Wooden plaque of Coat of Arms of Magdalen College, Oxford,
Where family scholars studied under the auspices of Magdalen as spiritual teacher.
The continuation of this takes place in the Old Mill House,
Which houses lectures, exhibitions and events of various kinds.
Shrine of Sagittarius:
Presided over by The Morrigan, Queen of All Rivers at Full Flow,
All Springs & Wells, She is the Virgin Source – the Baive.
Her husband is The Dagda Mor, Chief of the Danaans
She is also An Cailleach, the Widow, She Who Weeps.
Where Her Daughter, a tributary, joins her,
A Goddess Centre is traditionally established.
The Castle is on the Banks of the River Derry (‘Daire’)
which is a tributary of the ‘River of Healing’- the Slaney (‘Slainte’).
The FOI as a Daughter of the Goddess has established the ‘New Awakening’
And dedicated it as the Druid Clan of Dana,
Based in the Druid Grove in the Wilderness in the grounds of the Castle.
Presided over by Child Figure of Bride to the left.
The notice on the wall represents the
All-Seeing Eye of the Deities, Angels & Star Children,

On the Wall below is:
The Goddess Tara Who Presides over
The Noble Order of Tara
In Her FOI Priory in The Old Abbey in the Castle grounds,
And is represented here by a plaque
Dedicated to Her Service to all Nature
On the Main North-East Wall:
Painting of Brigid Na Mara of the Atlantic Ocean.
She Presides over the New Atlantis, the Americas & the British Isles.
She has a statue of Atlanta outside the Temple
We also have Her on the banks of The Derry, (‘Daire’) ‘River of Swans.’
The Water of Heaven descends upon the Earth
And sinks down into the Underworld with Persephone & other Goddesses,
And then springs forth, drawn up by the Sun,
Becomes cloud and descending returns to Earth as Rain.
Ireland is cradled by the Atlantic Ocean
and all rivers ultimately flow back to Her
Brigid Na Mara
“We all come from the Goddess, and to Her we shall return,
Like a drop of rain, flowing to the Ocean.”
(As always, our thanks to Olivia and Minette!)
