The substance of this paper was read before the Royal Irish Academy on the 25th of January, 1869. It was very influential in establishing the interpretation of The Morrígan as being the goddess of war. The Morrígan ("terror" or "phantom queen") or Mórrígan ("great queen") (aka Morrígu, Morríghan, Mor-Ríoghain) is a figure from Irish mythology who appears to have once been a goddess, although she is not explicitly referred to as such in the texts.
