In Celtic mythology Boann is a water goddess, creator of the River Boyne in Ireland. Legend has it that Boann challenged the power of the Well of Wisdom (the magical well of Segais) by walking around it anti-clockwise, thus causing the waters to rise fiercely, rush to the sea, and ultimately create the River Boyne. Boann herself was swept along in the rushing waters and died in the flood.
