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

2003-04-02 [Aristotle]: O.o Started reading, but there are so many names, so many things. I can't possibly keep all that in my mind. I'm so confused. I'll try again tomorrow. What is important among all this?

2003-04-02 [Lavilia]: everything duh :p

2003-04-02 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: I know it is long, but I cut it off as soon as I could. Take your time. What is important depends on what aspect you are looking at it from and for what purpose.

2003-04-02 [Mirime]: Edana, what are your sources? I might be able to use them for my project.

2003-04-02 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: I knew I forgot something, duh, coming right up.

2003-04-02 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Mir Suggested discussing it when everyone is done, what do you guys think?

2003-04-02 [Mirime]: I am done lesson one!

2003-04-03 [Lavilia]: Are you okay with me using this for my website?

2003-04-04 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: I'm fine with it as long as you quote the source since it isn't quite my words. Copyright stuff, you know.

2003-04-04 [Lavilia]: what are your sources (I always quote sources, was already planning to ask you)

2003-04-04 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: It is at the end of the the story.

2003-04-04 [Lavilia]: sorry me kinda blind sometimes. First have to get another acount, because my space is almost gone

2003-04-04 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: your space?

2003-04-04 [Lavilia]: mb's

2003-04-04 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: ok

2003-04-04 [Lavilia]: I am done btw. (have made a new acount. If you want to see my website

2003-04-04 [Mirime]: Oh, thanks Edana... didn't notice that at first either...

2003-04-06 [Lavilia]: pretty okay!

2003-04-08 [Buile Shuibhne]: Liking this.

2003-04-08 [Mirime]: Yah, fun isn't it? Hey you found it , Oisín mac Cumail! Moylley dhyt!

2003-04-08 [Lavilia]: I also love the story, why aren't there gonna be more student being able to join in?

2003-04-08 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: It'll be too confusing if people keep joining, and alot of the myths relate to one another.

2003-04-08 [Lavilia]: I get it

2003-04-08 [Aristotle]: Doesn't really matter if you're a student or not, does it? I mean, all the myths will be up here, right? So if you're interested, you can just go read it anyway.

2003-04-08 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: That is true.

2003-04-09 [Buile Shuibhne]: I was wondering how the telling of the myths would go anyway, seeing as Celtic (or in this case, Irish) myths aren't self-contained like, say, Greek. Pretty much have to start at the beginning and not stop speaking for weeks. :)

2003-04-09 [Buile Shuibhne]: And: eeek! We must not skim over the deaths of the sons of Tuirenn - seeing as it's one of the Three Sorrows. Or will they be covered as a group later on? Am I just butting in? Ochóne, a mhúinteoir.

2003-04-09 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: I'm not familiar with that one myself but I shall look it up. I never said I was the most knowledgable scholar Oisin, feel free to"butt in" anytime you feel, I won't be offended I promise.

2003-04-09 [Buile Shuibhne]: Go raibh míle mhaith agat! Will do!

2003-04-10 [Alberic]: how about an appendix on pronunciation? This Celtic stuff is hardly ever written as it is spoken

2003-04-10 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: I personally have a Scottish one, I will ask my friends that have Irish and Welsh if they can type them out for me.

2003-04-10 [Mirime]: I have a Gaelic (Irish and Scottish) one, and a small bit of Welsh!

2003-04-11 [Alberic]: well, the vowel pronunciation isn't hard, but certain vowels and many consonants seem to be omitted, what about that?

2003-04-11 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Coming, I'm getting them bits at a time.   I'll be gone over the weekend, I'll see you guys when I get back.

2003-04-15 [Buile Shuibhne]: Sorry it took me so long to get the consonants posted...been offline a few days. I'll try to get dipthongs and such up later, but that'll work until we get into the other Celtic languages (i.e. Old Irish, Scottish, Manx, Welsh, Cornish, Breton).

2003-04-15 [Mirime]: does anyone want my bit or not?

2003-04-15 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Thanks Oisin.     Sure, Mir, what is your input?

2003-04-15 [Mirime]: hmm yes I have to find it.....

2003-04-26 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Does anyone know if Lokko, Dreamer, Miz or Bart, are going to do this lesson? I would like to carry on.

2003-04-26 [Alberic]: oh, sorry, I'm done, forgot to say that

2003-04-26 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Thanks

2003-05-04 [Mithrael]: O, I will not have time to get any Welsh pronunciation up for a while.... sorry... maybe I'll wait till you get to history concerning the Welsh...

2003-05-04 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Ok, thanks, Mir.

2003-05-05 [warrlokk]: Sorry for being so slow, I'm done now, and ready for the next lesson

2003-05-13 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: OK, I will get the new lesson up soon, so keep your eyes open.

2003-05-22 [Furo]: If any of you have ever read the Deverry books by Katharine Kerr, then you'll obviously know how to pronounce all of these words, and use them in conjunction with other words, as well. I'm done, O Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós.

2003-05-22 [Furo]: Also, speaking freely, you have a few spelling and grammatical errors in your lesson. Just thought I'd let you know...

2003-05-22 [Mirime]: speaking as the grammar queen here.... obviously, but that's not the point of these lessons. If I haven't complained you should be able to live.

2003-05-22 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: lol, and I never said I was a grammar and spelling major, did I?

2003-05-22 [Mirime]: Nope :)

2003-08-08 [Aristotle]: I'm signing off this class. I'm moving, and I won't have access to the net except in school, so I don't have time for this. Sorry...

2003-08-09 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Ok Ok, I'm working on something, bad me, I've been preoccupied

2003-08-09 [Lavilia]: I have to sign out too. I am really busy and I forget to check the new things (changes)

2003-08-09 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: ok bye

2003-08-09 [Lavilia]: Maybe I will watch in sometimes though

2003-08-09 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: ok

2004-03-26 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: I'm sorry school has kept me very busy, and will for a little bit, probably, I will try to get something put together.

2004-03-26 [Mirime]: nice :)

2004-03-26 [Domna Rose]: How do I join this class?

2004-03-27 [Mirime]: just click 'edit the page' and put your name at the bottom of the list of students :) write 'done' when you've read the lesson

2004-03-27 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: don't worry, you've got a little bit of time to read it

2004-03-28 [Domna Rose]: done

2004-04-15 [Lokasenna]: beautiful. . .

2004-04-15 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: what is?

2004-04-21 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Welcome Scooz

2004-04-23 [Lokasenna]: Do you have anything on The Voyage Of Bran Mac Febal?

2004-04-23 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: probably if I looked, is that a request?

2004-04-23 [Mirime]: I have the original somewhere :P

2004-04-23 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: oh thanks.  and Celtic Languages is officially part of the language area of the academy, if anyone would like to help, please let me know

2004-04-23 [Lokasenna]: I really need some info about The voyage Of Bran for a project so yeah I am requesting it.

2004-04-23 [Mirime]: you should read the original version. hm. I wonder if I could find the site again. one moment...

2004-04-23 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: ok

2004-04-23 [Mirime]: hey, I have the file still, I'll email to you, Edana.

2004-04-23 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: ok thanks

2004-04-24 [Scooz]: Sorry I didn't reply Lady Edana as soon as I joined...I had to leave for a week. But thanx for the welcome, and hullos everyone else.

2004-04-25 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: That is fine, I understand that some people can't live on here, I really shouldn't

2004-04-26 [Scooz]: I have a quesion about this website I reference most of my Celtic mythology from. Can you check it out (not everything if you don't want to) and tell me if it is a good source cuz some ppl have pointed out things about it saying it is not accurate as a source.

2004-04-26 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: checking, I'll also check with the Celtic Guild on TORC and see if any of them know

2004-04-26 [Scooz]: OK thank you

2004-04-27 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: no problem

2004-04-27 [Lokasenna]: How can you become a student? Please don't yell at me if you think I am stupid. I am some what new. I am really in to Celtic myths and legends.

2004-04-27 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Just click edit and add your name

2004-04-28 [Scooz]: Trust me Shadowing, I am still pretty new to everything...I still can't get avatars to appear on my profile.

2004-04-28 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: avatars?  So far it seems the website is an ok one, Scooz, but I would always get acouple sources for myths and legends and things like that, because everyone has their own version on it, they were passed by word of mouth, especially in Celtic society where writing was forbidden, so they were constantly changing

2004-04-29 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Thanks, Mir.

2004-04-29 [Mirime]: Welcome :)

2004-04-29 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: I hope the new changes are liked.

2004-04-29 [Lokasenna]: Thank you.

2004-04-29 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Your welcome, there is an exported version of this page, I will get exported versions of all connected pages too.

2004-04-30 [Scooz]: Thanx very much Lady Edana for checking that out for me. And the avatars are the little icon you get when you join one of those clubs or lists like the Anne Rice fan club.

2004-04-30 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: do you mean the banners?

2004-04-30 [Scooz]: Yea those thing-a-ma-bobers I call them avatars.

2004-04-30 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: on here they are banners. go to Memorium Banners and hit edit, and you can look at how they are put up. it is "img:url" inside <>

2004-04-30 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Oh Everyone, The fires are about to be lit on Beltane Anniversary if you guys want to join the celebration!

2004-05-16 [Zero X]: I would help you, if I could. I type really fast.

2004-05-16 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: I've got the books, but between school and the fact that if I try to type it out while I'm on the internet I'll get stuck in one or the other, I haven't gotten much done

2004-05-17 [Zero X]: Blah, whenever you have enough type, just type it up somewhere, send it to my house or email me, and I'll type it up wherever you want it.

2004-05-17 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: thanks

2004-05-17 [Zero X]: No problem.

2004-05-17 [Shade Wolf]: I'm not snoring babe.

2004-05-20 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: I know

2004-05-20 [Lokasenna]: is possible that you could post something about Emer?

2004-05-20 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: I'll keep it in mind, hopefully I can get something up soon, but now that finals are over I'm packing :P *looks up* why me?

2004-05-21 [Mirime]: Emer.... sounds familiar... yep... I've got a link for that somewhere!

2004-05-21 [Shade Wolf]: *kisses Edana* Having second thoughts?

2004-05-21 [Mirime]: for what? why're you packing?

2004-05-21 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Second not really, just wondering why I get myself so involved in things when I hardly have time for the basics of life.  I'm moving to Stanley, Id, for a job.

2004-05-21 [Mirime]: Oh, nice, is that where the interview led to or is this something else?

2004-05-21 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: Yep that is where the interview led to, I got the job

2004-05-22 [Orey]: [Aristotle] He said I should have a look around here. Well then I have not missed anything!

2004-05-22 [Lady Edana-Arianrhod Rós]: not much, I've changed things a little bit, made it more oganized, but that is about it

2004-05-22 [Orey]: Oh thats cool! You need any hlep just ask me.
