GOIBHNIU
Also known as GOIBNIU

The Great Smith, who loves tinkering about wid eart'ly tings.

He's the sole supplier of weapons to the TUATHA-DE-DANANN and specializes in patent swords that never miss their target. He also has a good sideline in brewing Beer of Immortality.

With an uncle like this, no wonder LUGH excelled at everything.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Goibhniu graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Goibhniu movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Goibhniu statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Goibhniu. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
