Augus Og, on of the Dgda was the Irish God of Love. His palace was supposed to be at New Grange, on the Boyne. Four bright birds that ever hovered about his head were supposed to be his kisses taking shape in this lovely forms.
At their singing love came springing up in the hearts of youth and maidens. Once Angus fell sick in love for the maiden whom he had seen in his dreams.
He told the cause of his sickness to his mother Boanna, who searched all of Ireland for the girl, for her son, but never did find her. Then the Dagda was called to his aid Bov the Red, King of the Dannaans of Munster. The same whom we have met with in the tale of the Children of lir, and who was killed in all mysterious and enchantments.So Bov the Red undertook the search. And after a year had gone by he declared that he had found the beautiful maiden that was in Angus Og dream. He had found the maiden at a lake called the Lake of the Dragons Mouth.
Angus then goes to Bov the Red, after being entertained by him for three days by the lakes shore where he sees three fifty maidens walking in couples, each couple linked by a chain of gold, but one of them happened to be taller that the rest by a head and shoulder.
Augus shouted "That is she!
Augus Asks? "Tells us by what name she is know!'
Bov the Red anwsers Angus by saying that her name is Caer, daughter of Ethal Anubal, a princess of the Danaans of Connacht.
Augus laments that he is not strong enough to carry her off from her companions in the chains of gold, but on Bov the Red, advice be takes himself to Aileil and Maev, the mortal King and Queen of Connacht, for assistance.
The Dagda and Angus both repair the palace of Ailell, who then feasted for a week then asked the cause of their coming to the palace. When it is declared, "We have no Authority over Ethal Anubal" They send a message to him.
However he asked the hand of Caer daughter of Ethal Anubal for Angus, but then again Ethal Anubal refused to give her-up.
So in the in of theis Tale-
Angus Og is besieged by the combined forces of Ailell and the Bagda and taken in as prisoner.
But it doen't end There my dears-
Caer, daughter of Ethal Anubal again demands and declares that for she is more power than I. Caer then explains that she lives alternatiely in the form of a maiden and of a swan yearly and year about. On the first of November next, you will see here with a hunderd and fifty other swans at the Lake of the Dragon Mouth.
Well the story tale get better-
Angus shouts out, who calls out to her?
Oh come and speak to me!
Angus explains who he is, and then finds himself transformed into a swan. This is an indication of consent and he plunges into join his love in the lake.
After that they fly together to the palace on the Boyne, unttering as they go a music so divine that all heavens are lulled to sleep for three days and nights
Angus is the special deity and friend of beautiful youth and maidens. Dermot of the Love-spot, a follower of Finn Mac Cumbal and lover of Grania of whom we shall hear later was bred up with Angus in the Palace on the Boyne.
He was the typical lover of Irish legend, when he was slain by the wild boar of Ben Bulben Angus revives him and carries him off to share his immoritaliy in his fairy palace.
