Inghean Bhuidhe

by Almut Wille
The Irish goddess Inghean Bhuidhe ("yellow-haired girl" or "bloom of youth") is the second of three sisters representing the harvest cycle. She represents the coming of summer and is the nurturing mother goddess of the ripening of the crops. Just like her sisters, she became a Christian saint, a well was dedicated to her and she had her own feast day on May 6th, representing the first day of summer. Her name is also given as Iníon Buí. Her older sister is Lasair, her younger sister Latiaran.
