Yea there are a wide variety of different, competitive beleifs that they gathered ideas. The Celts and the Romans did not get along to well from what I know, while the Celts have had a sense of mystique among them for their own beleives an practices of being druids.

Really on Cernunnos is a horned god in the "Celtic" myths, and he is not present in any form in the Irish Myths. There are plenty of Gods they could have picked on in the Irish group too, but tended to make them saints instead.
Its always a bit risky to do comparative mythology on unrelated groups (the Semitic groups which include the Jews and the Canaanites, are not very close to the Indo-european ones that includes the Celtic speaking people, the Germanic, Slavic, Iranian, Vedic (pre Hindu Indian), Greeks etc) . Same goes for etymology
What are your thoughts?
