Have you read "The Encyclopaedia of Celtic Wisdom", by Caitlin &
John Matthews? ISBN 1-85230-561-4. They have written a slew of books on
celtic traditions. It's a really easy book to find. Some of their books
are excellent, some are just average.
I must admit my favorite book currently about anything celtic is
"How the Irish Saved Civilization", by Thomas Cahill, ISBN
#0-385-41848-5. Although it's about history and not mythology, it is
still certainly worth reading.
I hope that is of some help.
