Celts in Gaul
Celts in Ireland / The Celts and the Gods
The Milesians' arrival made the Tuatha de Danaan retreat from Ireland to their realm of Otherworld. An agreement was made between the Milesian druid Amergin and the Tuatha, for the latter to be worshipped by those new inhabitants, in exchange for protection upon the land. The Tuatha honored this deal, and were worshipped by the ancient Celts from about 2000 BC . Around that time, the Kree Eternals traveled to Earth. Mistaken for Gods by the Celts, they left, save for Ard-Con who lived there for a millennium as the Demon Druid, before being imprisoned by Tantalus.
Ousting the Picts
The Celtic Gaels came from the Isles of the West to the land of the Picts, whom they drove into the forest and the mountains, though some Picts refused to leave the lands, hiding themselves into caverns, ravines and caves. Many Picts also mingled with the Celts. The Celtic Britons would later come from Gallia and conquer the Gaels.
Circa 200 A.D.
In the 5th century, Catholicism was promoted by St. Patrick and spread upon the Isles, replacing the Tuatha de Danaan worship, although druid priests and priestesses continued to perform it in secret.
The Celts worshiped as gods powerful extradimensional humanoid beings known as the Tuatha de Danaan, who lived on the islands of Avalon and Tír na nÓg, in a small "pocket dimension". These beings helped the form the Celtic civilization.
