I read this book many years ago and cant remember the title or author.
Earth spaceship runs into another spaceship shaped like a giant Golden Dragon, on board are the Tuatha De Daanan who left earth centuries ago and use a crystal magic psychic based technology and are now at war with the darker elves or something like that.

Also,this may be in the same book or another one, but there was a book that had a future version of the catholic church and there was an order of St. Murphy dedicated to using technology to help keep Murphy's law from manifesting.

Would this be close:?

The aliens are actually 'Tanu' and resemble Tuatha Dé Danann from Celtic mythology. And there is talk of gigantic crystaline spaceships that have powerfull phychhic powers.

No, this is not it. I'm familiar with the Pliocene saga, and it's really not even close to what I'm looking for. But thanks for the reply, sometimes I think the only way I'll find it is to write my own version and then wait to get sued for plagiarism.....

I have no idea but, given the Irish theme, perhaps try asking this Irish authors fansite on the chance they know?

This sounds a bit like the Warlock books by Christopher Stasheff

Could this be Patricia Kennealy's "Keltiad" series? I'm not familiar with it myself but apparently she blends fantasy and science fiction elements with Celtic myth.

Splendid. I'd like to pretend that my encyclopedic knowledge of Science Fiction was to thank but the truth is that "Tuatha De Danann in space" only returns one hit on Google and so i figured that was a lead worth pursuing.

Well, it did only return one. Now, of course, it returns two hits.
