Angus, the Celtic Eros. In the bardic stories he is described as a tall, golden-haired youth playing on a harp and surrounded by singing birds. The kisses of these birds brought love and after that death.
Lir, the Oceanus of Celtic mythology. Probably the Great Deep or original divinity from whom all sprang. His son Mananan MacLir was the most spiritual divinity known to the ancient Gael. Lir is more familiar as the father of the children who were changed into swans by magic, and who lived for long ages on the waters around the Irish coast. The story of the fate of the children of Lir was probably in its earliest form a mythological account of the descent of the spirit from the Heaven-world to the Earth and its final redemption.
Fomor, the dark powers who were opposed to the hosts of light, the Tuatha De Danaan. They enslaved the latter for a time until the De Danaans rose, led by Lu the Sun-god, and defeated the Fomors in the battle of Moytura.
Sacred Hazel, the Celtic tree of life. It grew over Connlas Well, and the fruit which fell from it were the Nuts of Knowledge which give wisdom and inspiration. Connlas Well is a Celtic equivalent of the First Fountain of mysticism. As an old story states, The folk of many arts have all drunk from that fountain.
The three great waves are the wave of Toth, the wave of Rury, and the long, slow, white-foaming wave of Cluna. In the bardic stories these three mystical waves shout round the coast of Ireland in recognition of great kings and heroes.
