Samhain Fire Ceremony

October 31 at 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Do come and join us for a sacred fire ceremony to celebrate Samhain – meaning “summers end” in the Celtic calendar. This is a transition gateway and it is when the veil between the worlds, this world and the spirit world is the thinnest. Hence the modern day Halloween festival which comes from Samhain. Traditionally all the fires from Ireland would be relit from the fire kindled by the King’s chief druid on the hill of Tlachtga. Each family would then keep the fire burning for the year. The assemblies of the five Irish provinces also took place at Samhain at the Hill of Tara – the Seat of the Irish King.

This fire is also in honour of the Ancestors.

This ceremony starts at 7.30pm. We hope to see you there!

Tea and refreshments will be available afterwards – fires are free although if you feel like bringing some tea or biccies along it is much appreciated thank you!

Please everyone wait at the car park and we will walk up together and leave together or in groups for the fire ceremony please don’t be walking up on your own. Thank you.
