BANBA (pronounced BAHN-va) is the Celtic Goddess of the spirit 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, Banba and her two sisters, 'Eriu and Fodla, all asked that the island be named for them. 'Eriu won the request, but Banba's name continued to be used on occasion. Banba and her sisters are the daughters of Ernmas, a mother Goddess, who is also the mother of another triad of Goddesses--Badb, Macha, and Anu, also known as the Morrigan. The first triad represents the sovereignty of Ireland, while the second triad were Goddesses of war, and therefore represent the protection of Ireland. Banba's husband MacCuill was one of the last kings of the Tuatha de Danaan, along with his brothers MacCecht and MacGreine. Banba's name, which means "unplowed land," is also seen as BANBHA, BANDHA, B'aNBH'e, or B'aNUBH.
