In a land like ours, the old beliefs bring pleasure and wisdom ...

Many Irish traditions, still alive today, reach back to a time before Christianity, before St Patrick, when nature was celebrated and the female spirit was honoured.

Jo Kerrigan takes us on a magical journey into the worlds of druids and pookas, legendary heroes and warrior queens; from the breathtaking Skelligs and the powerfull Gougana Barra to your humble hedgerow, which may hold the secrets to fertility, health and happiness.
Old Ways, Old Secrets lifts Ireland´s modern layers to reveal a hidden world beneath, connecting us to our ancestors and unlocking the mysteries of our beautiful landscape.
