The Tuatha de Bhriain is a re-creation society founded in 1986 that attempts to re-enact the spirit and material culture of 5th century Ireland. While we are not officially associated with the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism), several of us are also members of that organization, and attend some SCA events.

A meeting was held at the "War of the Roses".
The War of the Roses took place in Mariaville, a small upstate, NY town near Schenectady at a private campground.
Everybody had arrived by 1am and had the camp set up by 3am. Otto set up his table, candles, and lanterns with the help of his two brothers Philip and Harold. Trelvis placed his sconce on the table and lit a kerosene fire that drove back the darkness. The sconce fire was not noticed by our neighbors who made several comments about the Clan Bhriain, Trelvis, and the three foot flames illuminating our site.
A group photo taken at the handfasting of Bragg and Eliana at Pennsic XLI (2012). A most joyous occassion for all, officiated by Christianna MacGraine, at which the voice of Katrina was heard from afar as if by magic, music by many musicians lightened the hearts, and a feast that will not soon be forgotten was enjoyed by all. Many members were, sadly, not in attendance at this event.
A sausage making at Guthrum and Finoulla's house will occur in the afternoon. Members should bring all tools and ingredients they need, Guthrum will bring casings. Guthrum will post a basic recipe to the email list (which will also be included here). Sabha will lead a cheese making and will provide a similar ingredients list.
Please coordinate with Guthrum and Finoulla so that you are expected.
