Winter Solstice at Charleville

Celtic Awakening bring to you one of the best and most enchanting nights in the Celtic calendar, when dark and light come together in the winter solstice.

Charleville Castle will be alight thanks to the full moon. With the Celtic drummers, a night of fire and shamens with Mary Edwards connecting with spirit, working in the energies of healing and meditation. Charleville will host the most magical and mystical of the Celtic Calendar events of the year.

Touching roots with our ancient ancestors as you drive up the avenue of one of the most sacred oak druid forests in Europe. A very symbolic night. Tuesday the 21st of December at 7:30pm
is one not to be missed.

Refreshments will be given on the night and all you are required to bring is a pendulum.

Tickets are priced at €30 per person and can be booked via www.redmoonevents.org

Online payment is preferred and is accepted by Credit/Debit Card or via Paypal account.

Alternatively, payment can also be made at the door on the evening of each event. Please email info@redmoonevents.org detailing the number of individuals in your party and the name of each person.
Look forward to seeing you there!

A clock raffled to raise funds

Long-standing Volunteer Monica Daly who lives at the Castle Gate Lodge generously donated a hand made slate clock from Heartworks as part of a fundraising raffle in aid of Operation Lift.

She raised €100 towards the project, and one lucky winner by the name of Marian walked away with it!  Many thanks for your creative and fun approach to fundraising.

Have a look at the Heartworks website for more clocks and other incrediable designs made from slate.

Thanks again to Monica and Maurico!

FUNDRAISERS

Paranormal investigation groups ‘The Paranormal Research Association of Ireland’ (PRAOFI) and ‘Irish Paranormal Investigation Crew’ (IPIC) team together to raise an extra €1,000 worth of funds for Operation Lift

Many thanks go to Traze Shallow of PRAI, Maura and Garrett of IPIC, and all involved as they conducted 2 extra Paranormal Investigation nights – February 20th and 27th in aid of Operation Lift, bringing in over €1,000 extra needed funds which was used for the essential Safe Pass training expenses for the volunteer site workers. More investigations are scheduled to happen out of their ordinary yearly schedule which is going to make a huge difference in the financial sustainability of the project. WELL DONE!

Gillian Murphy conducts special tour Sunday 28th of February raising €300 for Operation Lift

This money helped elevate the total funds raised that weekend and she wowed her guests with her psychic know-how and familiarity with Charleville Castle, giving special attention to the special energy surrounding the castle and its strength in the middle of the tower rooms on the mezzanine floor. We’re looking forward to the next tour! Thanks a million Gillian!

The Burren College of Art and their International Students Raise €600 through an overnight photographic excursion Saturday, March 6th, 2010

As many are aware, Charleville Castle is beautiful to photograph because of its picturesque setting as well as its stunning Neo-Gothic interior and exterior design. Many photography groups have produced amazing shots from the castle that are mostly posted on Flickr. Martina Cleary graciously offered to bring her students for an overnight experience at the castle. All camped out in the lounge keeping warm by the fire, as they all periodically ventured throughout the many rooms and aspects of the castle to explore their creativity. We can’t wait to see the finished products. Thanks again Martina and your students, for appreciating the unique beauty and design of one of Francis Johnston’s architectural masterpieces.

The money that Martina and her students from The Burren College of Art raised is going directly towards incurred site expenses which enables the workers to hire necessary equipment to de-construct the massive parts of the buildings such as the roof and side panels.

Some of the students have started putting up their photos on their own websites, http://www.briannigus.com/ireland/?p=2848 is one of the first we’ve seen online.
