I bid you, unless you know of another who is master
of all these arts, take me to Nuada Airgitlamh,
take me to Nuada, king of the Tutha de Danann.

The gatekeeper went to Nuada.
When Nuada heard of Lugh’s coming he said:
Let him come in, for never has his like entered this fortress

Lugh the Il-Dana was admitted to the Tara
Lugh Samildanach was admitted to the palace of the Tuatha De
Lugh master of all arts found his place amongst the Tuatha de Danann
