AONGHUS

Celtic Love God

Also known as AENGHUS, OENGHUS, MAC-OG

God of Love and inventor of kisses

He’s the Celtic answer to CUPID.

As a love child of DAGDA and BOANN he carried on the tradition to become a love God, learning to play the harp and lulling the ladies with his smoochy lyrics.

To sustain his reputation as a Romantic Rascal he ran off with ETAIN the wife of his stepbrother MIDIR.

Pursuing the loves and doves side, four of these lovebirds were often to be seen circling above the curly head of this holy heartthrob. These are the symbols used for kisses at the end of love letters. xxxx. Use sparingly. More than four and they will go to waste.
