Celebrating Bealtaine and May Day

You are warmly invited to join us on Sunday 30th April, 7 – 9pm, for a special celebration of the Celtic fire festival of Bealtaine, May Day, and the traditional start of summer. This is a time to emerge from the darker half of the year and open ourselves to the growth, warmth, joy and abundance of the summer season.

We will draw on the rich traditions of Bealtaine that reflect our connection with nature and the spirit of the land, decorating the May-bush and lighting twin Bealtaine fires in the Celtic Gardens. We will celebrate with song, story, a meditation, making intentions, and seasonal ritual. After the main celebration you are welcome to stay and share a poem or song around the fire, with a cuppa and chat.

This event is brought to you by Ann Marie Horan, Caroline McFadden, Jacinta Corbett and Jenny Beale.

All are welcome, there is a €20 contribution to Brigit’s Garden, with a €15 concession option or supporting contribution of €25. Please email jenny@brigitsgarden.ie if you require a free place.
