Online Course on the Native Trees of Ireland - with Irish Draoí Lora O'Brien

Fadó Fadó... Long ago in Ireland, it was said a squirrel could travel from Cork to Killarney without touching the ground - treetop to treetop.

"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."
