expressing my great appreciation of the
evocative words we have just heard - may I just add that Mr.
been instrumental in the creation and gradual
development of a shrine and centre for creativity - of a musical,
artistic nature where the magical Bardic
tradition of our forefathers can be continued in the harmonies of Music
where things of Beauty may be carved, painted
and depicted and ritual festivals celebrated.
Each Goddess would
have had local festivals in her honour and
indeed, topically, from October 31st to November 2nd was the Festival of
ancient Irish Goddess, Samhain.
By participating in this Wexford Festival, a time-honored tradition is being kept
alive. Enchantment and inspiration are fostered and so - perhaps - the Goddess is still with us.
The speakers were
then thanked by Mr. Mark Feenan.
The lecture was organized by Mrs. Craig, a director of the Wexford Arts Centre.
