The Oak tree has been with us a long time, weaved into our native natural history. ‘Dair’ or ‘Daur’ in old Irish, is the seventh letter of the Ogham alphabet, meaning ‘Oak’ as gaeilge. They were part of the ‘Airig Fedo’ - ‘Nobles of the Woods’ in the early Brehon laws, due to their perceived economic worth, with the law stating their important position due to ‘its acorns and dignity’.
Drawn on location during a sunny few days in September, this oak stands in Marlay park. Covering 300 acres the estate was originally landscaped in the 18th century when it was privately owned. Many years later these trees have flourished as part of a beautiful woodland, providing respite from the city and a place for us to reconnect with our nature and wildlife.
