I've definitely heard of Nemetona... and I seem to know of Flidais.
The two that are in my life are Sequana and Sirona. I'm in the same boat!

 
Sirona is fascinating. I have always been drawn to her as well, but it has never gone anywhere.

Oh I know people have heard of Nemetona, but really its pretty much the same 2 little blurbs about her that you can find online..... very frustrating LOL
Really?  So, hey, want to go fishing?  I\'ve got a telescope, and it\'s going to be a dark night, so we should see the fish really well.
...what, I\'m not talking about fishing?  That\'s stargazing?  It\'s all doing-stuff, so it\'s the same thing, right?

Yeah, and then... do you trust those blurbs?  A few days ago I was fiddling around with info once again about Belisama, and was very, very irritated that one link http://www.celtnet.org.uk/gods_b/belisama.html  that not only has Sirona's image been used for Belisama, but the info listed regarding snakes has nothing to do whatsoever with Belisama.

It was through this link that I at first thought I was going to work with Sirona... and am so glad I wasn't misled.  In fact, I think most of the things "known" about Belisama aren't true.

Sooooo.... it's hard for me to trust anything on the web.  :(  What books have you found helpful to you regarding Nemetona?  I am finally toward the end of "Gods of the Celts" by Miranda Green.

Oh, also, have this one:

The picture? Sequana. X_X

Have you read Green's _Celtic Goddesses_?  It includes a couple of pages each on Sirona and Sequana.

You know, I think you sent me some copied stuff on Sirona at some time.  I still have that stack of papers upstairs on my bookshelf.  I probably have read that one. I know I have Green's Concept of the Goddess.  

I'll run to go and look for that now on books.google.com

Sorry. I don't remember sending you info.  (I have a terrible memory.)  I probably included the sections from _Celtic Goddesses_.

 Oh, no, my memory is horrible too; there are giant chunks of my life I don't remember. So, we're in the same boat, so to speak.  However, I did just go onto books.google.com and found out that while I don't have that book, my friend let me borrow it for a little while.  I also found the Animals in Celtic Life And Myth by Green, which is also very good; the sections that google would let me read, anyway.

I also really like her books about symbols and images in Celtic art.
