CLIODHNA (pronounced KLEE-nah) is the Irish Goddess of beauty. She was one of the Tuatha de Danaan, and became known as the Fairy Queen of Munster. She fell in love with a mortal named Ciabhan and ran off with him. One day, while Ciabhan was off hunting, Manannan mac Lir, God of the sea, sent a wave that carried her back to the land of fairy.

In the 15th century, the Irishman Cormac MacCarthy called on Cliodhna to give him her assistance with a lawsuit. Cliodhna appeared to Cormac and told him to kiss the first stone that he saw in the morning on his way to court. He did so, and was so persuasive in court that he won his suit. He then took the stone and hid it away in the walls of his castle, where it remains to this day--the Blarney Stone.

Cliodhna, whose name means "the shapely", was also known as CLIODNE, CLIDNA, CLIONA, or CLEENA.
