      Tuatha Dé Danann 

       

      Tír na nÓg

       

      These are the most correct as far as my Irish knowledge takes me, though Alexei would have a greater authority.  ---djb

      I’m trying to develop editorial standards for Mythlore for a couple of Irish mythological terms. Anybody out there with some expertise on the matter care to state a scholarly preference?

       

      Tuatha Dé Danann or Tuatha de Danaan? 

       

      Tír na nÓg or Tir-nan-Og or Tir Na Nog or…

       

      Thanks!
