The Goddess Clíodhna words and story from Shelly at Tales from the Wood - there aren't many figures in Irish mythology that capture the imagination quite like the Goddess Clíodhna. Said to have been the most beautiful woman in the world, Clíodhna is a Goddess of love, and Queen of the Banshees in Ireland. She herself is considered a powerful Banshee, and her realm is in South Munster, particularly County Cork where the tales of her deeds are deeply rooted in the folklore of the area.The stories of Clíodhna are fascinating in their contrasting tones, and really add to the sense of intrigue that surrounds her. In some she is a loving figure, while in others she is dark and dangerous. This mixture of representations makes her one of the most interesting Irish mythological figures.
The Three Birds of Clíodhna - Clíodhna lived in the divine realm of Tír na nÓg and had three brightly coloured birds that surrounded her at all times. The birds were in possession of magical healing powers, having eaten apples from one of the sacred trees in Tír na nÓg. The story goes that if you were afflicted with sickness or injury, the birds would sing to you and lull you to sleep. Upon awakening, your ailments would be healed
