    Some have suggested that he is the same figure as Lugus, you can watch a really convincing video of this theory from The Celtic Sanctuary

    Taranis/Loucetios is tied for first right now and poised to take the lead. Lets make this happen folks!

    I'm surprised that only one person likes the god who is basically the main character of the gods, Lugus

    Yeah, I'd expect Lugus to be one of the favorites in your poll. I think a lot of people are more familiar with Norse Gods vs Celtic

    Well I already have the Morrigan in my sig so that is what I voted for. My favourite Gaelic gods are Lir and his son Manannn mac Lir who are sea gods. One of my favourite ancient stories is the Children of Lir.

    The Morrigan (also Mrrigan or Morrigu) is one of the most mysterious figures in Irish mythology.
    The name Morrigan means 'phantom queen' (or 'great queen') and describes a Goddess from old Ireland that was very associated with war, destiny, fate and death.
    She was a shape-shifter and frequently appeared as a black crow, an ominous sign for those who saw her prior to battle. Legend has it that the Morrigan was in fact a triad of sisters, often named as Badb, Macha and Nemain, while the Morrigan is also remembered as the triad of the land Goddesses riu, Banba and Fdla.
