The first HerbFeast took place in May 2012. The event was organised by the Community of Irish Herbalists which included several members of the IRH. Over 100 herbalists from across the many herbal traditions gathered at the Organic Centre in Co Leitrim to participate in talks, debates, demonstrations, herb walks and even a herbal table quiz. Speakers included Sean Boylan, Rosari Kingston, Judith Hoad and Peter Conway. For more information on the CIH visit

IRH Response: This is a positive article which shows that making change in your life need not be a tough and hard road to travel. It also shows that Herbalists are ordinary people that come from all walks of life and society. Neil is now living and practicing in Croatia.
