Are there any books or web sites that tell the old everyday folklore tales of the Celtic Nations? I am mostly interested in Irish and Gaulic folklore, but any Celtic stories would be fine. I looking for everyday tales, stories that people told their children and grandchildren. I am figuring there are a least a book or two that have them written down, but I am not sure where to look.

W.B Yeats's Fairy and Folk Tales of the Irish Peasantry, Lady Wilde's Ancient Legends, Mystic Charms, and Superstitions of Ireland, James Stephens's Irish Fairy Tales, Douglas Hyde's Beside the Fire, Spence's Legends and Romances of Brittany, and Masson's Folk Tales of Brittany are all avalaible online at Sacred Texts:
http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/celt/index.htm

More recent collections of folklore -- and you're better off looking for "Ireland folklore (or folk tales)" or "Brittany folklore (or folk tales)" than "Celtic folklore" -- include works by Henry Glassie and Patricia Lysaght.

As with all the older material, take the stories, ignore the theorizing.

EDIT:  Sorry for the late edit, but I somehow managed to double post -- once normally, and once with everything I said in the quote box.  Weird.

Thanks so much. I have read a good bit of Yeats's work, but I have never gotten around to getting that particular book.

It didn't even occur to me to look at sacred texts, which is silly of me since I have been there often. Thanks again.
