Manage episode 290066032 series 2757156
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.
