He recruits the blacksmith Gobniu and the silversmith Credne to help him create a new arm for the former High Chief of the Gods, Nuada. What was Dian Cecht's role in myth and in the old pagan religion? What is Dian Cecht’s relationship to Brehon Law? What makes Dian Cecht a symbol of the medical profession? Why were Blacksmiths considered to have supernatural powers? How do we resolve contradictions in medieval mythological texts? credits Written, presented and produced  by Marcas Ó hUiscín and Stephanie Ní Thiarnaigh.
