The furze,gorse or whin with its golden yellow blossoms is an indication of fertile land. Hedges made of furze are dense and provide shelter for livestock. Furze features in many Irish customs, for example, on May Day in many areas furze blossom was placed over the door for luck and to ' bring in the summer'

Today 1st May is the first day of summer in the Celtic Calendar. It is the time of the Celtic Festival of Bealtaine, an important festival in the Celtic year. Traditionally flowers, in particular yellow ones were gathered and placed on the doors and windows of the home and farm buildings for protection.

I recently visited Navan Fort outside Armagh city. It is the ancient seat of Kings and the earliest capital of Ulster. We had the opportunity to visit a replica Iron Age dwelling of a Celtic family and learn about the homes and daily activities of the Celts. A living history experience!
