AINE

Celtic Fertility Goddess

Sunny Agricultural Goddess

Daughter of Eogabail, who was foster son of MANANNAN-MACLIR the Sea God.

She chose a life of landlocked love. She killed a king who tried to rape her, then branched out into Irish Agriculture. She had her own Aine’s Hill in County Kerry, where Midsummer Revels were held when she took on a new identity as a Fairy Queen.
