Code of the Wolf
My truth is in my eyes
Protect the family, honour the Elders, educate the young
Loyal to friends
Express your opinion
Stand your ground
Lead when necessary, follow when required
Play when you can, work when you must
Invisible to enemies, open to friends
In the Middle Ages, Ireland was known to outsiders as "Wolfland" because the wolf still roamed free in the forests that covered the country. This magnificent, but much-maligned animal, was still alive here having been wiped out in neighbouring countries.
The last reliable evidence of wolves in Ireland was in 1786, around the same time when onslaughts were being made on Irish culture, language and a way of life was being destroyed.
The Wolf is the Shamanic Totem Animal for this site.
PLEASE select your language from the list above to read general information about this site in that language.
The main aim of this site is to provide reliable and authentic information about Irish Druidry and Shamanism. Transcripts of manuscripts will be provided in modern Irish. As Irish is a living language with a world-wide appeal to a broad audience, I shall also provide versions of the old tales and legends in a style suitable for use in story-telling.
