Case File: Nechtán vs. the Dagda and Boann

Police Reports

Case Description: Nechtán accuses the Dagda of seducing his wife, Boann, while he was away on business for a day.

Case Status: Case settled. The Dagda and Boann did indeed have an affair that lasted "one night" (Nechtán was under a spell that made him think he was only gone for a day, but it was really nine months). The Dagda paid out the settlement. What Nechtán doesn't know is that the Dagda and Boann had a baby—Angus Og—who's being fostered by Elcmar. Shhhh, don't tell.
