Mysterious Altars For Revenge.

Ms Maura Barrett, (Cashel Library) Reports:-

Cashel Library’s resident ‘Witch’, Maura, will gives an illustrated talk on Cursing Stones In Ireland, on Tuesday, October 31st, 2023, beginning at 7:00pm sharp.

Also called a ‘bullaun’ (Irish: bullán; meaning a”bowl”, local folklore often attaches religious or magical significance to these same cursing stones, such as the belief that the rainwater collecting in their hollow also had healing properties.

Ritual use of some stones continued well into the Christian era and many are found in association with early churches. These stones supposedly had ‘cures’ but more importantly they also had the ability to place a curse on individuals.
If you wanted to put a curse on someone, you turned the stones anti-clockwise in the morning, however, the curse had to be unprejudiced and equitable, otherwise your curse would come back to curse you later that evening.

This is one FREE and worthwhile event, which should not be missed.

Note: Refreshments will be served, thus booking is essential for attendance at this FREE event; by Telephoning 062 63825.
