Celtic Mythology Classroom

The harp that once through Tara's halls
The soul of music shed,
Now hangs as mute on Tara's walls
As if that soul were fled.
So leeps the pride of former days,
So glory;s thrill is o'er,
And hearts that once heat high with praise,
Now feel that pulse no more.

No more to chiefs and ladie bright
The harp of Tara swells,
The chord alone that breaks at night,
Its tale of ruin tells.
Thus Freedom now so seldom wakes,
The only throb she gives
Is when some heart indignant breaks
To show that she still lives.

-Thomas Moore

2004-09-16 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: I found a book with some Gaelic Proverbs, but it doesn't say which branch of the language is used, would any of you be interested in it?

2004-09-17 [Irishpixie]: i think that sounds really interesting!

2004-09-19 [birdsong]: I Love Proverbs!

2004-09-21 [Lokasenna]: Gaelic Proverbs? I never heard of those.

2004-09-21 [Mirime]: .......and you have a Gaelic name?

2004-09-21 [SilverFire]: :\ just because someone has a Gaelic name doesn't mean that they *should* have heard any Gaelic proverbs :/ 

2004-09-21 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Ok, creating the Gaelic Proverbs, If you have any requests for a subject, I will see if I can find some for it.

2004-09-21 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: It is in the links, rather then the classrooms, cuz I think it isn't really mythology. and I gotta get a druid classroom too.... EEEEEEEEk

2004-09-21 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Welcome, to the new people

2004-09-21 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Ok, well I have to get off now, so I'm gonna go work on some lessons, unfortunately what I already had on my comp got wiped, so I gotta redo some of them. see ya!

2004-09-29 [Lokasenna]: I'm sorry I never heard of the Gaelic Proverbs. I focused on the Myths and songs.

2004-09-30 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: I hadn't either, but I found these and some are pretty cool

2004-10-02 [Lokasenna]: I read some and they are awsome. Thank you.

2004-10-02 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: No prob. I will get some more up in a bit. Gotta go to work now though.

2004-10-10 [Lokasenna]: I was listening to some of my music and I listened to a song called Si Morag by the Tannas and I want to know who is Morag and why did she have a famous wedding.

2004-10-10 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Morag? hhmmm... the famous wedding I know about is Riahanonn(sp), But I'm going to the library on Monday before work, I will look it up.

2004-10-10 [Lokasenna]: There is also a song that is called Si Donal and evidently he married a Morag and some famous warrior was there.

2004-10-10 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: ok, thanks, that will help me know what I'm searching for

2004-10-10 [Lokasenna]: I can give you the song if you want.

2004-10-10 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: thanks

2004-10-10 [Lokasenna]: I'll message it to you.

2004-10-10 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: k thanks

2004-10-10 [Lokasenna]: No, Thank You.

2004-10-30 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Welcome, Arira

2004-10-30 [Lokasenna]: Welcome new person.

2004-11-16 [Woton]: Can I join?

2004-11-16 [Mirime]: sure, just sign up and start reading the lessons!

2004-11-17 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Welcome Van, I'm afraid I haven't gotten anything new up in a while

2004-11-25 [Lokasenna]: Did you ever find out who Morag and Donal were?

2004-11-26 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: no i haven't, but I'm still looking

2004-11-26 [Mirime]: They're related to Brian Boru somehow, I think

2004-11-30 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: ok

2004-12-03 [Lokasenna]: I'm searching the lyrics for anymore clues.

2004-12-04 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: ok, thanks

2004-12-11 [Lokasenna]: Evidently the warrior McAuley was there. who is McAuley??!

2004-12-14 [Morrigan the Raven]: It's possible that it's just a song with no basis. I googled Donal and Morag, and warrior MacAuley, and all I came up with was that song or random stuff...nothing having to do with mythology. Also, when I looked up those names for historical/mythological connections, nothing came up. Not saying that it isn't there, but it could be extrememly difficult to find.

2004-12-15 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: That may be it

2004-12-23 [Lokasenna]: Or they could have been some Lord and Lady.

2005-03-06 [Opened my veins for nothing]: could i be a student? please?

2005-03-06 [Mirime]: yes, of course, just add your name to the bottom of the list and start reading :)

2005-03-07 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: *sighs* I'm so behind. I keep thinking I'll have time then I don't. or I have time but I can't get online.

2005-03-07 [Mirime]: it's ok *huggles* I'm here to help :)

2005-03-08 [Lokasenna]: i HAVN'T BEEN here in a while.

2005-03-09 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: *sighs* thanks, Mir.  Yeah, none of us have. Maybe after I move out, now that I've got the second job, I will be able to.

2005-03-09 [Lokasenna]: WILLKOMMEN!

2005-03-10 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: huh?

2005-03-10 [Mirime]: "kommen" is "come" in German

2005-03-10 [Lokasenna]: Willkommen means Welcome.

2005-03-10 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Oookkkay, I don't know German.

2005-03-15 [Lokasenna]: Randomness because I have the soundtrack of Cabaret stuck in my head. Damn it!

2005-03-17 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Sorry, I can sing "It's a small world" if you want?

2005-03-17 [Lokasenna]: Arg! The Horror!

2005-03-18 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: I'll take that as a no

2005-03-23 [Lokasenna]: Bad memories. *sudder*

2005-03-23 [Lokasenna]: Bad memories. *shudder*

2005-03-24 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: I'll take your word for it

2005-04-29 [Fenian]: I am new at celtic mithology but i would love to learn about it.The thing is that i don`t even know the basics.

2005-04-29 [Mirime]: hmm, well, myths and legends is a good place to start :) also some histroy, perhaps.

2005-04-29 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: yes, it is very good to know what is history, what is legend, and what is based off history. Arthur... based off history. Finn and the Fianna, probably what it was originally taken from, part history embelished by legend.

2005-04-29 [Mirime]: yes :) and also how history influences legends and stories

2005-04-29 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Yep.... too bad it just takes me so long to get anything down in a lesson :P

2005-04-29 [Mirime]: Maybe this summer I'll have time to help out-- I could ask scribe too, and just submit his things for him

2005-04-30 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: That would be good. I miss him on here. I don't know if my summer will be any easier... I might be planning a wedding... ~.~ oops, don't say anything. why can't they just agree to elope?

2005-04-30 [Mirime]: so do I... why can't who just elope?

2005-05-02 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Promise not to tell? *whispers*

2005-05-03 [Mirime]: ooooooh (I check messages before wikis, thus the confusion)

2005-05-03 [Lokasenna]: Hello. Planning a wedding eh.

2005-05-03 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Oh ok... silly.  Me? Not right now

2005-05-04 [Mirime]: could I tell scribe, if he asks?

2005-05-06 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: He knows, I talked to him in IM the other day

2005-05-06 [Mirime]: ok (: never mind, then.

2005-05-12 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: yeah, he was excited

2005-06-03 [Fenian]: So how does the Celtic mithology explains the creation of the human race or the creation of the world?

2005-06-03 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Celtic Creation Working on gathering some of the different mythos.

2005-06-07 [Lokasenna]: Ah!

2005-06-10 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: like it?

2005-06-13 [Morrigan the Raven]: It looks good, Lady E. :)

2005-06-13 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Thanks

2005-06-14 [Lokasenna]: If you need help I can help.

2005-06-15 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: If you find a story just let me know, or you can put it up yourself.

2005-06-15 [Lokasenna]: Oh I know a lot of stories. 8th grade project.......damn bastards, never really writing anything down.......

2005-06-17 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: LOL yeah I know, it's hard, you can find sveral versions of a story, sometimes even different endings!

2005-06-17 [Lokasenna]: I know! Like the legend of Osian! you have the "

2005-06-17 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: the what?

2005-06-20 [Lokasenna]: shit! It cut me off!

2005-06-20 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: that sux

2005-06-21 [Lokasenna]: but anyway, you have the drugged out hippie version,, the christian version, the new age mystic version and the orginal version that one one wrote down.

2005-06-22 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: LOL yep, sounds about right

2005-07-29 [Lokasenna]: It does get anoying after a while.

2005-07-31 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: I bet

2006-06-25 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Hi

2006-06-25 [Connie (Original, no?)]: hello

2006-06-25 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: It's nice to see someone stopping in. I'm afraid I haven't had much time to add. But Please feel free to stick around from what is up and if I get some to to get more up.

2006-06-25 [Connie (Original, no?)]: thanks a lot, I love celtic mythology, one of my friends is an actual celt. Well, decendant of etc, so I'd love to understand more about her culture

2006-06-25 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Yeah, it's a very interesting culture. For recommended reading: "Who Are The Celts" (may have been 'were', I unfortunately don't have the book anymore *grr*)

2006-06-25 [Connie (Original, no?)]: Thanks :)

2006-06-25 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: No Prob. It's a very good book. But unforunately if I ever get it again I don't think I'll be loaning it out...

2006-06-25 [Connie (Original, no?)]: lol

2006-06-25 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Sad thing was it was a teacher at college. Left notes and messages and she never got back to me.

2006-06-25 [Connie (Original, no?)]: that was nice of her

2006-06-25 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: yeah... she had been my fav teacher

2006-06-25 [Connie (Original, no?)]: obviously she's not anymore XD]

2006-06-25 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Nope

2006-06-25 [Connie (Original, no?)]: hahaha lol

2006-06-26 [Mirime]: Actually, I believe I have that book (it's Who Were the Celts)

2006-06-26 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: It's a good book. I want to get it again.

2006-06-26 [Mirime]: if you're near any barnes and noble bookstores, that's where I got mine

2006-06-27 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Yeah... I just have to actually get over there... Need to get food too...

2006-06-27 [Mirime]: mmm, food is good... did I tell you about my job yet?

2006-06-28 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: no, where? 

2006-06-29 [Mirime]: I'm working at this organic farmstand, about 20 minutes away. It's pretty fun, or at least interesting and not mindless, and I get to bring home free food ;)

2006-07-02 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Ooo free food.... always a plus!

2006-07-02 [Mirime]: Yeah, it makes it all worth it... I still can't wait for the actual store building to be finished though, because then we'll have air conditioning xD

2006-07-02 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Ooo  How hot does it get there?

2006-07-02 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: I updated and finished creating the Banner Contest! It's Officially Open!

2006-07-20 [Melocrie]: Can I add my name as a student?

2006-07-21 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: yeah go right ahead.

2006-07-21 [Melocrie]: Great, thanks!

2006-07-23 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: YW!

2007-09-29 [Dumnorix]: I say, is anyone interested in the continental (gallic) celts here? There are quite a few legends hailing from this side of the channel...

2007-10-02 [Melocrie]: *waves* I am! I'm more interested in the continental celts than the atlantic ones, actually..

2007-10-31 [Lokasenna]: pfft! Mainland celts. Ha! its all about us Irish-celtic peoples who don't actually live there, but claim ties.

2007-10-31 [Melocrie]: "pfft!" indeed :P
