He drinks a lot of tea and he doesn't know how to work a tv remote. He is terrified of his phone ringing. He lives in his homeland of north Co. Cork.  Paul is also a celebrant and his other passions in life include Toastmasters and 5Rhythms

 


Eimear

Eimear Burke is a practicing Druid and works both as a Psychologist and a Celebrant. As a Druid she is the Chosen Chief of OBOD (The Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids). 

With her late husband, Howard Campbell, she founded the Kilkenny Druid Grove, which is based at their home in 3 Castles in Kilkenny.  Their Grove hosts celebrations for all eight festivals in the Wheel of the Year.  The ceremonies are attended by Druids and Pagans of all paths, as well as by people from all sections of their local community.  Their aim was to promote Druidry as a creative way of living in balance with the natural world.

​Her work as a celebrant means that she creates and facilitates rites of passage for people, marking all the important events in life from baby-namings to funerals.  She particularly enjoys performing handfastings, and is licensed to carry out legal marriages in the Republic of Ireland. As a Priestess of The Fellowship of Isis, she works to honour the Goddess and the Divine Feminine in all her forms. As a storyteller, she takes a particular pride in continuing the oral tradition of Irish folklore, and focus on Irish mythology.
