BECUMA IS THE IRISH GODDESS OF THE "MAGIC BOAT", OF HEAVEN AND HELL; SHE IS THE GODDESS OF BANISHMENT. BACUMA'S TALE IS ONE OF MANY TRIALS AND HER SURVIVAL. BACUMA ORIGINALLY CAME FROM THE LAND OF THE FAERY. IT SEEMS THAT SHE WAS MARRIED TO A CELEBRATED TUATHA, BUT COMMITTED ADULTERY WITH GAIAR, A SON OF MANANN MAC LIR. SHE HAD FALLEN IN LOVE WITH HIM AND CHOSE TO LEAVE HER HUSBAND; BUT, IN THE FAERY WORLD, THIS SORT OF 'WANTON' BEHAVIOR WAS UNACCEPTABLE. SHE BECAME AN OUTCAST AMONG HER PEOPLE. AND EVENTUALLY, BACUMA WAS STRIPPED OF MOST OF HER POWERS AND BANISHED TO LIVE WITHIN THE LAND OF THE MORTALS.

BACUMA WAS A VERY BEAUTIFUL MAIDEN, AND IT WASN'T LONG BEFORE SHE CAUGHT THE EYE OF THE HIGH KING OF TARA, "CONN OF THE HUNDRED BATTLES". SOON, THE PAIR WAS WED, BUT, THINGS DID NOT GO SMOOTHLY. SHE REALLY WANTED TO BE WITH HIS SON, ART, BUT CONN WAS THE KING SO SHE CHOSE HIM. SOON THEREAFTER, THE LAND OF IRELAND BECOMES DESOLATE, DEVOID OF FOOD AND MILK...AND ALL BECAUSE CONN HAS CHOSEN TO MARRY AN UNWORTHY WOMAN. NOW, CONN LOVE BECUMA AND RATHER THAN GIVE HER UP, HE CHOOSES TO EXILE ART INSTEAD. HOWEVER, WHEN CONN CONSULTS HIS DRUIDS, THEY TELL HIM WHAT IS REALLY AT THE BOTTOM OF HIS PROBLEM, AND BECUMA, THE 'SINFUL WOMAN' IS ONCE AGAIN DRIVEN FROM HER HOME. SHE NOW RESIDES IN THE OTHERWORLD.
