Heya,

I'm looking for any good sources of information about Lugh Lámhfhada,
if anyone could recommend a book, or website, or even just share what
they know about him, I would greatly appreciate it.

Now, that's a fine thing, DJ Droood. Ta, lad.
Isn't Lugh's birth and coming to the Tuatha even more interesting? I found it hitting the "previous"-button.

Are you only interested in the Irish Lugh or his Welsh cognate as well - Llew Llaw Gyffes.

He appears in the fourth branch of the Mabinoigen (I think) titled 'Math the Son of Mathonwy' here

Most dear is fire to the sons of men,
most sweet the sight of the sun;
good is health if one can but keep it,
and to live a life without shame. (Havamal 68)

I would suggest the tales of the Mabinogion.

I really don't want to offend anyone and I truly believe that what you say is more important than how you say it, but am I the only one who hears this preview and the way the tales ae told with a feeling of nails on a chalkboard?
