Drink and you shall have the second sight, but be warned; Faerie is a feral realm, her landscapes strange and shifting, full of figures fell and beckoning - and that coveted gift of sight is not one she accepts returned - or at least not without the eyes attached.

The Irish Celtic Cross is a symbol that conjures up all the mystery of the Dark Ages. It is also a popular symbol of faith, whether the belief is pagan, christian or of any other religion. But perhaps it is most widely known as a powerful symbol of Irish heritage....... #irishcelticcraftshop #irishhistory #irelandtravel #irishheritage #trinity #leprechaunhunting #ireland 🍀 #Ireland #irishancestry #irishtrails #irishamerican #americanirish #irishtrad #celticfolklore #celticcross #graveyard #cemetryseries #irishcastles #oldireland #forgottenireland #rocks #limestone #slime

Yesterday I visited one of my favourite spots in the county, Pentre Ifan Burial Chamber in the Preseli mountains. As the sun sets behind it, with no noise except for the bleating of newly born lambs, you can not help but feel a connection to the ancestors and feel overwhelmed with the history of the Celtic people who have visited this site for centuries. #gothiclife #gothgirl #gothlifestyle #celticmythology #celticfolklore #celticlife #celticlegends #pembrokeshire #wales #preselimountains #thevioletroseemporium

• W r e n • One of my favourite birds, the wren has a fair amount of folklore surrounding it. Despite being one of the UK's most common birds it is still considered King, a title thought to have come from two places. The first being the Latin for little king, Regulus and the second being the British fable that tells the tale of how the wren became king through cunning, guile and hitching a lift on an eagle. This busy little bird is thought to represent life, energy, intelligence and hard work, and is celebrated in many cultures from the Celts of the British Isles to the Zulus of South Africa.

The wreck of the Pasages again off Jurby Head. Last time I was here in TT week it was surrounded by sand. There was no sign of the mysterious island that appears and disappears off Jurby or the causeway of rocks to it called Lag ny Vakillya - shame, I quite fancied a day trip. #pasages #jurby #jurbybeach #manxfolklore #shipwrecks #celticfolklore #ellanvannin #gaelg #iom #iom #isleofman_insta #islandlife #loveisleofman #mybiosphere #visitiom #visitbritain #visitisleofman
My willow has come to life and is the most gorgeous green against the bluest of spring skies. I have always loved these trees. They are sacred to the Druids. The willow is a Moon tree sacred to the Goddess. Its grooves were considered so magickal that priests, priestesses and artisans sat among the trees to gain eloquence, inspiration, skills, and prophecies. #willow #sacredtree #moongoddess #druids #druidry #druidsofinstagram #celticwitch #greenwitch #wiccanwitch #gardenwitch #celtic #celticfolklore #irishsacredtree #priestess #moontree #wiccans #witches #pagans #wiccansofinstagram #witchesofinstagram #wiccanways #witchythings #naturewitch #mothergaia #motherearth #mothernature
Today’s preview painting captures love, emotion and romance between a beautiful princess ‘Grainne’ and her lover ‘Diarmuid’💚 This painting ‘Diarmuid and Grainne’ by KT McCaffrey is inspired from tales of Irish Folklore and Mythology. At the heart of this tale, is a love triangle between a warrior named ‘Fionn mac Cumhaill’ and the two lovers Diarmuid and Grainne. ‘Grainne’ was the daughter of ‘Cormac mac Airt’, an ancient High King of Ireland. She was supposed to marry ‘Fionn mac Cumhaill’, a mythical hunter-warrior of Irish mythology. Grainne had no feelings for Fionn as he was much older than her. She dismissed Fionn and fell in love with Diarmuid, a demigod and a member of the Fianna in the Fenian Cycle from Irish mythology. This beautiful and passionate oil painting will be revealed in full in the coming weeks. Stay tuned to KT Artists and follow us @kt.artists to join us on a journey of Irish art and Celtic tales from Irish Folklore☘️ #love #instalove #romance #romanticart #couple #cute #diarmuidandgrainne #irishfolklore #folklore #celticfolklore #celticart #irishtales #irishmythology #celtictales #irishart #irishpainting #originalart #ireland #dublin #dublinart #irishartist #irishartists #ktmccaffrey #ktartists #art #artwork #painting #characters #passionforart #storyart

• My current WIP is very much inspired by Celtic/Irish/Scottish folklore and mythology so I’ve been able to discover a lot of new things about one of my favorite creatures: the selkie. • So what’s a selkie? They are mythical creatures that have the ability to shed seal-like skins and appear human on land. They have hauntingly beautiful voices that are meant to soothe not attract unlike sirens. If a man can successfully steal a selkie’s skin and keep it from her she will be forced to be loyal to him but will run back to the sea if she ever finds her skin as that is where they belong. Male selkies are known to cause storms that wreck ships as revenge against seal hunters. They say humans born with webbed toes or fingers are kin to selkies! • One of my main POV’s in IDW is part selkie and part siren. She has the conflicting inner battle between the darkness of her siren side and the kindness of her selkie side. Though she often finds herself listening to her wicked siren song. 🌊
Puca/Bucca is known for its ability to shape shift, it can take on the appearance of animals such as a sleek horse, a ghostly dog, a twisted horned goat, a dark hare and many more which were always black in colour. It could also take on a human or goblin form but would often have animal features such as a tail or ears, it is noted to also have the power of human speech. 👅🌫 #folklore #bucca #puca #cornishfolklore #seaspirit #witchcraft #fairy #hobgoblin #goblin #naturespirit #celticfolklore
This artwork by Irish artist KT McCaffrey depicts a scene of Saint Patrick on the Hill of Slane after the lighting of the pascal fire. Saint Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. His birth name is Maewyn Succat, he changed his name to Patrick after becoming a priest. He brought Christianity to the people of Ireland. Saint Patrick’s Day is a national day of celebration in Ireland, held on the 17th of March. Ireland hosts parades through the streets, dancing and music. We offer a ‘Cead Mile Failte’ for the many visitors returning home for this special occasion. There are many legendary tales involving Saint Patrick. One of these tales involves the lighting of the pascal fire on top of the Hill of Slane. During ancient times, the Spring Equinox began by lighting a huge fire on top of the Hill of Tara. The High King Laoire declared that no other fires would be lit before this one. In defiance of the High King Laoire, Saint Patrick lit a paschal fire on the hill of Slane in County Meath. The fire from the Hill of Slane was visible from the Hill of Tara. King Laoire was impressed by Saint Patrick’s devotion, so he allowed him to continue his missionary work in Ireland. The Hill of Slane remained a center of learning and religion for many centuries after Saint Patrick with a friary church and college. The ruins of the friary church and college remain on top of the Hill of Slane. #irishart #ireland #irishculture #irishfolklore #folklore #saintpatrick #stpatrick #dublin #dublinart #celtic #celticart #celticfolklore #art #painting #irishpainting #artwork #illustration #oilpainting #ktmccaffrey #ktartists #fineart #fineartpainting #vibrant #vivid #colourful #wallart #slane #meath #hilloftara

I’ve been playing around with this for a while now trying different things, I repainted it, added frosty white fur, re shaped it and even looked at added two moveable front legs. All of which seemed to take the traditional look away from it so I took it back to its original colours and form,settling with white tatters. So here it is all finished. Puca/Bucca is of Celtic folklore and mythology. It comes under several names, the Old English word was Puca, Irish púca and Welsh pwca, all of which are thought to be related or may be compared to the Cornish Bucca. Bucca’s spirit is said to be housed in the form of a hobgoblin that inhabits mountains, quays, hills, forests and tin mines. Puca/Bucca is known for its ability to shape shift, it can take on the appearance of animals such as a sleek horse, a ghostly dog, a twisted horned goat, a dark hare and many more which were always black in colour. It could also take on a human or goblin form but would often have animal features such as a tail or ears, it is noted to also have the power of human speech. # Bucca is considered to be the bringer both of good and bad fortune either helping or hindering rural and marine communities. Bucca comes in two forms, Bucca Gwidden - a good, white magic/spirit associated with fair weather, healing, life, nourishing rain, the full moon and the summer months, generally helpful to farmers and fishermen, unless it was not properly appeased in which case it would plague them by becoming the second form, Bucca Dhu. An evil black magic/spirit associated with stormy weather, night, death, the new moon, autumn and winter months who is also known as Bucka boo. This is my version of the Bucca/Puca caught between shape shifts. Imagine, if you will, the spirt frozen as it shifts through forms trying to work out what apparition to take on. It stands, semi-ram, semi-human, semi goat, semi-hare, and semi-horse whilst being split between Bucca Gwidden, a good sprit, healer, bringer of fine weather and life, and Bucca Dhu, an evil spirt, mischievous, bringer of storms and death. #folklore #bucca #puca #cornishfolklore #seaspirit #witchcraft #fairy #hobgoblin #goblin #naturespirit #celticfolklore
