Fand is a Celtic Sea Goddess who, with time, became the most loved of Ireland’s Fairy Queens, called ‘Queen of the Fairies’. Fand, meaning ‘Pearl of Beauty’ or ‘Tear’ was stunningly beautiful. Though she was married to the Celtic Irish Sea God, Manannan Mac Lir, She, like other fairy queens, fell in love with and then enchanted a mortal man, linking our world with the ‘Other World’. Being the Goddess/Fairy Queen she was, Fand fell in love not with any common man but with Cuchulainn, the greatest Irish hero.
