As we talked about last time, the Tuathe de Danann are from Celtic mythology and are called the people of the goddess Danu. They came from four cities and brought magical artifacts with them. We have already talked about Dagda’s cauldron and the Sword of Nuadu. Today, we’re discuss Lugh’s Spear which came from Gorias.leaf-bladed-celtic-spear

Lugh was a young warrior and courageous. He is known for many skills and talent. One of his names was Ildánach , meaning “skilled in any arts”. He possessed several magical artifacts, including a sling, a sword and a fiery spear. It is said that no one could stand against this spear or the one who wielded it!

The spear represents knowledge and mental skills, as well as the skills necessary to become wise.
