Ériu (pronounced AIR-ree) is the Celtic Goddess of Ireland. She is one of the Tuatha de Danaan, the people of the Goddess Danu. When the Milesians arrived in Ireland and conquered them, Ériu and her two sisters, Banba and Fodla, all asked that the island be named for them. Ériu won, and the island was named Éire in her honor. Her name means “land of abundance".
