Irmandade Galician Druids

I received a notification about the a new Galician Druid organization that look like kindred folk.  The majority of their site is in Portuguese but they do have some English content as well.  From their website, they pay attention to historical accuracy and documented evidences, yet, adapt Druidism to the contemporary world and make it relevant to followers today.  Much like the Henge of Keltria attempts to do. Best wishes to our Celtic cousins in Galaica on their new public presence.

Irmandade Druídica Galaica

Welcome to the official site of the Pan-Galician Druidic Fellowship (IDG in the Galician acronym).

The IDG is a religious association formed by those who follow the path of the Galician Druidic tradition. The Fellowship offers shelter to Druidic believers, who can then observe the Celtic calendar in community in addition to celebrating Galician Druidic rituals. Furthermore, the Fellowship offers religious services, advice and rituals by request of the Clan.

The IDG shares the main principles of Druidry elsewhere, but focuses on the own Galician tradition and Celtic legacy. There is, in fact, a continuity in the religious beliefs, folklore and Galician character that can be traced back to the times of the old Pan-Galician Celtic civilisation. In this way, the IDG pays paramount attention to historical accuracy and documented evidences, following the scientific criteria of the Galician Institute for Celtic Studies. Nonetheless, IDG’s view of Druidry adapts to the contemporary world in order to avoid anachronisms and make it relevant to followers today.
