It is sad to realize, how little we know about religion, beliefs and customs of our immediate ancestors because of the Christianization of Europe.

Crom Dubh (Old Irish: [krˠuumˠ d̪ˠuβˠ], Scottish Gaelic: [kʰɾɔum t̪uh]), meaning "dark crooked [one]" (also Crum Dubh, Dark Crom) is a mythological and folkloric figure of Ireland, based on the god Crom Cruach, or "king idol of Ireland", mentioned in the 12th-century dinnseanchas of Magh Slécht.[1]

The festival for Crom Cruach is called Dé Domhnaigh Crum-Dubh (Crom Dubh Sunday)[2] in Ireland, the first Sunday in August, but in Lochaber, a term for Easter) as in the Scottish Gaelic saying DiDòmhnaich Crum Dubh, plaoisgidh mi a t-ugh. "Crooked black Sunday, I’ll shell the egg."[citation needed][clarification needed]

Crom Cruach is called the chief Celtic idol of Ireland by Michael J. O'Kelly and was located on Magh Slécht (The Plain of Prostrations) in County Cavan, surrounded by twelve other idols.
