The Rise of Lugh

Irish Mythology Podcast

Jul 30 2021 • 54 mins

Lugh goes to Tara to claim his place in the hall of the gods but first he will have to prove his value to them. To do this he must win at an ancient Irish version of chess called fidchell and undergo a test of strength from Ogma. We talk about Lugh, the festival of Lughnasadh, the continental celtic god Lugus, and the Welsh mythological figure Lleu Llaw Gyffes. Written, presented and produced  by Marcas Ó hUiscín and Stephanie Ní Thiarnaigh.
