Irish Deity Names


When reading about Irish deities there are two things you have to bear in mind :-

1. Spellings are optional. A name may be spelt (depending on which source you read) as Tealte, Tailte and so on and so forth.

2. There can be several people called the same name. For example, I have found seven people called Donn.

All this means that deities are a bit more confused in Ireland than in other places.
