Mighty Irish Sea God of many a heroic tale.He can take the form of a heron or sneak around in his invisible cloak, and is fond of affairs with mortals. If you see any children with webbed fingers or toes it's down to him.
A member of the TUATHA-DE-DANANN clan, Big Mac rules the sea, forecasts the weather and looks after Mag Mell, the Seaside Town of the Dead. Realms of the deceased are usually pretty grim, but having kicked out the previous management he's transformed the place into a paradise.
His official Headquarters are the Isle of Man, but we're not sure how much of a paradise that is. Why not take a vacation there and send us a postcard?
