group - instead - quietly thank them and sort out any issues or stuff peacefully if the opportunity exists. Then move on and reflect on the dynamics, the victimhood and the illusions that were used to bind the out-of-balance group together and make a plan that such notions will never happen for you in your future.
This is the Way of the Seeker. To create balance and harmony you should not look outside, you should look inside. You must use the knowledge and experience of your outside life to assemble the wisdom to create your own balance and harmony inside. Then because you have changed yourself - your outer world changes too.
Our ancestors saw their world as being of two complimentary halves – male and female. Their gods and goddesses worked to preserve the balance of harmony. With harmony great progress is possible, but without that harmony chaos ensues causing shortages, misery and stagnation. Problems appear when any group becomes a gender based group or has a single gender god or goddess to ‘worship’. Such groups are cults and the cult leader speaks for the god or goddess... This system also requires a ‘hate’ figure who is used as a binder in that the entire group hates the same person. In the most bizarre sense the hate figure is the opposite of the cult leader. If you, as a seeker, find your self in a group that has a hated person / gender / group you will, if you look with open eyes, see that there is a cult leader too who speaks for the selected god / goddess. Run!
Cult leaders are power tripping and totally out of balance with the idea of harmony. We, as seekers, need to reconnect with the partnership idea to get back into balance. We should try to transform any "dominator" model to a "partnership" model. The dominator model includes ‘patriarchy’ which means the rule of the father and ‘matriarchy’ which means rule of the mother. They can both be generalised to mean rule by men or women and by extension ‘gods and goddesses’. A ‘partnership’ path is a better balanced path for all seekers and it is desirable because it is more emotionally healthy than the patriarchal or matriarchal options available today.
Or imagine all the above said another way - that there was only a male god in charge... In no time at all he’d be out of balance and angry and grumpy and cause hurt and fear and panic and his people would be sad. Or - imagine all the above said another way - that there was only a female goddess in charge... In no time at all she’d be out of balance and angry and grumpy and cause hurt and fear and panic and her people would be sad. Then imagine the partnership option of a god and goddess, we get a sew-saw with ups and downs, he gets better ideas about some things, she gets better ideas about some things but together they seek to create balance and harmony. There would be no room for cult leaders but there would be room for co-operation in partnership co-creating a future.
Before reading the following be aware that the cult being exposed is not honouring our ancestors instead they are attempting to impose their gaudy new 'old religion' as indigenous. Know its creation history by reading 'stopping the wiccan burning cult'.
The 1st whistleblower on the cult was just after the burning of the paraffin soaked 14’ high 8 spoke willow wheel (sacred sun symbol) on the actual ground inside the sacred temple at Tlachtga, just a few miles from Tara on catholick Halloween in 2018. I will refer to all anonymous whistle blowers as ‘he’. He felt it was all wrong and very disrespectful. He sent me a series of messages which allowed me to get an understanding of what was done and who the main performers were. My message to the Keeper of the Hill of Tlachtga got him to quickly visit the monument to take a series of photographs of the fire damage to the sacred site. With this info and pics I became the 2nd whistleblower on the cult when I wrote the ‘stopping the wiccan burning cult’ report. I got a garda investigation going with a pulse number, I got details of the minister’s grant aid to Cllr Gilroy of taxpayers funds, but there was no licence issued for any burning of anything on Tlachtga. Then all government departments ‘clammed up’ and eventually the garda response was 'there is no damage' – blindness to the wrong doings of their masters prevailed.
This was followed by a very stupid written threat (published below) from a solicitor who effectively became the 3rd whistleblower. In his letter he named his clients as – Gemma McGowan, Deirdre Wadding, Patsy Preston, Karen Ward, John Cantwell, Eimer Burke. (Note Eimer Burke is the current head of the english masonic obod group, Deirdre Wadding is the active head of the Fulloship of Isis). Until his letter I had no documented proof of who the perpetrators actually were – this is the 1st count of that solicitor being a whistleblower. Like many solicitor’s letters it was a puffed up snot of threats and demands. His 2nd count as a whistleblower was when he declared – "my clients are of the view that these publications (my report – “stopping the wiccan burning cult”) are designed to initiate hatred and damage to their current and future engagements in the cultural and heritage life." This means ‘money or revenue loss’ was their real concern. I was accused in his letter of defamation – this notion relates to potential loss of money by his clients because I exposed what they (his clients above) did on Tlachtga. The poor fool thought I’d be in fear when I would get his letter, instead I laughed because I could see right through it and how any legal action would involve 3 ministers of state, a corrupt garda report, a county councillor and a gaggle of money and glory seeking performers as well as how the president of Ireland was unwittingly (I hope) tricked into playing a role in a great deception at Uisneach. I could not personally organise all the above into a court case but the arrogant fools in the cult almost could...lol.
Copies of the ‘stopping the wiccan burning cult’ report were supplied to all county councillors in Meath, to all tourism and heritage businesses and to all national newspapers. Its a very small clique that runs Ireland and they all clammed up. I wrote to Mr Clarke at Uisneach, and to Mr Clarke at Tlachtga informing them of what was happening. No replies were received.
And just after the interpolated cross quarter cosplay vulgar chanting performances at Uisneach 2022 by Deirdre Wadding’s synthetic costumed drum bangers – the 4th whistleblower sends me 3 messages that I’ve added together to be one report with my responses noted.
He says - “Hi apologies for the late message, I've just read your blog on stopping the wiccan burning cult which I was lead to from your post. I was previously involved in some of the ceremonies and I attended uisneach this year. Reading that blog made me sick to my stomach and brought up feelings of pure shame. I didn't fully realise what/who I was involved with and the symbolism behind it all A lot of stuff previously didn't make sense to me....and I say this with shame... especially my own ancestry, heritage and I guess my roots until I read that blog, it's helped put another piece of the puzzle together for me and I thank you for that I offer my sincerest apologies for ever being involved in these ceremonies and now that I understand fully what they are about, I will never attend one again. My eyes have truly been opened...wow I'm just blown away This message comes with deepest gratitude for the work you both do
(I said - “thank you for sharing, thank you for listening to your heart, thank you for seeing through the gaudy glamour, thank you for your respect for our ancestors.” Grá Con)
He says - And thank you for helping to open my eyes even more to it all. It never felt right but now I understand why I feel truly gutted today that I willingly took part but on the upside it's opened a new door & path of understanding for me, from the bottom of my heart thank you
(I said - “great stuff - thank you for sharing. I quoted you anonymously hoping to encourage others to do so too. Check out https://www.celticdruidtemple.com/blog/nabs-the-cosplay-cults-interpolated-fake-bealtane” )
He says - I just read that and yes absolutely do what feels right...I was one of those women dressed in white in 2018...omg the shame I was also one of the herbalists "holding space" for the fire in 2019 I knew nothing about men not being allowed to partake, I was asked to be involved and i thought why not I know patsy Preston for over 25 years and i never thought she would be involved in anything that would be harmful to our ancestors, our sacred sites or our heritage, but the cycle of government funding and grants in all areas had me questioning a lot of things. Your blog confirmed so much for me...the level of infiltration runs so deep fucking hell my brain hurts but I'm also grateful
The above attached pic is of Deirdre Wadding – active participant and speaker at the wiccan burning cult of Talchtga 2018, the cult leader of the chanting drum bangers at the interpolated cross quarter cosplay event at Uisneach 2022 and so much more...
The pic below is of the letter from a solicitor confirming the exact names of the leaders of the 'wiccan burning cult' and that their main concern is income loss at being exposed. I reckon he charged them at least €50 each and was chancing his arm at getting me to pay him too...lol
Hi to all our members and friends,
The Druí of Celtic Druid Temple will celebrate the Full Moon with ceremony this Moonday the 16th of May at 8pm at Tara, Temple Crom and at 7pm in Vienna, Austria. Our full newsletter is in the link below. As well as the full moon ceremony we have a sacred fire workshop and volunteer opportunity coming up next month. full details in the link:
On their interpolated fake Beltane date in 2022 we once again see the chanting misandrists of the leftovers of the Fullowship of Isis led by Deirdre Wadding beating their drums, carrying paraffin fire sticks polluting the air and the sacred energy at one of Ireland’s better known ancient monuments. Lady Robertson would not approve of burning ancient goddess temples or ancient symbols. The New Age Bandits (NABs) did their vulgar display of public narcissism in 2018 while dressed in synthetic stage costumes with laughable headwear. At Uisneach they held a circle around the central fire of women in white keeping all men outside as audience. This egg shape circle was penetrated by a sterile little man who they all pretended ‘could give life’ to their conception magic. Then they burned Tlachtga on catholick Halloween while wearing xmas lights as part of their costumes. On the ground inside this ancient temple to the goddess Tlachtga they burned a vertical 14ft circle of willow with 8 willow spokes - the symbol of the Eightfold Year of our ancestors causing very visible damage to the temple. They used paraffin, even leaving the empty cans behind them. What vulgar people do things like this? What is their real intention of the New Age Bandits?
At Uisneach the intention is presented as reviving ‘our ancient traditions’. But there is no proof of any ancient ‘goddess cult hating men’ or of performers such as Vikings doing mock battle! There is no evidence either of our ancestors defiling the sacred triple spiral of Brú na Boinne (Newgrange) by inverted rotation and horizontal inversion to look like a shamrock and to then set it alight having soaked it in paraffin! See attached image of the sacred triple spiral and the inverted burning insult shamrock. When a symbol or flag is inverted it’s meaning is inverted. At the end of the Easter Rising in 1916 the soldiers of the imperial oppressor stood at each end of O’Connell street with the ‘Irish Republic’ banner (flag with words) inverted as part of a photographic report to their masters. This was not done to the tricolour but to the flag that said ‘Irish Republic’. They sent a message by this action - what message does the owner of the ground of Uisneach send to the world when the air at the interpolated cross quarter performance stinks of paraffin and the inverted reversed triple spiral burns dark red with black smoke tails from the paraffin soaked cloths that were wrapped around it?
As we escape from the 100% control by the church of fear - there is a vacuum that many synthetic groups seek to fill with 'celtic' fake spirituality as their cover. Many shame men groups use the reversed shamrock version of the Brú Na Boinne triple spiral, the pick and mix wucckies and their masonic oboddys co-opt Ireland’s Bealtane festival in to their Kabbala based system and the narcissistic misandrist performers have evolved it all into a princess cult of the Fullowship of Isis. This is all done on catholick holydays or on made up interpolated dates for commercial purposes. Does the landowner at Uisneach know what he is being used for?
Attached below is a message sharing shock and horror from a person who just realised what is going on at the sacred temples of Ourland. The persons name is not displayed to avoid any ....
Quote “I've just read your blog on stopping the wiccan burning cult which I was lead to from your post. I was previously involved in some of the ceremonies and I attended uisneach this year.

My response - “thank you for sharing, thank you for listening to your heart, thank you for seeing through the gaudy glamour, thank you for your respect for our ancestors.”
I wonder if I'll get another solicitor's letter for telling the truth again - the last one expressed concern about damage to their "current and future engagements" i.e. making money from their vulgar theatrics ... see below
I quickly published this stupid threat and do so again now without fear because the full facts would get aired if Deirdre Wadding and her misandrist chanting cult could afford to pay a greedy law bandit to take it further. Imagine if the full truth of the govt funding Cllr John Gilroy for the burning of Tlachtga, a national monument under govt protection, or if Miggledy Higgledy's sterile magic got main stream headines because it featured in an imperial commercial court of law! The freemasonic parentage of obod, the wuckies and the Fullowship of Isis and their intentions in Ireland would get great coverage...
