Hi, everyone! I want to apologize for being late (again). Unfortunately some things have come up in my life that mean The Gaelic Roundtable needs to take a short break; I simply don’t have the time to dedicate to it like I need to in order to keep everything running smoothly. For that, I apologize. Sometimes, though, life happens and I hope y’all will understand.
We’ll be back with a new prompt on July 1st. Until then, please feel free to submit responses to any topic we’ve created so far (that means that old topics are now open to those who wanted to participate but ultimately missed the topic deadlines)- or respond to any posts from other users which really caught your eye- and we’ll pick up where we left off when we get back!
If you are an Irish Polytheist, please consider participating in The Gaelic Roundtable… And don’t forget to follow us on WordPress or Tumblr, and subscribe to our Newsletter in order to receive regular updates; if you have any suggestions for improvements or increased accessibility- or you have questions, need resources, or anything else- you can always contact us at email@example.com or leave us an Ask on our Tumblr… And if you like what we do, please consider donating, too!

To Worship is to show reverence and adoration through the performance of various religious rites. For most people, this is done for Divine figures. For others, those they worship might not be Divine, but are often still supernatural. Some may even worship living (or, more correctly, once living) beings- like Ancestors or Heroes.

With our Newsletter officially launching in two days, we thought it was imperative that we talk about the “Featured” section that will be included within it each month. Undoubtedly, features like this are bound to make certain participants feel that their response submissions were inferior and promote an unnecessary sense of competition among participants.

As our introductory topic, we wanted to give our participants a chance to introduce themselves to other community members participating alongside them.
