Ireland’s native mythology did not entirely survive the country’s conversion to Christianity. However, many Irish legends were preserved in medieval literature — albeit stripped of their religious meaning — and the surviving manuscripts represent the most extensive and best preserved of all the branches of Celtic mythology.
Irish mythology is generally divided into four overlapping cycles: the Mythological Cycle, encompassing the origins of the Irish people and the settlement of Ireland; the Ulster Cycle, an age of warrior heroes such as Cú Chulainn and Conchobar; the Fenian Cycle, following the exploits of Fionn mac Cumhaill and his band of men, the Fianna; and the Historical Cycle, dealing with the genealogies of historical Irish kings.
Notable Irish tales include the Táin Bó Cúailgne (the Cattle Raid of Cooley), the Togail Bruidne Dá Derga (the Destruction of Da Derga’s Hostel), the Tóraigheacht Dhiarmada agus Ghráinne (the Pursuit of Diarmuid and Gráinne) and the Tochmarc Étaíne (the Wooing of Étain).
