Bealtaine - Grianstad an
Bealtaine is the cross quarter day between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice, an important mid way point in the Earth's journey around the Sun. To our Ancestors, Bealtaine was a celestial announcement of Summer and even though light and temperatures will increase significantly later, this was the time to bring cattele from indoor housing to the fields, or from lower pastures to higher. Traditionally two fires were built through which to drive the animals and the people followed. Fires that cleansed, fires that fed fertility and fires that celebrated the Sun's rise. That is where Bealtaine comes from, tine meaning 'fire', Bal the 'Sun God'. It was said that all Bealtaine fires in Ireland were lit when the first on the Hill of Uisneach, the sacred centre of the island, was seen. This Bealtaine just past, once again we, along with a great number of keepers of tradition were present and in ceremony at the great Fire Ceremony on UIsneach (on unday, May 5th).
