Misshapen Monsters of Irish Myth

This misbegotten clan of creatures crept out of the sea to try and take over Ireland.

First were the Fir Bolg and last came the Tuatha Dé DanannDanu’S mob who had Lugh to help kick ass. At the time, the top of the Fomorians was Balor, who went down in an epic David & Goliath type duel with Lugh. Then it was goodbye to the Fomorians.
