Notes: Earth goddess Danu

Danu

Danu is said to have literally suckled the gods. In Irish mythology, she is mother of the earth, the gods, fertility, wisdom, wind and of all the Celtic people. The story of Danu lingers with her offspring, Tuatha De Danann, or people of the goddess Danu, who in Irish folklore are known as the fairy people who are skilled in magic. When the Tuatha De Danaan reached Ireland’s shores to wage war against the Fir Bolg — a race of evil giants — Danu provided them sustenance, life and law.
