Draoícht na hÉireann… Irish Magic crosses the boundaries of time, tribes and even religion. Throughout the ages, from ancient to present times on this island, we have had a strong tradition of magical practice and practitioners.

14 weekly Lessons (over 3+ months) will give you a working knowledge of how our Irish ancestors viewed and used Magic, and how you can too - facilitated by Irish Draoí Lora O'Brien.

"Well, this is it. The Irish Magic Course. She did tell us that it would be intensive. No, I'm not done. One more lesson, a few exercises, and I'm behind on reading the research papers. Yes, it was completely worth it. The work is just beginning.

As I'm from Canada I will never have a truly Irish witchcraft practice. I'm too influenced by the land I live on. That's not a bad thing either. The spirits of the land I call home have a tremendous influence on how I practice my magic and my spirituality. And that's how it should be. I love the land of my ancestors and I love my Homeland.

Thank you, Lora O'Brien for the opportunity to learn the magic of my ancestral homeland."
