O is for Ogham

Ogham is an alphabet divided into four groups. (There is a fifth, but it was added later and I don’t use it.)

First:

  • ᚁ – Beith – Birch 
  • ᚂ – Luis – Rowan
  • ᚃ – Fearn – Alder
  • ᚄ – Saille – Willow
  • ᚅ – Nuinn – Ash

Second:

  • ᚆ – Huatha – Hawthorn
  • ᚇ – Duir – Oak
  • ᚈ – Tinne – Holly
  • ᚉ – Coll – Hazel
  • ᚊ – Quert – Apple

Third:

  • ᚋ – Muin – Vine
  • ᚌ – Gort – Ivy
  • ᚍ – Ngetal – Reed
  • ᚎ – Straif – Blackthorn
  • ᚏ – Ruis – Elder

Four:

  • ᚐ – Ailim – Fir/Pine
  • ᚑ – Ohn – Furze/Gorse
  • ᚒ – Ur – Heather
  • ᚓ – Eadha – Poplar/Aspen
  • ᚔ – Idho – Yew

These are the things I can mostly remember, and the associations I’ve learned through the Memrise course. I’ve also found this great resource which links the individual letters to tree associations, planets, genders and elements. I look forward to learning more about the alphabet as I go.
