Tuatha Dé Danann

Chapter V

Tuatha Dé Danann

The meaning formerly given to Tuatha Dé Danann was “the men of science who were gods,” danann being here connected with dán, “knowledge.” But the true meaning is “the tribes or folk of the goddess Danu,” which agrees with the cognates Tuatha or Fir Dea, “tribes or men of the goddess.” The name was given to the group, though Danu had only three sons, Brian, Iuchar, and Iucharbar. 1,086 more words
