Lady Olivia Robertson and the Fellowship of Isis


Lady Olivia Robertson and her brother Lawrence of the Fellowship of Isis

Lady Olivia Robertson of Huntington Castle in Clonegal, County Carlow, Ireland, died earlier this month aged 96. She was one of the founders of a group called the Fellowship of Isis – an organisation devoted to the worship of the divine feminine.

The dungeons of the castle were transformed into a large ‘temple’ filled with shrines, statues and small rooms dedicated to various forms of the divine goddess. It also had a holy well.

I visited the castle just a few times. The last time I was there I recorded a short interview with Lady Olivia. Part of this interview is included in the very first section of this short programme which was broadcast on Newstalk in 2008. The second half of this piece is at Dzogchen Beara Buddhist retreat centre in west Cork.

Her obituary was published in the Telegraph today.
