The Tuatha Dé Danann ("Peoples of the Goddess Danu") are a race or tribe of people in Irish mythology and/or history.
  • The Men of Science who were Gods” was the meaning formerly given to Tuatha Danann, danann being here connected with dan, “knowledge.” But “the Tribes or Folk of the Goddess Danu” agrees with the cognates Tuatha or Fir Dea, “Tribes or Men of the Goddess” (J. A. MacCulloch).
In the lore of the invasions,* which begins with the Lebor Gabála Érenn, they are said to be the fifth group to settle Ireland, conquering the island from the Fir Bolg ("Men of Bags").

The Tuatha Dé ("Tribes of the Devas") are thought to derive from the pre-Christian deities of Gaelic Ireland. When the surviving stories were written, Ireland had been Christian for centuries, and the Tuatha Dé Danann were represented as mortal kings, queens, and heroes of the distant past; however, there are many clues to their former divine status.
