Local gathering
Im wondering if anyone would be interested in something a little more f2f and regular than posting here or on email lists. With my second child on the way I'm becoming more and more interested in being part of a wider community and online stuff just doesn't cut it.

Traffic on this board seems a bit slow so anyone who is interested, please feel to write me at fir_a_bhata@yahoo.com

language lessons
Hi all...

Leaving aside the Rosetta Stone software I'm more or less working with, I'm wondering if any of you know of good language tutors in the Chicago area.

Chicago parade - Save Tara contingent
Chicago's Irish Freedom Committee is inviting all those who want to protest the destruction of Tara to march with them in Saturday's Downtown Chicago St. Patrick's Day parade.

More Info

If I were in the city for this, I'd make an exception to my usual avoidance of the parade. Go Chicago Celts!

What's everybody doing this summer?
So, anyone planning on attending any Irish festivals, Highland games, Ren faires or Pagan gatherings this summer? What's the Celtic scene like in Chicagoland these days?

Announce any events you're attending on this board and find other CRs to connect with. I don't have plans to be in the Midwest this summer, myself, but I know there are others in IL who are looking to connect with people. So speak up and help each other out, OK?

Ren. Faire
It's been quite a while since the last post, so I thought I would pipe up and say hello. My family is attending the faire this weekend, mostly to go to Thistle Croft to see other methods of spinning. Is anyone else going to be attending this season? We're local- about a ten minute drive so we'll be out there most weekends, toddler in tow.

Has anyone been to the Cotswold Renaissance Faire in Lake Geneva?
We're going to venture out on Sunday and are hoping it's worth the 45 minute drive.

De/ithe dhibh,

So, if anyone wants to meet up feel free to <A href="mailto:thoth@hotmail.com>e-mail me</A> and we can either set something up or trade cell phone numbers or whatever. sla/n -jeffrey

meeting up
Hi there,

So it looks like we will definately be at Ren Faire this coming Saturday; we should be there for opening. I'm open to suggestions for meeting up.

Also, are any of us still planning on going to the Chicago Celtic Fest next month (around the 18th I believe)?

Lughnasadh Blessings
That which we have nurtured
is coming to fruition
time to begin the harvest
time to reap our rewards

May our lives be as that seed
nurtured with our love
our hearts and spirits growing
the Mother reaping Her rewards.

In Her loving service --

Just checking in
Is everyone still ok and no one's melted into a puddle of goo? I just thought I'd check since there hasn't been much, ok, no activity over here for a little while.

Ren. Faire has begun. Argh. We lost five people over the weekend due to the heat. They'll be fine and back up this weekend. Geez, it's not THAT hot yet. Wait until this weekend. They'll be dropping like flies. I say this not with glee, but experience. There have been days when I was one of the brave, insane few still standing.

On the Celtic note....I've been enjoying the Tain (Kinsella) and tying up my tongue on all those wonderful Irish names. I'm glad I took a semester of Gaelic some years ago.

Don't melt!

Dia Dhuit!

I'm a long-time Celtic pagan (not sure yet if I truly qualify as CR) originally from the suburbs but currently going to school in Urbana. I'm studying Irish (Cois Fhairrge dialect) in my free time, and am formally a history student with a minor in French. I hope to go to grad school for Celtic Lit/Lang or Medieval Irish History.

Not sure what else to say, considering I am the 2nd member of this community. So, hi!

Welcome all! Cead mille failte!
