The great of the old times are among the Tribes of Danu, and are kings and queens among them.
Danu, mother of the race, was considered as a daughter of Dagda.
So, too, the identity of Danu and Brigit might be explained, or the fact that there were three Brigits.
This may have been the case with Danu, for in Celtic belief the gifts of civilisation came from the underworld or from the gods.
The Tribes of the goddess Danu can take all shapes, and those that are in the waters take often the shape of fish.
Dagda (the 'good hand' or 'good god'), father of Danu, played the spring season into being with his harp.
