In much of the Celtic lore, the year is described as having a bright half and a dark half. This duality is seen in Ireland with the summer ruled by the goddess Áine (of an ghrian mhór – the large, red sun of summer), and the winter by her sister Grian (an ghrian bheag – the small, pale sun of winter). This video explores some of their lore and the sites and times associated with them.
