Tuatha Dé Danann: Today!

I do like that DC Comics paid a wobbly kind of tribute to Tuatha Dé Danann, in 1986, in volume 2 #1 and volume 2 #2 of Aquaman. Although in DC Comics’ world they are one of the ancient Atlantean races, who live in an undersea city Thierna Na Oge, and poor old Aquaman has a bit of a bad time with them.

However, in Irish mythology, the Tuatha Dé Danann were the fifth group to settle in Ireland, and feature in the Book of Invasions; and today in The Ark, actor, writer and storyteller Diarmuid de Faoite will be bringing some of these stories to life.
