A look at the widespread fear of the butter stealing witch in Ireland.
The talk will focus on the very real fear people had of these women,
especially at liminal times of the year and the methods used to prevent
and deter them . It will also look at the methods of sympathetic magic
employed to steal the butter profit. Butter and dairy were a big part of
the diet, as well as the household economy, so measures had to be taken
to prevent this from happening.

"I have been diving into the online conference, as I couldn't attend live, and I have been just blown away. Totally. Like never before. The presenters and the material have been just extraordinary. But it is so much more. This conference has so opened my eyes to something so so profound... how alive, contemporary and evolving Irish paganism is. I know that this is no surprise to you, but as a solitary, wandering soul in exile in a far away land it has been incredibly exciting. Thank you so much for putting this together and sharing your world with us."
