So, to begin with - Ogham.
I have been interested in Ogham for a while now, and even more so since our trip to Ireland late last year.

For those who don't know, Ogham is an ancient celtic alphabet that was used in Ireland and Britain. Many of it's symbols also correspond to different trees. I won't go into a full description (as i'm still learning about it myself) but there is plenty of information on the web about Ogham and it's origins.
So, why am i blogging about Ogham if there is already so much info out there?? That's just how my brain works....if i write about it, it sticks in my head...so we all get to learn together!!
Here is what the Ogham alphabet looks like:
My next posts will start looking at the letters one by one, their meanings and the trees associated with them.
