The lore of Ireland : an encyclopaedia of myth, legend and romance by Dáithí Ó hÓgáin( Book )

12 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ireland has one of the finest heritages of traditional culture and story, and a standard reference book covering the broad range of that material is long overdue. This volume combines the many strands of Ireland's heritage: folklore, myth, legend and romance. It includes 350 substantial entries, in alphabetical order from Aban, a sixth-century saint, to weather, all with references to sources, a synopsis of relevant stories and discussion of their origin, nature and development." "So, from the misty lore of the Tuatha De Danann to the dramatic realms of saints and scholars and to larger-than-life figures such as Daniel O'Connell and Michael Collins, this book opens a window on Ireland the Irish."--Jacket
The Celts : a history by Dáithí Ó hÓgáin( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Celtic-speaking peoples were one of the most important population groups to spread across the ancient European continent. From 800 B.C. to 1050 A.D. their story is one of expanding power and influence followed by contraction and near-extinction." "Drawing on all possible sources of evidence, from archaeological remains of ancient Greece and Rome to surviving cultural influences, Daithi O. hOgain outlines the history of the Celts. He follows the evolution of their culture as it gained strength on its two-thousand-year passage westwards through Europe, through the upheaval of the early middle ages to 'twilight' and decline in the west." "The influence of the Celts is far more widespread than its fragmented survival in the outer fringes of western Europe indicates; this once important culture is still a vital component of European civilisation and heritage, from east to west. In tracing the course of the history of the Celts, O. hOgain shows how far-reaching their influence has been."--Jacket

The sacred isle : belief and religion in pre-Christian Ireland by Dáithí Ó hÓgáin( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The myths and legends of prehistoric Ireland have inspired writers through the ages, down to W.B. Yeats and Seamus Heaney in our own century, but what do we know of the realities of ancient Irish belief? Daithi O hOgain's book approaches the question by studying archaeological remains such as tumuli, stone henges and circular enclosures and analysing the rich materials that have been handed down both in the great cycles of Irish heroic tales and the humble but significant survivals of modern folklore, for instance the traditions associated with wells and springs. Drawing evidence from these varies sources, he arrives at a balanced picture of a society and its beliefs which have all too often been the subject of conjecture and fancy."--Jacket
Celtic warriors : the armies of one of the first great peoples in Europe by Dáithí Ó hÓgáin( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Europe seems forever to have been a vast battlefield, and never more so than in ancient times when the Celtic peoples ranged across its hills and valleys, plains and mountains, for about a thousand years. Even their name comes from roots that indicate 'to strike, ' 'combat, ' 'fighter, ' 'destroyer, ' and would have been used by themselves as a laudatory term reflecting their success in overcoming other peoples and spreading their power." "Certainly the Celts were warlike peoples, whose power expanded greatly for some centuries. At various times, and often coincidentally, they did battle and settled in regions as far flung as Asia Minor in the east to Britain and Ireland in the west, and from modern Germany in the north to huge tracts of Spain in the south." "And yet the story of the Celts is in many ways a sad and tragic one, as the author describes in a thoroughly researched, highly readable text. He relates how, for instance, from attacking the Greeks homeland and even marching on Rome they were eventually forced to fall back across Europe such that their civilization almost disappeared. Remnants of their culture have survived in parts of western Europe, but today it is only in the British Isles and the north-west of France that the Celtic languages can be discerned."--Jacket
