As the acorns ripened and fell to the ground, the last of the nettles produced seed and the Cailleach took up her blackthorn staff, the dream of “Airmid’s Journal” was borne.
The Airmid Journal is intended to be an ever-growing tapestry of stories, woven together with the plants of this land. Old stories, new stories, personal tales, and present spells.
Here we share the voices of those who tend to the wild wells, offering nourishment to all those who wish to drink from the source.
10% of all profits from this first issue will go towards the Traveller Counselling Service; a community-based and culturally appropriate counselling service for the Traveller community.
Since Airmid’s Journal was released in July 2021, over 2000 copies have been sold and over €600 has been raised for the Traveller Counselling Service.
