Proverbs of the Moment
Gaelic Proverbs come primarily from the western Highlands and Islands of Scotland, and they have a distinctly rural or agricultural flavor which reflects
the society from which they were gathered. It is to be expected that many of them pertain to the weather, to the planting of crops, and to country life
in general. Others reflect the Gaelic love of company and hospitality, fear of poverty and laziness.
Faodar an t-òr fhéin a cheannach tuille is daor.
Gold itself may be too dearly bought.
Few countries have a greater number of proverbs than has Scotland. Even today, everyday speech in Scotland is
sprinkled with them. Scots are wonderfully given to this way of speaking, and the lovely Scots tongue loses much
of its flavor when forced to translate their unqiue language. Those that appear in English have been preserved
that way for at least 200 years!
He wha lives on hope will die fasting.

2015 Celtic Radio Album of the Year
Our 2015 winners of the Album of the Year - Get Up Jack - can be seen here holding their glass crystal Celtic Radio Music Award while on tour in Ireland. They brought the award on tour through Ireland. Get Up Jack recorded their award winning album last St. Patrick's Day. Some of the musicians in the group are in the 5th decade of playing Celtic music professionally. They decided to make this CD as a tribute to those great singers who came before them and brought this wonderful Irish Folk music to the U.S. Specifically the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem. They wish to carry on their tradition, spirit and enthusiasm on their CD.
Thank you Get Up Jack for sending us this great picture and congrats to them on their Celtic Radio album of the year!

The Celtic Zodiac
The Hawthorn, 5/13 - 6/9
Read more about your Celtic Zodiac sign!
The Hawthorn was a symbol of psychic protection due to its sharp thorns. It was also generally seen as a tree which brought good luck to the owner and prosperity to the land upon which it stood. It belongs to the trilogy of sacred Irish trees (the other two being the Oak and the Ash). Faery spirits were believed to dwell in Hawthorn hedges, which were planted as protective shrubs around fields, houses and churchyards. The Hawthorn was once thought to offer psychic protection to the traveler. The twigs would frequently be used as a curative for depression and the powdered seeds used to cure gallstones. Often used for walking sticks and to make fires, the Hawthorn also formed the Maypole around which the Celts would dance at Beltrane...the onset of Summer. The Hawthorn was associated with both the sacred and the unlucky (some holding the belief that it was from the Hawthorn that the crown of thorns used at the Crucifixion of Christ was made, for example). To destroy this tree was to incur great peril to the individual who was responsble for such an act. The Hawthorn was embodied in the character of the chief giant Yspaddaden in a Welsh romance of Kulhwch and Olwen. As a guardian figure who attempts to protect the virginity of Olwen, he is felled and the blooms of Summer soon open. Thus, the Hawthorn symbolized the advance of Summer and the defeat of Winter. In ancient times, young girls would rise at dawn in order to bathe in dew gathered from Hawthorn flowers, thus ensuring their beauty for the coming year. The blossoms, especially the white variety, were also used to decora........ more
