Lughnasa is one of the eight festivals of the Pagan year, and according to the Celts, the first day of autumn. The heat of the sun puts a stop to summer growth and begins to dry out the crops during the Dog Days, supposedly the hottest days of the year. The harvest begins - an occasion of the utmost importance when the work of the whole cycle starts to pay off, and when the First Fruits were offered to the Gods.

This new work explores the complex mythic themes and history of Lughnasa, along with ways of celebrating the festival with rituals, food and magic.
