Eriu Cover
'Eriu (modern Irish 'Eire), daughter of Ernmas of the Tuatha D'e Danann, was the eponymous matron goddess of Ireland. Her husband was Mac Gr'eine ('Son of the Sun'). The English name for Ireland comes from the name 'Eriu and the Germanic word land. The fact that 'Eriu is represented as goddess of Ireland, she is often interpreted as a modern day personification of Ireland, although since the name "'Eriu" is the older Irish form of the word Ireland, her modern name is often modified to "'Eire" or "Erin" to suit a modern form.
