These beautiful hand-made Fairy Goddess Dolls are named after Ireland's most famous Goddesses, beautifully made with with bright colours and designs...
All our our Goddess names are connected to the Tuatha de Danaan, the people of the Goddess Danu. When the Milesians arrived in Ireland and conquered them, Banba and her two sisters, Ériu and Fodla, all asked that the island be named for them. Ériu won the request, but Banba’s name continued to be used on occasion. Ériu won the contest because she made the most generous offering to the Milesians. Ériu’s name then became Eire, which is known as Ireland. The three sisters represent the spirit of Ireland.
Ériu was seen as the Goddess of Irish Sovereignty along with her sisters, Banba and Fódla. Ériu's name is thought to mean 'earth, soil' or 'plentiful', as well as 'fat land' or 'land of abundance'.
Fódla, daughter of Ernmas of the Tuatha Dé Danann, was one of the tutelary goddesses of Ireland along with her sisters, Banba and Ériu, she was part of an important triumvirate of goddesses.
Banba is one of the three Celtic Goddess of the spirit of Ireland. Banba’s name, which means “un-plowed land,”.
Danu was the Mother Goddess, from whence all Irish gods descend; she was also the namesake of the Tuatha Dé Danann. Little is known about her, though it is theorized that she may have represented the Danube River. The Irish mother goddess Danu was the ancestor from which all Tuatha Dé Danann claimed descent. Danu was clearly a very powerful and fundamental earth goddess, from which all power, wisdom and fecundity of the land poured forth. She was a wisdom goddess of Inspiration and intellect (In this case she is very similar to the goddess Brigit, who is thought to be the same goddess with a different title).
