Goddess of the River Boyne, mother of Angus mac Og by the Dagda. A magic hazel tree overhung a well belonging to Nechtan. The tree dropped nuts into the water imbuing it with great knowledge. When Boann approached the well, it burst forth in a great gush which overwhelmed Boann and created a new river - The River Boyne.
In Celtic mythology|Goidelic mythology, Boann ("she of the white cattle") was the wife of Necthan or Elcmar. Her lover was Dagda, by whom she was the mother of Aengus. In order to hide their affair, Dagda made the sun stand still for nine months; therefore, Aengus was conceived, gestated and born in one day.
