The Dagda has control over life and death, the weather and the crops, the time and the seasons. He wears a hooded cloak and owns a magic staff which can kill with one end and bring life with the other, a cauldron which never runs empty, and a magic harp which can control men’s emotions and change the seasons. He is said to dwell in Bru na Boinne (Newgrange). Other places associated with him include Uisneach, Grianan of Aileach, Assaroe Falls, Lough Neagh and Iveagh. The Dagda mates with several goddesses such as the Morrigan and Boann. His children include Aengus, Brigit, Bodb Derg, Cermait, Aed, and Midir.
