Celtic Tree Walk
Laws, Letters, Lore of our Old Irish Trees
Our new Celtic Tree Trail , set in the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East in South Co. Carlow, will show our guests the world of the Celts and their reverence for Ireland’s native trees. Come and see our recently commissioned 16 minute film explaining who the Celts were and why they reverenced our Celtic Trees and discover the 7 Noble or Chieftain Trees. We will then visit our Ogham Stone set in 5 acres of young Oak and tell the story of this ancient type of writing and how it was so closely related to the native trees of Ireland 2500 years ago.
Finally we visit each Noble tree ( all of which we have on our grounds) and we tell the uses and mythology of each tree as well as the penalty or Dire for cutting down or damaging a Noble in Celtic Times.
We have stories to tell. Stories of our forbears the Celts . Stories of mystery, folklore, tradition and history. The Chieftain trees as Thomas Gray said “ dreaming out their old stories to the wind” Hear them with us ,on our Celtic Tree Trail.
