Celtic Traditions
 
There are many Celtic traditions. Here are a few. This is definitely not a complete listing of Celtic pagan traditions. Some of these have old ties to historical practices, but they do not claim to be the original historical tradition of the ancients. Some of these have attempted to return their practices to the most pure version of early practices. That's a daunting task, but there's no reason for it not to be attempted. If you're interested in Celtic traditions of paganism, I strongly suggest you do a good bit of your own research and learning before you join a group that makes a lot of claims that they cannot substantiate. Of course that's true with any tradition of Witchcraft as well.
 

Arthurian
This is one of the more well-known traditions. As the name implies, this tradition is based on Arthurian Legends from Cornwall and Wales

Caledoni
This tradition preserves the Scottish festivals. It originated in Scotland and was formally known as the Hecatine Tradition.

Celtic
This broad tradition originated in Celtic Gaul, Western and Northern England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Brittany and the Isle of Man.

Cymri
Pronounced KIM-ree or KEEM-ree, this tradition is the principle Pagan tradition of Wales. It is influenced in part by the Arthurian legends.

Deborean
A combination of Celtic and Native American traditions, focused primarily on Celtic origins. Formed in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, the Carolinas and southwestern Virginia in the 1890s.
 
Deborean Wicca
An American eclectic tradition which attempts to reconstruct Wicca as it was before The Burning Times or the European witch craze.
 
Druid
This tradition is based on mostly modern views of the rituals, rites, magik and practices of the Celtic priestly class, the Druids.
 
Druid Reconstructionalists
This tradition is striving to return to the rites, magik and practices of the Druids based on historical and anthropological study.

Eireannach
Pronounced AIR-un-n'yock, this name is a catch-all of many Irish-influenced traditions.
    
Faery
The origins of this tradition come from the myths and legends of the Tuatha De Danann, the deities who are now known as "Faery Folk". This tradition focuses heavily on the environment.
    
Family
Traditions which are passed down through families are known as "Family Traditions". Some are secretive, others openly practice their Celtic Pagan beliefs, often times mixed with mainstream religious beliefs.
