A short video clip of "Ancient Music Ireland" playing in Temple Crom during the Gathering of the Celtic Druid Alliance 23-25 Sept 2016. Many will not know the significance of the three blasts on the long horn but it is a powerful event in our Gaelic Celtic Culture. The Hill of Allen is called Dún Ailinne (Knockaulin) and has special relevance to all on an Irish Celtic Path. The great hero Finn McCoole would use his war horn Borabú to call the warriors of Ireland to defend us from foreign attack. Borabú was played for Irish soldiers in May 2016 and again for the Celtic Druid Alliance in September 2016 - may the Celtic Spirit continue to rise...
The War Horn of Finn McCoole at the inaugural gathering of the Celtic Druid Alliance at Temple Crom 23-25 September 2016
Finn McCoole in the night sky
Finn McCoole and his Borabú war horn are visible in the night sky right now throughout October. Commonly referred to as the star group Orion we see this Winter champion as Finn McCoole. Right now there is a meteor shower from October the 2nd to November the 7th 2016 peaking on the 20th of October emanating from the mouth of Borabú. Look to the Skies and connect with the ancestors. They are always there - you just have to look up and if you see shooting stars just say "Borabú" and recall the great warrior of Celtic Ireland - Finn McCoole!
