An important native tree, Ash is the most common tree in Irish hedgerows. It is sometimes called the “Venus of the Woods” due to its attractive shape and beautiful foliage.
Ash was thought to have power over water and was often planted near sacred springs, known as Clootie wells, which were places of pilgrimage for the Celts.
Light, tough and flexible, Ash is commonly used to make furniture, walking sticks and hurleys for the Irish sport of hurling. Historically, it was also used to build boats and Irish emigrants to America often took pieces of Ash with them for protection against the sea.
