The Land Speaks: Irish Myth & Magic

With Manchán Magan


Our ancestors developed a uniquely nature-focused society, centred on esteemed poets, seers, monks, healers and wise women who were deeply connected to the land. They used this connection to the cycles of the natural world – from which we are increasingly dissociated – as an animating force in their lives.

Manchán Magan traces the footsteps of our animate ancestors across the bogs, rivers and mountains of Ireland, unearthing remnants of myth, magic and language to remind us that we can still listen to the land speak.
