I LOVE history and mystical details and this book REALLY delivers on the Celtic side of my roots in Ireland. I know that I’m a bit of a mutt with my accentral DNA, but I believe that’s what makes me who I am and allows me to relate to so many people and cultures. This book really brought home, not pun intended, my familial Bhoy roots.

If you’re looking to connect with your roots, or even just learn more about Celtic mystics and history, this is a great book for you as well.

This is a magnificent book to take a journey into the mystical world and gain historical knowledge of Ireland. The author does an amazing job of tying the historical aspects that chapped a country with the mythical aspects and ties them to how someone can make the journey in real life. This book is wonderful if you are wanting learn about the Celts or travelling to Ireland to experience a land full of mysticism. Great read!!!

This book is remarkable for its scope and actual usage by solitary learners. Ireland and its beauty is finally given its importance in relation to its Diety worship . I cant say enough about the fact that reading this book is like a chance to dip into what our ancestors knew or experienced! The Goddesses are the focus which made it simpler for me to focus on the land and the sacred spirit of the Island of Ireland, History is given which finally helped me to understand what the invasions meant and when they were as far as we can date reliably. This book is not easy to describe. You have to actually read it and do the work to see the awesome contribution Jeremy Schewe has given to Celtic lore and practical work.

I found this book intriguing. I have been very interested in all things Celtic. Most books I have read have bits and pieces of history, mythology, and folklore. This book has it all in one place and references to go with it. It’s a great read if you want the history of Ireland. I was surprised by some things I read as I had never heard them before.

I definitely recommend this book!

This is a gorgeous book! Filled with information about the history and mythology of Ireland, reading it was like taking a magical journey. The author possesses a writing style that make one feel like they could be sitting by the fire on a winter's night, listening to tales of old as well as tales of the recent past. I love that his connection to Ireland is physical as well; sometimes people write about the country but they haven't been there themselves. His love for her is evident. I particularly enjoyed the stories regarding Brigid, as she is someone I revere in her goddess form and the author gives a thorough and interesting account of her various guises and what makes her special and relatable to so many. I would definitely recommend this book.

Aisling by Jeremy Schewe is a treasure! The book is chock full of historical information of all things Ireland. Aisling covers historical battles, myths, and legends. It has maps, and an impressive bibliography with suggested reading, glossary, as well as pronunciation of different Irish dialects (yes there are more than one). This would be a great gift for lovers of the Emerald Isle.
