Road to Moytura Episode III: Wrath of the Morrígan

Thank you for listening to this episode!

Here you’ll find our notes, links to research and some personal highlights from your hosts. 

Welcome | fáilte 

In this episode we hear how The Morrígan fulfils the promise she made to The Dagda to decimate the Fomorían army.

We ask:

  • How does the Morrígan fulfil her promise to The Dagda? 
  • How does this promise relate to her role concerning fate?
  • How are her dominion over death, cattle, and wealth interconnected?
  • What can we learn about The Morrígan from The Metrical Dindshenchas?
  • Who would Jeff Goldbloom play in this story?

The Fomorians are under attack! The invaders’ plan to conquer Ireland has been severely disrupted by none other than the daughter of their king, Indech Mac Dé Domhnainn. Just when they think they think they are through the worst, they face a new foe, The Morrígan, the deadliest goddess of them all.

Starring: The Morrígan, Indech Mac Dé Domhnain

Co-Starring: Balor, Bres, Elatha, the Fomorian host, the forest, a murder of crows, sorcerers. 

A cautionary tale on why you never ever get on the bad side of The Morrígan.
