Oak - mug


10 June - 7 July

The most sacred tree in ancient Ireland, the Oak covers the period from June 10th – July 7th. The Oak, like the Ash was seen as a protector and was especially revered by the Druids. Indeed it is thought that the word Druid comes from the word for Oak, the Irish for this tree being Dair. According to legend there was an Oak in Co. Kildare which bore the fruit of several species, including apples and which became the inspiration for poets and bards. In this picture we see the Medieval Bard sitting beneath an Oak surrounded by the echoes of those who came many generations before him. The Ogham (ancient Irish writing) sign for the Oak is two horizontal lines on the left side of a stone.
