    Asatru and the Goddesses of Ireland

    being of a Gaelic and Anglo Saxon background, I have seen interest in the Goddesses of Ireland as well as those of the heathen forefathers.

    looking more for opinions here than anything else. do those heathens herein, who may have such a mixture of ethnic lines, go hardline for one or the other aspect of their heritage or find a common ground between the two?

    I thank all in advance.

    Due to the rather strong degree of relatedness between the Germanic and Celtic pantheons and traditions (because of their shared Indo-European origin as well as cultural contact between Germanics and Celts back in the days), the combination of Celtic and Germanic religious elements shouldn't be that difficult, or even completely unnatural.
    You will have to see for yourself. If you feel more connected and more familiar with your Germanic heritage, I don't see why you couldn't focus purely on this. This is about whether you feel you belong to a particular Folk, not necessarily whether 100% of your ancestry is derived from the proto-Germanics.

    I see no real difficulty here ! Those 2 philosophies and religions are so closely related that you should be able to simply enlarge your pantheon in a way. It has been done before with the vanir, and i would say in your case you should do it just like our forefathers did it with the vanir, accept them into a common pantheon !
    There won't be humans in 500 years. Enough people choke themselves when they jerk off we gave it a name. We ain't a species made to last.

    Judging by it´s name common sense must once have been a pretty common thing. When and why did that change, so it became the rare treasure it is today???

    If you look at the Celtic and Germanic pantheons, you'll find a lot of the characters are the same, with different names.

    I'll go so far as to say that the Germanic peoples tended to keep more to the Aesic path, and the Celts to the earth-based, Vanic path. The gods may well have split the two paths and given them to two related peoples (Germanic and Celtic peoples have intermingled for a long time), to preserve them from that desert religion, where an "all eggs in one basket" approach may have lost a lot more than what we have.
