Hello there!
My name is Boann, aged 35 and wife of Dagda and mother of 3 lovely little monsters aged 5, 3 and 8 months. At the moment we are staying in the Netherlands for work, but next year we will be moving back home permanently to Ireland.
I have been involved with Gardnerian Wicca for almost 20 years, and also an active member of the Pagan Federation International. Currently I am one of the pub moot organisers in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Since Dagda is Irish and a life long student of Celtic Civilisation (including a degree in the subject), our path has led us to become more actively involved in the Celtic Reconstructionism area. That is the main reason for also joining OBOD and seeing how our brother and sister Druids are walking their path!
Slainte,
Boann.
Hello Boann! :hiya: Welcome to the OBOD message board. Make yourself at home and if you have any questions just ask. :D

Bright Blessings - Michael

Good morning :hiya: ! My name's Svenja, I am approaching 30 this year and I am a native German. I have migrated to the UK some years ago, and now live in the North East region of this beautiful island. I have been following the Old Ways for the best of 15 years now. I have dug my nose into many traditions but have not yet found a way that satisfies me completely. However, I have always felt that the tradition of druidism is the closest to me - so now I hope I have found my home in this tradition. Prove me wrong :wink:
I hope to find interesting and deep conversations here as well as hillarious silliness and chitty-chat :)

See you later!

Bin ich, und soweit ich weiss, Alchemilla auch. Hast du dich im deutschen Forum angemeldet? Das ist auch fuer uns Exilanten offen...

Es ist schon erstaunlich, dass es uns alle so weit in den Norden verschlagen hat :huh:

Hello!

I'm Etain (well, not legally, but I may well change that!), I'm 25 and Mother to 2 lovely little girls and married to the love of my life for 4 years. I've recently (very recently!) joined OBOD after being a very generic pagan since I was 15. Druidry attracted me as soon as I found out a bit about it, I am only just getting enough time to myself to do anything about it though! I'm a full-time Mama and am training to become a lactation consultant with La Leche League. I'm an obsessive reader, knitter, sewer...anything that can be quickly put down that can satisfy me creatively!
