All welcome to attend, pagans, those of any religion or none, just bring an attitude of gratitude and a small harvest offering. A ceremony to give thanks and gratitude for the blessings we have received this year. Please bring an offering, something you have grown or made, or a symbol of something you are grateful for.
Following on from the fantastic celebration we had at Aideen’s Grave for Summer Solstice, I’d love you to attend a Harvest celebration in the same place on Saturday 17th August at 8 pm. I know it’s not Lughnasa, it’s the first weekend that myself and some other friends that I really would like to attend can be there. I’m hoping that we could have some music and storytelling in the Deer Park Hotel bar afterwards, with everyone participating, so if you have a drum, guitar, flute or an appropriate story to tell, please bring it with you. Some people have suggested meeting in Howth earlier in the day with children, if you decide to do that, please feel free to post suggestions and meeting up times on the Facebook event page, but I won’t be involved until the evening event.

Aideen’s Grave is a portal tomb located in the grounds of Deer Park Hotel, Howth, Co. Dublin. There is car parking available at the hotel, and Howth DART Station is nearby. The 31 bus from Dublin city centre stops near the entrance to the grounds, from there or from the DART station it’s a beautiful walk uphill past Howth Castle. When you reach Deer Park Hotel, walk around the right hand side of the building and take the path leading towards the woods. There is a sign for the dolmen on a path leading to the right and it’s a very short walk from there.
