Dagda Fact and Dagda Fiction

An Scéalaí Beag Debunks the Dagda

  Enroll in Course

Online Course exploring what is known about the Good God of the Tuatha Dé Danann and trying to separate fact from fiction - with Dagda Bard Jon O'Sullivan, An Scéalaí Beag.

The Dagda is one of Ireland's most powerful and influential deities, yet for many years knowledge of this Good God has been lost, ignored or in some cases corrupted and maligned. So with the global growth of Irish Paganism and the recognition of this wonderful God, maybe it's time to try separate the Dagda Facts, from the Dagda Fiction?

This course will be exploring accurate and inaccurate information about the Dagda, both ancient and modern. We will then take a step into the teacher's personally informed perspectives with regards to what any of this might mean for us in a modern Pagan practice.

This Teaching is suitable for beginners, as well as those with more experience in this area, or in other traditions. You do not have to be dedicated to or working with any Irish Gods, Guides, or Guardians to take this class.

" I found Jon's writings on a sidebar of a blog of a person devoted to The Dagda. I had been searching for reliable and current content for some time. I enjoyed the blog so took the owner up on looking into this storyteller she was fond of. Wow! All it took was reading one story. I spent an hour at least reading as many stories as I could. From that point, I joined every site Jon was on. His storytelling is warm and rich and I could easily see events unfolding as I read. He has enhanced my relationship with The Dagda. I not only share Jon's work on Facebook but also in my community. When I meet others who are interested in the Irish deities I always recommend Jon. I have noticed a few of my friends now follow him." - Grip Dellabonte
