Onóra ingheainn Uí Rauric
|Award & Office Badges|
Master Onóra ingheann Uí Rauirc joined the SCA in September of 2006 with the most enthusiasm ever. She originally found the SCA in attempt to find a place to practice archery. She wanted to jump head first into every part of it. The only problem was, She was painfully shy. The SCA, along with the colorful characters that were apart of it, helped her overcome that problem. She started practicing archery and entering local Baronial Arts and Sciences competitions. Soon she became the Mistress of A&S for the Canton of Hawkes Reache and then the Chronicler for the Barony of An Dubhaigeainn. In June of 2013 she became an apprentice to Baron Master Ateño of Annun Ridge for calligraphy and illumination. Now, painting and studying manuscripts is her life. She was elevated to the Order of the Laurel in September of 2019. She paints almost everyday, and when she is not painting she is researching. Shes determined to never stop learning!!

In Case of Court
I prefer a bit of a warning a few days before being summoned. The warning does not have to be specific, just a heads up so I don't get super scared.
