After finishing a degree in social anthropology and French, Belfast-born Lucy O’Hagan followed her passion for teaching. In 2015, she trained as a forest school practitioner and set up the Phoenix Forest School later that year. A life-long passion for the environment and for how our ancestors lived have influenced many of her life choices, including the setting up of her latest incarnation Wild Awake, which sees her run courses in ancestral skills and animal tracking.

Now in her early thirties, O’Hagan is about to embark on another change in her life — moving to Falcarragh in Co Donegal, where she’s been visiting since childhood and from where she wants to deepen her own relationship with the land and the local community there.
