Why not just read the Mabinogion. There are any number of editions out
there. I recall a series of modern adaptations to those stories and I
just can't recall the author. She wrote four books; The Island of the
Mighty, Rhiannon, Annwn, and I forget the fourth (or maybe there were
only three, it's been so long ago since I read them). They were pretty
good reads as I recall. These were taken right out of the Mabinogion
and relate the stories of Mananan mac Llyr, Rhiannon, Annwn, Prydari 
and the other various god figures of Wales/Ireland. You should be able
to find them in a well stocked library.
