Brugh na Boyne…

***

Angus Og was the son of Boann, wife of Elkmar,

who lived together in a wonder-hill on the Boyne.

*

The Daghda wanted to sleep with Boann

so he sent Elkmar on a long errand

and made nine months seem like one day.

*

Angus was conceived, and born,

and fostered on Midyir.

*

His mother called him, ‘the young son’

for he was conceived after dawn

and born before sunset of the same day.

*

When taunted about his parentage

Angus was taken to see the Daghda, by Midyir, who

instructed him how to gain the wonder-hill on the Boyne from Elkmar.
