Celtic Dragon & Sword of Donn
Donn, "The Dark One" God of the Dead is one of the Sons of Mil
In the book called Lebor Gabala there is a story of the Sons of Mil (Iron Age) who invaded Ireland and fought with the Tuatha De Dannan (Bronze Age) on Tara for the control of Ireland. The Sons of Mil had a Serpent / Dragon wrapped around a staff / stick as their flag. This group was a Celtic Warrior dynasty that held the White Mare (Rhiannon in Wales, Epona in France, Eachtra in Eire) as their expression of the Goddess. Previous to them in the Irish Bronze Age, the White Cow was the Goddess symbol. The important thing here is that the Sons of Mil (Iron Age) who invaded Ireland and fought with the Tuatha De Dannan (Bronze Age) both had a Goddess consciousness. This ‘battle’ is only known today because the scribes of the catholic church recorded it long after it had happened. I suggest that the church adapted / re-wrote the story to suit their own ends but it also shows and proves reverence by the earlier inhabitants (ie pre-catholic) for the Divine Feminine. This battle on Tara is thought to have happened 3500 to 3000 years ago.
This ancient battle shows us that the Dragons presence has been in Ireland from at least 5,000 years ago.
In Celtic mythology, the dragon was believed to be of a world that was parallel to the physical world. It was thought, by the Druids, that the dragon’s power affected the ley of the land. They believed that the path the dragons took was important to the flow of energy through the physical world. Areas where a dragon passed often, where dragon paths crossed or places a dragon stopped to rest became more powerful than the areas surrounding it.
There are two types of dragons in Celtic lore. There is the standard winged version with four legs that most people are familiar with and there is a sea serpent that is depicted as either a giant wingless serpent or huge serpent with wings, but no legs. The dragon was a gatekeeper to other worlds and guardian to the secrets and treasures of the universe. They were often depicted side by side with the Celtic gods. As creatures that protect the Earth and all living things, Celtic dragons are considered the most powerful of all the Celtic symbols.
They are used as a symbol of power and wisdom among leaders. Dragons are seen on many coat of arms and on the Welsh flag. As a heraldic symbol, the dragon varies greatly, especially the ears. The wings are always that of a bat, its tongue and tail can be barbed or smooth. Y Ddraig Goch, the red dragon, on the Welsh flag was derived from the Great Red Serpent that had represented the Welsh god Dewi. King Arthur was one of the first leaders to use the red dragon. It was prominently shown on his helmet.
