In Irish mythology, Luchtaine (or Luchta) was a son of Brigid and Tuireann[citation needed] and the carpenter or wright of the Tuatha Dé Danann; elsewhere he is described as the son of Luachaid.[1] He and his brothers Creidhne and Goibniu were known as the Trí Dée Dána, the three gods of art, who forged the weapons which the Tuatha Dé used to battle the Fomorians. Specifically Luchtaine agrees to make all the shields and javelin shafts required for The Second Battle of Moytura.[2]
