Because of Brexit, all companies which only operate ATMs inside the EU have now replaced the UK’s Union Jack with the Irish tricolour for the English language option.

Yonic Symbolism and Imbolg
Tumblr media
A friend of mine Róisín is after informing me that the Brigids Cross is a actually a yonic symbol.
Many of the old crosses were diamonds and didn’t have as many of the long arms.
The same shape found in the entrance stone of newgrange used to represent fertility and birth.
Tumblr media
There was a phallic stone found at newgrange as well.
Tumblr media
Brigids day is when the animals start giving birth,
There is also a tradition called “Brigids Bed” where people make a nest of rushes and straw in case Brigid needs a bed. And women would also give birth into the Brigids Bed. Because women would give birth on all fours, so they’d but that under them and the baby would land on it.
The Gaeilge saying for “as long as I can remember” directly translates to “since my head hit the straw”.
Tumblr media
The word “bolg” in imbolc is a reference to to a womens belly and pregnancy.
A lot of female historians suggest that Síle na Gig was a guide to women on the correct way to give birth because the mortality rate in birth was high and modern contraception didn’t exist back then.

someone has already posted this but buffy was definitely the funniest example of american tv using irish as a magical language for spells and the occult. mostly because this passage was very obviously copied and pasted from an article about a new bus lane

I love my English lectures but one thing that genuinely upsets me is seeing how many works of Irish literature are claimed as or assumed to be “British literature”. Like Bram Stoker, Oscar Wilde and Seamus Heaney weren’t British artists...they were Irish. Why does Britain get to take credit for Irish pieces???
