Episode 127 - Invasions - The Island of Eiriu Post Show Chats

Candlelit Tales Irish Mythology Podcast

19-08-2021 • 1 hr 3 mins

Welcome back to the Invasions Series. We’re coming towards the end of this series, and today we're talking about the Sons of Mil, the last peoples to come to mythic Ireland. We’re talking about the “good” Tuatha de Dannan and how they might not be so black and white as all that; the gods and goddesses of the island and how it got its name at last; and the use of magic in Irish mythology. Just who is it that gets to be magical anyway? We’ll also be chatting about the different versions of the Battle of Tailtiu and how this might be the story of how the Otherworld was created.
