Celtic Mythology

The Insular Celts: Ireland and Wales

Was there an Irish-Celtic creation myth?

If there was a creation myth, it has been lost. There is the Cesair myth, and there is also the story contained in the Leabhar Gabhāla (The Book of Invasions), which is more a founding myth of Ireland than a creation myth as such. It features the poet-prophet Amairgen.
