HISTORY AND VISION

The first volume of the Journal of Ogam Studies was published in 2003, to include the research of Fr. Stoirm. This research was later integrated into the book The Poets Ogam: A Living Magical Tradition by the same author. The original vision was to create a space where ogam research, both academic and as a living system could be presented side by side, as well as artistic renderings of the ogam. We would like to create a space for inspiration, dialogue and cross pollination. We published a 2nd issue in April 2016 and would like to continue with this project by releasing a 3rd at the Summer Solstice (late June) 2017.
