The concept of two worlds - the divine and the human - the peopling of megalithic shrines such as Newgrange with Celtic gods and goddesses, the journeying between worlds which characterises so much of Celtic Mythology, provide a supernatural atmosphere akin to the more mystical expressions of Christianity. Seán Ó Duinn provides a comprehensive overview of many aspects of Celtic spirituality - the landscape of Ireland with its megalithic tombs and stone circles; the origins of the Celtic peopole, the Paidreacha Dúchais or folk prayers, the importance of the 'Laoch' or warrior, the connections between the current experience of Good Friday and Easter Sunday and the Celtic traditions, the significance of bonfires at Bealtaine and Samhain are all explored.

The book comes in three parts:

Part I - Who Were the Celts?

Part II - Celtic Echoes in Gaelic Tradition

Part III - The Celtic Year and the Liturgical Year
