Lughnasadh ritual with Raven’s Cry ADF Druid’s Grove
July 29 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm$10
The first of the great harvest festivals, Lughnasadh is a time when the four tribes, typically at odds, would gather in the very heart of Eire to feast. Tailtiu, Lugh’s step mother, who exhausted herself clearing the fields for planting, requested on her deathbed that games be held in her honor. Every year, to honor her passing, the tribes joined in peace to compete, putting aside past misdeeds or ancient grudges. May we too gather in good faith, as one tribe, to acknowledge each other’s hard work and contribution toward the harvest, knowing that whatever we sow here this eve will be reaped in due time. May it be so, or “Bíodh sé Amhlaidh” in Irish Gaelic.
