On assignment: Pagans in Northern Ireland

Sharon Neill, of the Order of the Golden River church, assists Patrick Carberry performing the ceremony of Bealtaine, the Celtic May Day festival that marks the beginning of Summer, at Ballynoe Stone Circle near Downpatrick, Northern Ireland.

Patrick Carberry has recently been officially recognised as the first Pagan priest in Northern Ireland after having his Order also recognised as a church.
