Gods Goddesses Legends Myths: Fódla (pronounced FO-la) is the Celtic Goddess of Ireland. She is one of the Tuatha de Danaan, the People of the Goddess Danu. When the Milesians arrived in Ireland and conquered them, Fódla and her two sisters, Ériu and Banba, all asked that the island be named for them. Ériu won the request, but Fódla’s name continued to be used on occasion. Fódla’s husband, MacCecht, was one of the last Kings of the Tuatha de Danaan. Fódla’s name means “a sod of earth.”
