Two Bulls: the dark-haunched…

County Sligo, Carrowmore, Tuesday 26th July 2022…



Dark and dire,

mighty in muzzle,

long in horn;



narrow flanked,

beefy breasted;



his thick-maned neck

tough and strong;



his haughty,


cocked high;



ferocious his eye,

furiously glaring;



brutal and brave,

growling and snorting

big as a hill,

the bull of the earth…



Songs of the Stone


“To regain the Ulster Spoil,

Seek out the Nine Chief Culdees of Erin…

Then journey with them to the Ogham Stone of Fergus Mac Roy,

And there fast for three nights and three days.


If the question, given to each Culdee in turn,

during their fast, be spoken to the Stone of Fergus

as if to that mighty man himself…


Then, ‘The Spoil’, will be again revealed

in plain and perfect form

for the instruction of the ages.”
