‘Morrigan na Badb’ by Jim Fitzpatrick, from his book ‘The Silver Arm’ | The Morrígan is a goddess of battle, strife, and sovereignty. She is often depicted as a trio of goddesses, all sisters, although membership of the triad varies; the most common combinations are Badb, Macha and Nemain OR Badb, Macha and Anand.
While Badb’s role in battle was sowing confusion and discord in battle, her sisters played different parts. Nemain was a spirit of frenzied havoc in battle, and Macha had more to do with slain warriors. The three sisters are together known as the Morrigan (sometimes the Morrígna), a triple-goddess with three aspects. Some sources, however, refer to Nemain as Morrigan, with Badb and Macha being different forms she could take.
Badb - Celtic War Goddess, also known as Badb Catha (battle Crow). Part of the trio of war goddesses known as the Morrigna along with Macha and Morrigan. Associated with war and death, foreshadowing imminent bloodshed, participating in battles, and harbringer of doom are all characteristics of the Badb
NEMAIN (Nemainn, Nemon,Neman, Némain, Neamhain, Nemhain,Nemain )was a shadowy early Irish war-goddess, and wife or consort of Néit son of Induí son of Tuireann Delbáeth, along with Fea Badb, whose identity she may share. Old Irish texts cite three goddesses of war, Badb, Macha, and Mórrígan, known collectively as Mórrígna. Sometimes Nemain is substituted in the trio for either Badb or Mórrígan.
The Morrigan is a goddess of battle, strife, and fertility. Her name translates as either "Great Queen" or "Phantom Queen," and both epithets are entirely appropriate for her. The Morrigan appears as both a single goddess and a trio of goddesses.
