Ainge

A daughter of the Dagda, she is briefly mentioned in the Lebor Gabala Erenn as dying in battle. There is also a late onomastic tale which attributes the creation of a forest to her; she gathered twigs to build a fire for a bath, but the twigs were stolen by Gaible, son of Nuada. When he threw them about, a forest sprung up.
