Pagan Portals - Lugh
An introduction to the complex and multifaceted Irish deity, Lugh.
Lugh is a God of Ireland who is also found in other Celtic language speaking cultures, popular historically and just as well loved today. A deity of kingship and battle, he led his people out of oppression. A God skilled in magic, he used his power to bless and curse. Multifaceted and known as the 'many-skilled', Lugh is an intriguing member of the Tuatha De Danann and we can learn a great deal about him through his mythology, by looking at his cognates in other related cultures, and his modern appearances.
In this book we will seek a deeper understanding of this well known yet mysterious figure.

At the heart of Morgan Daimler’s text is the transition between how Lugh was portrayed in Irish myth and folklore, and how that was changed, particularly in the early 20th Century. The differences are quite startling, but Daimler takes the reader through these differences with confidence and authority. There is plenty of scope for the reader to begin their own investigation of Lugh, with an interesting array of resources referenced throughout. This is the perfect re-introduction to a well-known God who may not be who you thought he was! ~ Andrew Anderson, author of The Ritual of Writing and Pagan Portals: Artio and Artaois
