An Irish broth of a God. Leader of the Tuatha Dé Danann, he’s the God of Life and Death, War, Banquets and Magic.
He cornered the Irish fast food market with his huge cauldron full of everlasting food and a boar which never stops roasting.
His club so large it has to be transported on wheels, and if he slaughters you with the business end, don’t worry as the handle can bring you back to life. He’s married to the Mórrígan Mob and his daughter is the fiery Brigit.
Big-bellied, cheerful and raucous, Dagda is known in Celtic circles as ‘Da Good One’.
