Mythology

What is hell called in celtic mythology? It isn't Tir na n-Og.

And Sra, don't patronize me with a Google search.

  1. I recommend that you read this excerpt from a book on that subject (or get the book):

    What you are looking for may not exist.

  2. Sorry, that was not meant to be patronizing at all, but simply to show you places to look. From the Celtic Mythology book, did you see the following:

    Uffern [cf. L infernum, hell]. Name for the Welsh Otherworld in the Latin texts of Walter Map (c.1140–c.1209) and Giraldus Cambrensis (c.1146–1223); a semantic dismissal showing unmistakable Christian influence. Uffern has become the Welsh word for the Christian hell. See also ANNWFN.
