The sets shown in the photographs have sold but the Ballymote Ogham Dice sets are crafted from time to time. If you're interested in purchasing a set, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out about availability and timescale. A fifth die with the Forfeda symbols can also be added for an extra cost.
These wonderful ogham dice are crafted in a similar way to the staves mentioned in the Irish myth of Tochmarc Étaíne. In the story, a druid named Dalan takes four "wands" of yew and carves the ogham symbols upon them so that he may use them for divination.
Perfect for popping in your pocket, these Ballymote ogham dice are carved from yew wood which was carefully and respectfully gathered from close to the ancient, sacred site of Stonehenge in southern Britain. They are pentagonal in shape with the five symbols of an aicme inscribed onto the spines. The four dice can be cast and the uppermost ogham symbol read.
We work and play in the ancient Celtic heartlands of Britain where the Durotriges and Atrebates tribes ruled in prehistory. Our Ballymote Ogham Dice are handcrafted ritual tools with real Celtic soul, something with real spirit and as each set is individually made, no two are ever the same.
