Jon O'Sullivan

Jon O'Sullivan (An Scéalaí Beag) is an Irish tour guide, author, and storyteller dedicated to the tales of his patron deity, the Dagda, chief of the Tuatha Dé Danann. Co-founder of the Irish Pagan School with his partner Lora O'Brien, Jon shares his knowledge and stories through multiple platforms. He regularly posts on the Irish Pagan School blog, YouTube channel, TikTok, and Patreon, where followers get to ask him questions and gain early access to his video responses. Living with his family in County Waterford, Ireland, Jon continues to weave words that connect hearts and minds to Ireland's rich lore and traditions.

Having little to no knowledge of the Irish pantheon of male deities, I felt that I stepped into a wonderful level of intimate experience and cultural background in a matter of a few paragraphs. From the warm and personable start to the mapping of the mythos landscape then to the examples of interlinking the Dagda to my own life journey, this is a rewarding turn down my own "path less taken." Thanks much!

Do I need to have Irish ancestry to study here?
No, absolutely not. We provide authentic connection to Ireland, with native or naturalised Irish teachers, for anyone who wishes to learn from us and is willing to put in the time and effort to do this properly... rather than grab a culturally appropriated quick fix.

Loved receiving this class from Jon! His approachable manner makes the lecture portion easy to take in and understand, and the content, including the resources he points learners to, will keep on giving. I'm queer and transmasculine, and so it's really important for me to learn about deities in the Irish tradition who present us with alternative models of masculinity. Thank you Jon and the IPS for bringing us this class!
