Lora is an Author, Teacher, and Guide: native born Irish, with 20+ years personal and professional experience in our history, heritage, archaeology, mythology, and pre-christian Irish Spirituality. Publications include - Irish Witchcraft from an Irish Witch, 2004; A Practical Guide to Irish Spirituality, 2013; Tales of Old Ireland - Retold, 2018; A Practical Guide to Pagan Priesthood, Llewellyn 2019; Irish Witchcraft - 2nd Edition, 2020; the Irish Queen Medb, 2020; and a forthcoming work on the Fairy Faith in Ireland, 2021.
She is a modern Draoí – a practitioner and priest of indigenous Irish magic and spirituality, in the simplest terms. 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.
"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."
