In medieval Irish legends they were called Banduri or Bandorai. Their existence was confirmed by ancient Greek and Roman writers. But who were the legendary female Druids?

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.

    You know what’s funny? There was a show in the 1980s called Friday the 13th: The Series, and there was this one episode in the the third season that was all about a group of Druids. Naturally this was TV, so they got a lot of things wrong (e.g., they had the Druids feeding people to trees!). But it’s the only fictional treatment of the Druids I’ve ever seen where it was claimed that all Druids are women. That’s not true either, I know, but it’s still pretty interesting. If you have a taste for schlock like I do, you might dig it. But in any case, this post made me remember that crazy story.
