Who can you trust for recommended resources? Knowing what’s going to help you and what’s going to hinder you as you walk a path to Irish spiritual connection is an essential skillset, and it will develop naturally over time. 

The more you learn, the more you will know 🤷‍♀️ obviously enough!

It’s important to get the basics right first though, so we’re here to help with that (please save the info in this recommended resources blog post for future reference!).

First off, recognising the bad sources:

How can you tell a ‘good’ source from a ‘bad’ source? How do you stop contributing to or supporting cultural appropriation? Lora O’Brien of the Irish Pagan School goes through some general pointers to watch out for when looking for quality material on Irish and Celtic Pagan topics, as well as providing some solid recommendations for Celtic History (including Druids), Irish Mythology, The Sidhe (Irish Fairies), Ogham, and The Mórrígan.
