Quick Reference

Fictional sea-king and protagonist of W. B. Yeats's drama Shadowy Waters (1906), of dubious Celtic antecedents. Although Yeats explained that Forgael was based on Angus Óg yet was somehow also a member of Fir Bolg, informed commentators link him to the fabled 6th-century poet Dállan Forgaill.

Subjects: Religion.
