Veil of Invisibility

Irish - A protective cloak that made. Danaans invisible to mortals and gave them immortality. This cloak was said to have been one of the three gifts to the Danaans by Manannan. The others were the Feast of Giobhniu and the Pigs of Manannan. It was said that the power to become invisible was exercised by some druids. St Patrick is said to have acquired this power and used it to turn himself into a deer and his companion into a fawn so that they would not be recognised by enemies who lay in wait for them. In some references, referred to as Veil of Invisibility, Faet Fiada, Faet Fiada, Feth Fiadha or Feth Fiadha.
