An Introduction to Rosc Poetry

The Rosc - Poetic Magic from our Druidic past, with Irish File Geraldine Moorkens Byrne

  Enroll in Course

Online Class which gives an introduction to the Old Irish form of Poetry called Rosc (a short poem, ode or chant), which is integral to Ireland's native Magic and Spiritual Practices - from a native Irish File (Poet), who will bring you on a journey through this Poetic Magic from our Druidic past.


We examine questions and cover topics such as:

  • -- An intro to Draiocht Ceoil (the magic of words and sound)
  • -- An examination of what a Rosc is, in poetic terms
  • -- The type of magic it was used for
  • -- Examples of the Rosc from Old Irish literature
  • -- Its use in Draiocht Ceoil and folk magic
  • -- The construction of a Rosc

This class includes some practical prompts, discussion, Q&A from the live session, and instructional 'homework' for you to construct your own Rosc poetry!


This teaching is suitable for beginners, as well as those with more experience in this area, or in other traditions. You do not have to be dedicated to or working with any Irish Gods, Guides, or Guardians to take this class.

You will get the unique perspective of a native Irish File who has studied Rosc Poetry directly, and is a published modern Irish poet and musician too. You can find more of Geraldine's work at https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/3016469.Geraldine_Moorkens_Byrne

"I thoroughly enjoyed this class! Having taken the Brehon Law class was helpful (but not necessary) in understanding how ROSC Poets fit into Irish society of the day, and expanded the overall picture of Irish history and tradition. It also helped in adding ways of deepening my own spiritual practice. LOVED it!"
