I read one many years ago by Kenneth C. Flint, "A Storm Upon Ulster". 
A very fancified retelling of the Cú Chulainn stories.  Flint had 
several other titles dealing with Irish mythology/history around the 
same time (early- to mid-1980s) .

There was another novel around the same time called "The Táin"; I 
misremember the author's name.  I recall that the mounted 
horserider's image on the paperback version's cover looked to me more 
like an American Indian than an Irish chieftain.

A good source for out-of-print books like this is ABEbooks

It's probably not the same thing, but I have a two-tape animated 
video set called "Irish Legends for Children".  It contains several 
animated stories, including "The Brown Bull of Cooley", "Children of 
Lir", and "Deirdre of the Sorrows", to name a few.  I bought it for 
my son, who unfortunately wasn't fond of it.  If anyone's interested 
in buying it off me quite cheaply, write to me off-list.  It's just 
collecting dust on my shelf.

Le meas,
