About the Tuatha Dé Danaan
According to legend, the Tuatha Dé Danaan, or "Tribe of [the Goddess] Danu", were a race of pre-Christian deities who invaded Ireland from the Celtic 'Otherworld', ruling over the land for four thousand years before mysteriously disappearing. The Tuatha Dé often came into conflict with the Formorians, a similar supernatural race associated with elements like drought, destruction and piracy, whereas the Tuatha Dé represented benevolent aspects of nature and civilization. Rumour has it that the Aos Sí, which include fairies, leprechauns, and banshees, are the survivors and remnants of the Tuatha Dé who remain in Ireland.
