I think Peter Beresford Ellis had a go at one in one of his books - I've not read it though, so I could be wrong.


I hope it's okay for me to post in this thread.

The book you are referring to is Celtic Myths and Legends  ISBN 10: 0-7867-1107-8

I'm not in any ways an expert on the Celts, but I'm of the understanding that the author of that version simply made it up by himself, and that book isn't entirely trustworthy. It might be useful if someone is interested in a few more obscure myths, but I'd take his versions of it with a grain of salt.

Have any of you tried taking those fragments and hints and combined them with UPG and/or myths from non-Celtic cultures to come up with a Celtic creation myth?  Know of anyone who has?


I haven't yet, but I think I kind of like not having a concrete Celtic creation myth for this very reason. I think it allows you to study the legends and come to your own conclusions about how everything started, and for that reason it may feel more personal. Also, if you don't feel you need any type of creation story, you're welcome to not bother with that area at all. It's kind of a nice change.
