Mag Mell...

Mag Mell, the Land of Promise, the Island of Apples, Emain Ablach, Tir na nOg... These are the names of many of the beautiful island paradises that Celts and others believed they would go to when they died. Then again, perhaps these are many names for the same place, for the descriptions of them all sound rather alike.


Whether one island or a series of them, Manannan Mac Lir is often said to rule over them. Myths often speak about his houses being full of beautiful people, music, and entertainment of all sorts. Then there is the Feast of Age, a massive banquet that not only fills you up but keeps you young forever.
