    I'm looking for kind of an Irish Myth book. Something that names the major deities and figures, highlights the major stories, discusses mythological creatures, etc. Something analogous to Edith Hamilton's book on Greek mythology.

Many Celtic gods and goddesses have become a part of modern Pagan practice. Here are some of the deities honored by the ancient Celtic peoples. Brighid, Hearth Goddess of Ireland A daughter of the Dagda, Brighid is one of the classic triple goddesses of the Celtic pantheon.

    Furthermore, Transneptunians, otherwise known as hypothetical planets can also be found in the book. This is where we can find the names of Greek gods Zeus, Hades, and Vulcanus. But no matter how many symbols we see in this book, we can’t help but wonder about the real message of “The Lost Symbol.”. This book focused on the impact of Greek ornament on Celtic decorative arts, and was one of the earliest English-language works to employ the terminology established by Alois Riegl in his Stilfragen. From through Jacobsthal served as University Reader in Celtic Archaeology at Oxford University.
