Ériu and the hill of Uisneach

Ériu, after whom Ireland (Éire) is named, was one part of a triple Goddess, along with her sisters Banba and Fodhla. Ériu had close association with Uisneach the Centre of Ireland and a sacred place where the five ancient provinces met. Here we see her beginning the fire of Bealtaine as it was on Uisneach the first flame of that feast was lit, to be followed by subsequent fires throughout the land.  We see her standing by the famous Catstone, a huge rock formation and under which it is said she is buried.
