OE 1Oenghus: Also known as Aengus. The product of an illicit affair between Dagdha, chief of the Irish gods, and Boann, goddess of the rivers, Oenghus was concerned with affairs of the heart, and is considered the god of fatal love. Four birds always fluttered around his head, thought to represent kisses. He and the faerie maiden Caer lived together as swans after he proved himself and won her hand. After his foster son, Diarmuid Ua Duibhne, was slain by a boar, Oenghus breathed a new soul into the man.
