BOBD-DERG

Celtic Ruler God

Also known as Bodb Dearg, Bodb The Red, Bodhb Dearg, Bove Derg

Last of the Celtic Top Gods

A wise and wizardly son of DAGDA, he was elected king of the TUATHA-DE-DANANN.

When the Gods thought it was time to call it a day and retire to luxury homes and palaces concealed in mounds and hills, he took over from his father, being his eldest son.

MIDIR and LIR were not happy about this and went off in a huff to settle in distant districts.
