Is there any info about the Celts that we know for certain?

All I'm seeing right now is that the only thing that we know of is that they existed at one point.

Which branch of the Celts do people know most about?

There is some archeological evidence, as well as some descriptions written by Roman historians (and a couple of others).  Check out the reading lists here: http://www.ecauldron.com/reconcelt.php and here: http://paganachd.com/faq/index.html for recommendations for well-regarded histories of the Celts.

One of the pieces that is, unfortunately, lacking is much info on ancient Celtic religious practices.  Since they did not record anything in writing (relying insead on an oral tradition), we don't have the detailed accounts of religious beliefs and practices that we have for other ancient societies, including the Romans and the Egyptians.

You'll find that there are people here on TC who focus on a variety of different Celtic societies.  My personal focus in on Ireland, because I am dedicated to Brighid.  However, I'm very interested in the other areas as well.
