Texts In Which The Morrigan Appears

These works are the major texts in which the Morrígan or one of the Morrígna appears, but there are other texts in which she’s mentioned in passing that aren’t included. This list was originally compiled by Morpheus Ravenna in "The Book of the Great Queen". All credit goes to her and her incredible work, as well as the contributions of the Coru Priesthood.
