Celtic Werewolves

The Clan Allta Werewolves of County Meath


In the 6th Century a saint became very annoyed with a certain clan in County Meath, Ireland.

The reasons for his annoyance are lost but the curse was this: two by two, each member of Clan Allta must take the form of a wolf for seven years. After seven years if they survived in the wild, then they could regain their human form but two more members of the clan must take their place in the wild.

Descendants of the original Clan Allta born during the cursed years inherited this seven-year werewolf curse. Religious records show they searched hundreds of years for a cure. Many of them would even turn to Catholicism for help.

In 12th Century, one priest tried to cure them by giving holy communion. Some people say that he may have been tricked into it by a very charming Clan Allta werewolf. At any rate, it didn’t work and the priest got into a lot of trouble but it did bind this werewolf and all his descendants to God and the Church for eternity.

As a result, some Clan Allta werewolves gain comfort and power from Catholicism while others still follow the old Celtic ways.

  1. There are many older packs than torc alta. For instance the Wild Hunt led by Hearne or the Hounds of the Otherworld led by Arrawn. Also there is a deep conection between the Druids and shapeshifters in fact most of them are wolves themselves. The oldest Vampires also come from the celtic myth the Children of the Morrigan, very big demon crows or humans with black wings, eyes, and claws. DO NOT under any circumstance try to deal with them.

  2.
