Irish Unknown Goddess
Also known as Dechtiré
Flighty mother of Cuchulainn
She is the daughter of Maga and Cathbad, a Druid. At her wedding to someone of absolutely no Godly status, she happened to swallow a fly whilst swigging at the feast and fell asleep. She dreamed that Lugh told her to become his chick — 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, accompanied by a three-year-old child who was called Cúchulainn. The things that happen at weddings.
