Lambs Wool

Lambswool! MMMmmm... After you feast on traditional Irish foods on Halloween you'll need to wash it down with this drink. The name is believed to be derivative of the Irish Gaelic, “La Mas Nbhal” meaning ‘Feast of the Apples. The Gaelic saying was pronounced “Lammas-ool”. This ultimately evolved into Lambswool. The drink basically consists of baked crushed apples (cored and crushed without skins), which are added to milk, and hot spiced ale, hard cider and or wine.

Ogham Stone. Ogham is an Early Medieval alphabet used primarily to write the Old Irish language, and the Brythonic language.[3] Ogham is sometimes called the "Celtic Tree Alphabet", based on a high medieval Bríatharogam tradition ascribing names of trees to the individual letters. There are roughly 400 surviving ogham inscriptions on stone monuments throughout Ireland and western Britain; the bulk of them are in the south of Ireland, in Counties Kerry, Cork and Waterford.
