In [[Īrisc stǣrlār|Īriscre stǣrlāre]], '''Ériu''', dohtor [[Ernmas]]e þæs [[Tuatha Dé Danann]] (Cynn þǣre/þæs godes/gydenne Danu), wæs ān þāra foresprecendra [[gyden]]na [[Īrlandes]]. Hire hūsbonda wæs [[Mac Gréine]] (Sunne Sunu). Hēo wæs sēo mōdor [[Bres]] mid [[Elatha]]n Æðelinge þāra [[Fomoria|Fomorwarena]].
 
It is a great claim that Ireland was named after her. Se Englisca nama Īrlandes is of þǣre Englisc-Seaxiscan miscweðunge þæs naman Ériu mid þǣm Englisc-Seaxiscan worde ''land''.
 
==Role & Mythic Portrayal==
With her sisters, [[Banba]] and [[Fodla]], she was part of an important triumvirate of goddesses. When the [[Milesians_(Irish)|Milesians]] arrived from Spain each of the three sisters asked that her name be given to the country. Ériu ([[Éire]]) won the argument, but Banba and Fodla are still sometimes used as poetic names for Ireland, much as [[Albion]] is for [[Great Britain]].
 
Eriu, samod mid Banba and Fodhla, is sēo gyden ealdordōmes<!--sovereignty-->.
 
Is dwilmende þæt in ānum ēaganbearhtme wæs þēos gyden gemearcod tō bēonne wlitig cwēn and in þǣm nīehstan ēaganbearhtme swā scearpnebbe crāwe.
 
According to [[Seathrún Céitinn]] she worshipped the [[Badb]], who is also sometimes named as a daughter of Ernmas. The two goddesses may therefore be seen as equivalent.
