The Book, entitled “Ancient Irish Trees – a reflective journey through the year” takes us on a journey through the life cycle of thirteen native Irish trees, each tree being depicted in spring, summer, autumn and winter. This book is one of reflection and allows space for readers to record their own thoughts and reflections. Every season contains an Early Christian poem and will be of huge interest to anyone interested in Irish folklore or learning more about it.

We would like to record our gratitude for Alexandra’s kindness in funding the entire project ensuring that 100% of the proceeds to directly to each charity.
