Celtic News July 2019

There is a great deal to include in this month’s Newsletter. We are beginning a new article on the History of Scotland’s forests. I have found this article absolutely fascinating, especially as it relates to a period of climate induced deforestation exacerbated by man’s impact. There is a good news story, though when we get to the third section.

There’s another new column this month – Let’s Go Dancing. So many of you are interested in attending ceilidhs that it seems like a good idea to let you know about them And I have a little more news about the Irish and Celtic Festival in Yass as well. So with no more ado………….

It’s all over for another year. The Australian Celtic Festival weekend is inspiring, celebratory, entertaining, educational and exhausting! Congratulations to everybody who worked so hard to make it a reality.

We finally got some rain which might have put a dampener on the whole thing, but somebody must have got the message about “don’t rain on my parade” and the rain stopped three minutes before kick-off on Saturday morning!

It always takes a while to get all the photos in to show you all. I have a couple to add into this month’s edition but you can look forward to the photo edition in June.

Celtic News April 2019

With less than a month to go until the Celtic Festival things are hotting up here in Glen Innes. Actually, that is only figuratively speaking. Right on cue, the evenings have turned quite cool in our normal autumn weather pattern. The days are stunningly beautiful, with high, clear blue skies and warm sunshine. Now, if we could just have a little rain………………

There is a special offer from the Australian Standing Stones Management Board, to celebrate the year of Scotland. You can read more about that later in the Newsletter.
