Re: [savetara.com] A blessed Samhain
- Thanks Ellen, thats lovely :) I nearly fell into that meringue picture LOL.Last night we did the Drum Circle at Collierstown but just as we started we were drenched in a torrential downpour that seemed to come from all sides. The drums didnt like the weather either so we kept it short and sweet to allow us enough time to get to Tlachtga ( Hill of Ward, Athboy) for the Procession and Fire Ceremony there. This was attended by about 200 people and a reenactment of the legend of the Goddess Tlachtga was staged and songs and chants performed. It was really fantatic. The last time they did one as good as it was when Adge acted as the blind Druid and Tlachtga's father Mog Ruith. A different man took his place last night but Adge was remembered fondly. Bread and ale were shared out and the names of those who have passed over were called from the crowds by those who wanted their loved ones remembered at the ceremony. Thankfully the rain stayed away too :) From there the Tara crew went back to the Hill where musicians entertained all night long. Unfortunately I headed back to Dublin as I am just getting over the flu and didnt want to push it too much but I heard the craic was brilliant. Many thanks to those who attended especially at Collierstown in the heavy rain- that took some serious dedication!Carmel----- Original Message -----From: Ellen E HopmanTo: celticcrossings ; Celtic Nation ; Celtic-Well@yahoogroups.com ; firstname.lastname@example.org ; Save TaraSent: Friday, October 30, 2009 9:13 PMSubject: [savetara.com] A blessed Samhain
