I am thrilled to announce the publication of my latest collection of poetry – written during and following my travels to Ireland 2009 – 2018.
Thirty-six new poems invite you to immerse yourself in the spirit of the land, the language, the people who have made my Celtic adventures memorable and inspiring—and with their goddess, Éire, who gave her name to the Emerald Isle.
My love of Ireland began as a child and has only grown stronger as I’ve spent time in this luminous place. In truth, my connection with Éire has deepened with each visit.
In publishing Sparks of Celtic Mystery, I am fulfilling a long-cherished dream of sharing my deep affection for Celtic culture with fellow travelers and with those who hold a fond place in their hearts for this ancient isle that invites life-changing exploration of both inner and outer landscapes.
May your life be blessed by the spirit of Éire,
Cheryl Lafferty Eckl

Cheryl Lafferty Eckl’s “Sparks of Celtic Mystery” is an awakening work, pure and simple. She has found her home in the ancient, powerful ideas of Celtic mythology, and has used it to inform her life and her journey. By reading these profound words, your journey, too, will be transformed. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is luminary.—Brandon Thompson, ecstatic poet & teacher, author of From the Back of a Thirsty Camel
