was the fairy goddess and guardian protector of all birds
(aka, the bird goddess). The ancient Celts believed that birds represented the transition from the human world to the Otherworld (i.e., the Celtic Land of the Dead), where they were reborn after death. Sacred birds such as the owl, the eagle, and the blackbird carried the souls of mortals to various Otherworld realms such as Tir na
nOg, Tir na mBeo, Tir na mBan, and Tir Tairngiri.
