Greine

Greine (sunny) Sun/Earth/Fire (Celtic: Irish, Scottish, Manx) Sun goddess; goddess of herbalism. Greine, House of the Sun, is a master herbalist. She is also a crone goddess who awakens the fertility of the earth every Spring. Her priestesses dwelt in griannon, sun houses. Also called Daughter of the Sun, Tear of the Sun, and Greine of the Bright Cheeks, she devolved into the fairy queen of Leinster, Ireland. Cnoc Greine, in Leinster, is her sacred hill. Some say that Greine alternates with Aine, ruling the waxing year while Aine rules the waning year. Cited from Website: Midsummer
