Ancient Irish Religion? not OT

I am Irish on my mother's side. so see there i'm really Irish. lol. anyway i have been reading a novel about Tristan and Isolde (my fav romance couple) and the book tells a lot about Isolde being a healer and the different herbs and oils she used and such. So it got me thinking, does anyone still follow the Goddess Mother religion and if so are there books on the healing portion of it? I'm not interested in changing religiouns, but the research would be cool and I could learn alot about natural remedies in the process. and yes I'll be bugging my librarian when we go tomorow too. lol

Yes, there are many different versions still being followed. But, for simple herbal and natural healing info, you don't need to look into any religious stuff. Just look around for an herbalist or maybe even an acupunturist could point you in the right direction.
