Project Idea: Irish Mythology

Irish mythology begins with the legends of the mighty beings known as the Tuatha Dé Danann, along with the adventures of epic heroes like Cuchulain.

Research Tip: You can get an overview at the Wikipedia article on Irish mythology and the epic Táin Bó Cúailnge (the links will take you to all kinds of related articles). Then you can start exploring the Irish mythology books at the Freebookapalooza: The High Deeds of Finn by T. W. Rolleston, Tuatha De Danaan and of the Fianna of Ireland by Lady Augusta Gregory, and Legendary Fictions of the Irish Celts (see the Ossianic legends) by Patrick Kennedy, along with the Tain books: The Cattle-Raid of Cualnge by L. Winnifred Faraday, Heroic Romances of Ireland by A. H. Leahy, Cuchulain of Muirthemne by Lady Augusta Gregory, and The Ancient Irish Epic Tale: Táin Bó Cúalnge by Joseph Dunn.
