Blackthorn, Ogham name Straif, rules the Dark half of the year. In Divination it represents strife, obstinacy, stand up for your rights, assertiveness.

The shillelagh is recognized (as a symbol of Irishness. Shillelagh fighting sticks were traditionally made from blackthorn, oak, ash or hazel and smeared with butter then placed up a chimney to season, giving the stick its typical shiny, black appearance. Some sticks would have their tops bored out and molten lead poured in to add extra weight to the butt of the stick.
