Celtic Life & Heritage Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public benefit corporation whose purpose is to preserve the Irish Celtic heritage for the benefit of Americans of Irish descent; and for all others who are interested in amazing stories, rich history, and would love to experience the goodness of an Irish Blessing.

The Foundation celebrates and preserves Irish Celtic heritage primarily through themed education modules (available for public, private, and home schools) along with short media vignettes, and most recently the Irish card game Seanchaí.

"Interesting, informational, a story that will keep your attention. I felt like I knew the characters.   I think my friends would like this book, especially if it was something we could have read in school instead of boring books. Teachers don’t always make geography fun, and this book did."

Four children wake up one morning to find themselves back in time and in another country:  Ireland.  In order for the magic to transport them home, they must embark on an epic journey.  With the help of the Wolfhound and Irish faeries, the four friends discover the magic of Ireland and within themselves.

Through Time & Magic makes learning about the science aspects of Ireland fun.  Follow four fifth grade friends as they discover the different types of rocks, geography, flora and fauna of Ireland.  

100% of proceeds go towards preserving  Irish culture and heritage.

"Game is Excellent! Seanchai is a really unique experience, fast game play, deep layers, and has a very high replay value."
