about

This is a blog exploring topics of Irish interest.  A celebration of culture and heritage and an enquiry to their wider repercussions and resonances.

‘head afire’ is a term that signifies to be in the moment of inspiration; it is the fire in the head of wandering Angeus, impassioned by his mystical participation. It is the cast-spell of  Amergin and the spell cast upon him by the place of Ériu, Banba and Fódla. It is the creativity and expression of the Irish mind as made manifest by the Irish soul. So if there is fever and fervour within – you have been warned.
