Irish or Celtic mythology also began as an oral tradition before being recorded in early Celtic Christian manuscripts.
Goddesses played a larger role in this mythology with The Morrigan, Danu, Brigid and Queen Medb being particularly prominent.
The myths of Ireland are told in four cycles, combining the Irish people and various Gods and magical beings. There was an emphasis on heroes and warriors fighting various battles that helped shape the country.
