Magic, Spells & Charms

Magic and incantation played a very big part in the daily life of the ancient peoples of Ireland.  Much of these charms and spells were still being used by the people of the west of Ireland up to the mid twentieth century when they were finally dying out, along with the use of the Irish language.  (There has been a revival of interest in the Irish language today and the number of fluent speakers is growing once more.)

Folklorists and Chroniclers of the nineteenth century such as Sir William Wilde and Lady 'Speranza' Wilde, Lady Gregory and William Butler Yeats gathered much of the information compiled here.  Much of this lore would have been lost forever if it were not for their efforts.

These charms are based on very ancient Irish Pagan charms, although many have been christianised, the essential power of the charms is still extant.
