Mary Reynolds – Reformed Landscape Designer and Nature Activist from County Wexford

I am so delighted to have Mary Reynolds on the podcast today. Mary is quite an extraordinary person. She’s a garden designer, a philosopher – a writer. She is the youngest woman to win a Gold Medal for garden design at the Chelsea Flower Show – since its inception over 100 years ago.

Fairies that I heard about growing up were good… and there was never any worry about a fairy causing mischief or harm.
 
But in the pre-Christian Celtic countries, the concept of fairies was different.  These beings were feared because they could curse you or bring you bad luck. You didn’t mess with the fairies.  You didn’t disturb their domain or their rath. You stayed away from fairy hills or forts. You didn’t cut down the lone hawthorn bush because it might be a fairy tree – a fairy domain. Continue reading “008 Fairy Worlds, Forts, Raths and the Fairy Knowe at Doon Hill”
