Orla O'Shannahan, Award of Arms

Orla dances like the river in the sun
She lightens the burdens of others
And gives the hungry to eat
Her hands flow with gold and silver

Orla o’Shannahan has served in many ways
We note her assistance in the kitchen
The banners and pewter feast tokens
She produced for Winter War, and
Her enthusiasm for dance

For these reasons do We
King Quilliam and Queen Dagmar
Give unto Orla O’Shannahan
An Award of Arms
And all rights and privileges thereto
She will henceforth be known
As Lady Orla O’Shannahan

Done this 7th day of May
Anno Societatis 45
At Lady Mary 23
In Our Barony of Rising Waters

Wording, calligraphy and illumination by THL Asa Gormsdottir

Cross carpet and incipit designs based on the Book of Durrow, 7th C. insular ms.
