If I ever want to know anything about Irish mythology, the person I turn to is Morgan Daimler, because she really is a fount of knowledge on the subject.
Morgan is an Irish Reconstructionist, a druid and a witch. She teaches classes on Irish myth and magical practices, fairies, and related topics in the United States, and is the author of several books. Her latest, Pagan Portals - Gods and Goddess of Ireland, is a superb introduction to the subject and a fabulous reference book for any pagan who wants to work with the deities of Ireland.
Publisher Moon Books says on its website: "A concise guide to the Gods and Goddesses of pagan Ireland, their history, mythology, and symbols. Rooted in the past but still active in the world today, the Gods and Goddesses of Ireland have always been powerful forces that can bless or challenge, but often the most difficult thing is to simply find information about them. This short introductory text looks at a variety of different Irish deities, common and more obscure, from their ancient roots to the modern practices associated with honoring them in, an encyclopedia-style book with entries in easy-to-use sections."
Gods and Goddesses of Ireland is a great addition to the Pagan Portals series, which offers short, well-written and affordable introductions to pagan subjects. You can order it via Amazon.
