The morning dew played an important part of Irish mythology and folklore and was thought to have rejuvenating and curative properties.

Records from our museum archives include numerous stories of bathing in the dew on particular sacred days and collection of this enchanted water for use throughout the year. 

For those working the land, morning dew was also an important signifier of the weather to follow and helped guide planting and harvest schedules.

Part of our From the Ground series of events, come celebrate this connection with nature through a guided, mindfulness walk of the Ulster Folk Museum at this special time of day, before it is open to the public.

Noeleen Fitzgerald, experienced mindfulness practitioner, will take us on a guided walk of the museum and lead us in grounding ourselves to the earth and connecting with our surrounding environment.
