dc.description.abstract This paper explores the traditions and history surrounding the Irish oenach. The oenach was a provincial assembly, which began in the pagan Celtic past of Ireland and continued in some areas until modern times. The mythological symbols behind the oenach will be discussed and analyzed in terms of their social, political, and ritual functions. This paper will also look at the geographical distribution and archaeological significance of the meeting sites and seek to set a date for the oenachs' beginnings. Mythology, folklore, and old Irish literature will be used to come to an understanding of the themes and beliefs behind this Irish tradition.
