Queen goddess. Danu Goddess of magic, wisdom, and water. Eriu Goddess and namesake of Ireland. Britannia Goddess of War and Britain. Still used as a symbol of Britain. Epona Goddess of Horses The Harp of Dagda Dagda owned a magical harp. He took it with him always, even in battle. One day, during battle with the Fomorians, they stole his harp. Infuriated, he gathered his finest warriors to go with him to retrieve it. They reached the Fomorians castle and burst into the banquet hall. The Fomorians drew their arms, but before they could strike, Dagda called out,"Come to me, O harp!" The harp flew off the wall on which it hung, and flew back into his master's hand. He played the melody of tears, causing the Fomorians to weep. He then played the music of mirth, making the Fomorians laugh hysterically. Lastly, he played the song of slumber, making the fall into a deep sleep. He and his warriors left the castle, rejoicing at their victory. Map Book of Invasions The Book of Invasions retells the (fictitious) history of the Celts, particularly in Britain and Ireland.
