The Wooing of Étaín (Part 3) The Wooing of Ulster by Aengus

Irish Mythology Podcast

Apr 15 2021 • 56 mins

Midir loses an eye while trying to break up a fight; Dian Cecht works some healing magic; Aengus goes up to Down to woo Étaín for Midir; The Dagda fights an Octopus; WB Yeats is CANCELLED!

We ask if Aengus really was a god of love and/or a god of poetry and how he came to be associated with these things and we talk about family and networks of mutual aid.

There's a lot to unpack in this episode, the penultimate chapter in the first sub-tale of The Woing of Étain.
