* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Tuatha De Danann Mythology
« on: May 02, 2014, 09:21:00 pm »
This is probably a stupid question, but I was wondering is there a book/document available detailing the mythology of the Tuatha De Danann?

Both of these.
Other than that, perhaps try and find books dealing with the cycles- especially the Mythological Cycle. Maybe have a look at Proinseas Mac Cana's book 'Celtic Mythology'.
I'd also check out the Táin translation by Thomas Kinsella and books to do with the Finn Cycle because there's a fair bit in the other cycles (especially Finn and Ulster Cycle) regarding the Tuatha Dé Danann :)
Muireann Ní Bhrolcháin's 'An Introduction to Early Irish Literature' is an excellent book that I'd highly recommend to anyone interested in early Irish literature in general- it deals with each cycle and everything else :)
