DECHTIRE

Celtic Goddess

Mother of Cuchulainn

Daughter of MAGA and Cathbad, a Druid.

At her wedding to someone of no Godly status, she swallowed a fly whilst swigging at the feast and fell asleep. She dreamed that LUGH told her to become his bird along with fifty of her kinswomen, and fly to him as a flock of birds. So she did.

She did not come back until three years later and she had a three-year-old child with her who was called CUCHULAINN. The things that happen at weddings.
