Irish Author Lora O'Brien has been (consciously) practicing Paganism in Ireland since 1994, and working with the Irish Pagan Goddess Mórrígan since 2004. Professionally, she managed one of Ireland's most important sacred sites - Cruachán (Rathcroghan) - for a decade, and co-founded the Irish Pagan School (2017) and the Ogham Academy (2022). Lora is the author of seven books, contributor to many more, and is currently a candidate for a Masters Degree in Irish Regional History (SETU, 2023).

About Me.

There is a whole page for this here... but I just want you to know that it is my life's work to help you connect to the real heritage, culture and spirituality of Pagan Ireland in an authentic and meaningful way.

It's what I do every day, and I love that so many of you are doing this work with us here, and through the Irish Pagan School. GRMA!
