CELTIC MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Ireland, Scotland, Wales & Gaul

ARAWN

Celtic Underworld God

God of the Celtic Otherworld

This doleful character in his grey cloak is the Lord of ANNWN.

He is fond of taking his Hounds of Hell for a run to track down lost souls. This causes people to stay away and shun the Otherworld, which helps to keep the riff-raff out.

These days, the untrammeled wastes of Hell are always subject to the threat of golf courses and marketing conventions.
