As we work on developing our Reformed Celtic Reconstructionism, it would probably be really helpful to have access to reliable information as many Celtic deities as possible.

It seems that there are a number of folks here at TC who are very knowledgeable about specific deities, and who might be willing to post some information and links to resources.

For example, a few months ago, I put together this list of resources on Brighid for the Cauldron Cill: http://www.ecauldron.net/forum/index.php?topic=401.msg5534#msg5534 .  I'm hoping to do an essay soon -- as soon as I make it through some new material I have coming to me.  As soon as I do, I'll post it for anyone who is interested.

Is there anyone else who is collecting information on particular Celtic deities and who would be willing to summarize and post their research and/or links to resources?

If/when I find more info about Cernnunos, I'll put something together for you. I don't think he's the God that's been thwapping me after doing a little preliminary research, but I still find him fascinating.

Sure. I've been collecting links on various deities- I'll post what I've found so far here.
I did some research on the Cailleach, for an Imbolc ritual a while back so I have a few on her. They are in ABC order for ease of reference.

Infomation on Morrigan would be lovely!

"The Tain" translated by Thomas Kinsella has bits about The Morrigan.  It's a fabulous book, as Kinsella is a poet by trade, so you get lovely long bits of poetry and also the feel for the spirit of the times, if you know what I mean.

As for Irish deities, the Lebor Gabala Erenn has lots of information, mainly volumes 3 and 4.
