Macha ( the Nemedian )
« on: January 10, 2021, 07:19:17 pm »

So, short question made long.
I've found myself curious about the fact that Macha appears several times in different points of time in the Irish mythos ( not sure if that's the right word but I can't think right now ). Strangely it's something that didn't twig in my mind before although I've long had this feeling that The Morrigan ( as a triple goddess inc. Macha ) was somehow apart and older than the Tuatha de Danann.

Anyway I'm wondering if there is any more information on this older aspect of her in addition to that she died clearing the plains of Ireland that you could point me towards? Or any UPG you have on this period of her existence ( or if you feel these are seperate people formed together with time ).

I know she also appeared earlier as a daughter of Partholon but this, it seems, is even sketchier on information.
