Lugh's initial admittance to the company of the Tuatha De' Danann at Tara is a prototype for the type of initiation one would expect a Druid to experience. I have attempted to draw the necessary parallels between Lugh's admission and the stages of training for Druids. This includes the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual, disciplines expected of a Druid as well as a series of Magical Tests.
