  • The concept of two worlds , the divine and the human , the peopling of megalithic shrines such as Newgrange with Celtic gods and goddesses, the journeying between worlds which characterises so much of Celtic Mythology, provide a supernatural atmosphere akin to the more mystical expressions of Christianity.
    Seán O Duinn provides a comprehensive overview of many aspects of Celtic spirituality , the landscape of Ireland with its megalithic tombs and stone circles; the origins of the Celtic peopole, the Paidreacha Dóchais or folk prayers, the importance of the Laoch or warrior, the connections between the current experience of Good Friday and Easter Sunday and the Celtic traditions, the significance of bonfires at Bealtaine and Samhain are all explored.

    The book comes in four parts:
    Part I: Who Were the Celts?
    Part II: The Easter Mystery
    Part III: Celtic Piety
    Part IV: The Cycle of the Year
