Historian and artist Shelly Mooney is back on the pod once again, this time to tell us all about the Autumn equinox.

Shelly lives in County Wexford with her husband Kev, their son Ferdia and Lola their dog and she runs the brilliant Instagram page ‘Tales from the Wood’ which explores the history and mythology of Ireland.

This year, the Autumn equinox will begin tomorrow, September 23rd, and will last until the winter solstice on the 21st of December.

And in this bite-sized episode she talks to us about the significance of the Autumn equinox, the Loughcrew cairns in county Meath, Newgrange and the powerful and ancient Irish goddess, An Chailleach.
