Athair is the modern Irish word for 'Father' and 'Olathair' is an old Irish name that ties directly with one very singular deity. Olathair is best translated as 'great' or 'ample' father and there is only one God of Ireland that fits both of those descriptors very comfortably. He is an Dagda.
Oghma served the Tuatha Dé Danann as their Champion, bringing his great strength to bear time and again in the challenges that faced his tribe. Yet it was not only the power of his arm by which he served. It was also with the power of his mind.
Amongst the Tuatha Dé Danann we find mention of the Badb, or Badhbh in modern Irish. She is listed, along with her sisters Macha and The Mórrígan, as a Goddess of battle and death. Said to take the form of a hooded or scald crow the Badhbh flies over the battle fields of Eireann and that her raucous cries cause the weak of heart to quail in terror.
The Lebor Gabála Eireann, or Book of Invasions tells of the coming to Ireland of the Tuatha Dé Dannan. As this tribe struggled to establish themselves upon the land and then defend it from invasion and war, there was one among the heroes who offered to do all that any other could volunteer. The lore tells us that they called him An Dagda as he was their Great God of druidry and magic.
No matter which Brighid you choose to explore you will find someone who is not adverse to doing what's needed, bringing about the change whether it's with the airs of poetic inspiration, the turning of a cursed word, or with the pounding purifying works of the forge. Whatever your personal view of this Goddess, there can be no doubt that when time comes, Brighid can drop the hammer.
In Ireland those who heard the howl would know to seek the protection of their safe spaces. As with the black coach and the Banshee, the Cú Sídhe is a harbinger of death, so pay attention when you hear the howl of the Cú Sídhe.
There is a saying that knowledge is power. The knowing of a thing leads to understanding and in understanding we are empowered. Might I suggest you take some time to get to know Mananán Mac Lír, so that you too may be prepared for when the Otherworld calls.
The Dagda is a God of labour, but also a God of balance and rest. Of getting what you deserve for the efforts you put in. Honouring Him is not as hard as you might think, it can be quite easy in fact... just Do the Work.
Medb is a multi-faceted figure of Irish lore, linked with priestess work in the Otherworld, the sovereignty of Ireland itself as a goddess, and the rites of judgement and right rule. The Banshenchus (the Lore of Woman) manuscript, may have described her best; "Glorious, perverse, extravagant and liberal".
