Welcome | fáilte 

In this episode we hear about Lugh’s frustration at being held back from the battle and see his efforts to work the other gods up into a battle frenzy. 

We ask:

  • What would it mean if the Fomorians won? 
  • What do the Fomóir have in common with the Aos Sí?
  • What forces in the universe are best represented by the Fomorians?
  • How did our ancestors view destiny?
  • How does Lugh feel about being held back from battle?
  • What is the purpose of Lugh’s roll call?

The Fomorians are on their way and Lugh wants to fight, but the other gods are keeping him from the battle. Convinced his destiny is to defeat the sinister Balor, he bides his time and prepares his fellow deities for the coming confrontation. 

Starring: Lugh, Dian Cecht.
