New articles

A quick note on some new articles I've just put up on Tairis:

Making a dealbh Bride - Some ideas on making an icon of Bride in time for Là Fhèill Brìghde, with pictures. Hopefully I'll update it soon enough when I make this year's icon.

The Dadga in Myth, History and Pseudo-history
Part One
Part Two
Part Three

This was originally a dissertation, and the version I've published here is a slight reworking I did in preparation for publication in a journal. Sadly it was never published, seeing as the journal never managed to publish another issue, so I thought I'd put it out into cyberspace myself.

As I've noted on each page there's a lot I'd change in it now, nearly ten years on, but given a lack of resources that's not a job I can do properly just now. Maybe one day. It's by no means definitive either - there was a pretty strict word limit I had to stick to, so there was a lot that didn't get as much attention as it needed.

So err...enjoy.
