The Boyne river in County Meath Ireland has always been of great importance and a great source of inspiration to the Celts.  It is said in folk legend that Boand (a great goddess) made a great blunder, having walked three times counter clockwise around the rivers source (to the Celts this is part of a ritual used to raise a sort of curse) and in doing so incurred the wrath of the river and drowned.  Thereafter the river was named after her.  Boand is a source of inspiration to poets and bards in the Celtic heritage.
