Episode 2: Goddesses of the Water

‚ÄčGoddesses of the Water

Nearly every single Irish river and lough is named for a deity from the annals of mythology. Most are goddesses of the Tuatha de Danaan. Some are from the Fir Bolg. Others involve the likes of Finn MacCool and the Children of Lir. In this episode Turtle tracks the origin of these names and provides a colourful retelling of the legends associated with Ireland's original waterways.
