Fomorians and Tuatha Dé Danann

The myth of the Fomorians and Tuatha Dé Danann

In Celtic mythology, the deities are classified into two distinct factions: the Fomorians and the Tuatha Dé Danann. The former are entities linked to shadows and death, while the Tuatha Dé Danann symbolize light and life, engendered by Dana, the tutelary deity of the Earth. Bress-Tethra-Balar is the most revered and ancient entity associated with death, a three-headed divinity destined to be vanquished by Lug, the luminous divinity.

Legends whisper that Dana and Bress-Tethra-Balar spawned three offspring: Brian, Iuchar, and Uar, reflecting the venerable Celtic trinity that permeates their culture. This is embodied in elements such as the triskelion, with its three spirals symbolizing the phases of existence. Centuries later, Christianity would come to supplant the ancient Druidic practices with its own divine triad: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, often represented by a white dove.
