Terri Conroy at Kilgraney House & Herb Gardens 3 p.m. & 5.30 p.m.

  • Healing Herbs in Ancient Ireland – the traditional spiritual and practical use of herbs in our ancient past and how these traditions can be revived for every day health.

    This talk explores the healing modalities of our ancient and recent past, here in Ireland and considers some vital questions. How did our ancestors deal with sickness and injury? What was the belief system around sickness? What was their philosophy of the cause and cure of disease? What was their relationship with the plant world? Is our indigenous medicine still available to us? Can we use our indigenous plants today for medicine and if so – how? If so – why?

    These are some of the questions that will be addressed in this talk before moving on to look at some of the plants that were and are used in herbal or plant medicine.

    Ireland is an island country on the far western edge of the European continent which was invaded several times. The people of Ireland today are descended from these invaders. It is this Gaelic/Celtic family whose healing modalities, philosophies and view of the cosmos that Terri Conroy presents in this talk. Terri refers to several modalities of healing covering plants then and now, dealing with the core question of plant medicine usage.
