Fairy Forts in Folk Tradition

I recently closed down my sacred landscape blog, The Faery Fort, and moved its contents to the CauldronFire Witchcraft site. Let’s face it–it’s easier to manage a single resource, and I find that too much social media drains me. In honor of fairy forts, here’s a podcast on this fascinating topic by one of my favorite podcasting teams @ Blúiriní Béaloidis, with Claire and Jonny from the National Folklore Collection at University College, Dublin.

Claire and Jonny have their own wonderful patter, and this episode is particularly interesting. If you’d like to know more about the intersection between modern life in Ireland and old faery traditions and prohibitions, give this a listen.

Enjoy that waning full moon.

I'm a witch, a dowser, a seer and an enthusiastic sacred site traveler. I work with altered states, seership, divination, ancestor veneration, faery tradition, and several Celtic deities. I grew up in New England, currently live in Oregon, and am a hereditary witch who grew up in a different but wonderful tradition. In the mid-1990s I co-founded the Strand by Strand Collective, Portland's first public ritual group in the Reclaiming Tradition. I trained and taught in the Reclaiming Tradition for many years, including years in a teaching collective, and various circles, covens, and magical activism groups. Influential teachers over the years have included: Pandora O'Mallory, Starhawk, Gwydion, Thorn Coyle, Diana Paxson, Inanna, Lora O'Brien, RJ Stewart and Orion Foxwood.
