FAND

Irish Ruler Goddess

Queen of the Fairies

She is Mrs Manannán mac Lir. She caused a few difficulties when she left her husband and the Fomorians mob whistled at her and made improper suggestions.

She sent for the hero Cúchulainn to sort them out, but could not resist having the hots for him.

Whoops. He was already married to Emur, and this caused lots of soap opera hysteria with the two males and the two females pointing fingers and shouting a lot and coming close to hysterics. Manannán mac Lir got into the best flap because he had a magic cloak.

When he flapped it, Fand agreed to return to him, although she would never be capable of seeing Cúchulainn again however hard she looked. This was further reinforced by drinks of forgetfulness from the Druid Breweries.
