Dr. Jenny Butler.


Our Honorary  E Granddaughter to whom we gave that accolade several years ago has recently achieved a dizzy status and can now be referred to as Doctor Jenny Butler Ph.d however, to us she will still be known as HEG, the E standing for 'educated' of course, though at other times it might also stand for evil :) ! We are immensely proud of Jenny and send her through this medium our congratulations on a study well done. 





I have watched the video many times and do declare that during the x amount of years knowing her, her youthfulness has rubbed off on me and today I look much younger than on the video.

    1. Well actually No.
      Jenny's Ph.d is in Folklore and Ethnography (The Study of Neo Paganism in Ireland)

      She didn't get a Ph.D for casting spells :)

  5. Thanks all for the nice comments and to Mel, of course, for the congratulatory Blog :)

    Mel and Jane have been a huge support to me over the years and have helped me in so many ways with my research, so big hugs to them both! :)

    Just to clarify - the presentation here was in the context of a "Doctoral Showcase" competition, in which we had 10 minutes to give an overview of our research. That's why I couldn't properly explain anything! My YouTube channel has an interview about my research, which is more in-depth and I'll be uploading some things relating to my next research project on fairy folklore there too.

      Thank you for saying such nice things about us xxx

      I am looking forward in viewing your video on Faery Folk Lore as am certain it will be of great interest to a lot of people.

  7. Oh well done! And what a fascinating study! I would have loved to have heard more about her findings. Congratulations Dr Butler!! She made it all very interesting and much more appealing than a normal PhD defence.

    1. Thanks for saying so, Val! Our Viva Voce examination (thesis defence) in Ireland is not public, which I know it is in some countries. The YouTube video is a recording of a competition between PhD students across the university. There was an initial stage, semi-finals and finals. I got to the finals but I didn't win. In fact, I didn't realise we were being recorded during our presentations! It's nice, though, to have a video that provides a summary of my research - more interesting than reading about it!
