Lora has been consciously following a pagan path for over 25 years, and dedicated specifically to the Irish Goddess Mórrígan in 2004. She managed one of Ireland's most important sacred sites - Cruachán/Rathcroghan - for a decade, and is a co-founder and legal celebrant with Pagan Life Rites Ireland. With her partner, Jon O'Sullivan, she is the co-founder of the Irish Pagan School.
"The time, effort, professionalism, let alone the in-depth research and resourcefulness that Lora O'Brien provides within the classes, lectures, workshops, and general offerings is top notch and superior to most claiming to be teaching in such fields today - genuine, authentic and native material from an equally genuine, authentic, native provider/facilitator."
