All associations are for Irish Druidism as attested in Irish language texts. Due to the Norse and Christian invasions, many of these have, in medieval folk-tales, or in modern times, drastically different associations (tuathal - counterclockwise, was associated with "tuath", "tribe" - with the idea of the tribe as the basis of society, and "countryside" - nature, not town, as the sourse of wealth; however, in medieval and modern times "tuathal" means "wrong-headed"). Many "NA" have associations in medieval or modern Ireland.
A final note: in both modern and ancient Ireland a black cat is GOOD, not bad, luck. A WHITE cat is bad luck.
