CELTIC MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Ireland, Scotland, Wales & Gaul

CLIODHNA

Celtic Beauty Goddess

Also known as Clidna, Clionadh, Cleena

Queen of the Banshees who was unlucky in love

This beautiful Goddess fell in love with a handsome mortal, Ciabhan of the Curling Locks. But she was thwarted by MANANNAN-MACLIR, who lulled her to sleep with a lilting melody when she was on the seashore of The Land of Promise waiting for her love.

Unfortunately the Land of Promise was a hollow mockery as she never saw her lover again. MANANNAN-MACLIR sent a wave to scoop her away to the watery nether regions where she now resides amidst much foaming and tempestuous behavior.

She has a wave named after her but we don’t think surfers would be allowed to use it for health and safety reasons.
