The Nemedians continued in Ireland for two hundred and seventeen years; within which time a colony of theirs went into northern parts of Scotland, under the conduct of their leader Brittan Maol, from whom Britain takes its name, and not from 'Brutus' as some persons believed.
            From Magog were also descended the Belgarian, Belgian, Firbolgian colony that succeeded the Nemedians, 3266 Anno Mundi (after creation), and who first erected Ireland into a Monarchy. (According to some writers, the Formorians invaded Ireland next after the Nemedians).
            This Belgarian or Firvolgian colony continued in Ireland for 36 years, under nine of their Kings; when they were supplanted by the Tuatha-de-Danans (which means, according to some authorities, 'the people of the god Dan', who they adored), who possessed Ireland for 197 years, during the reigns of nine of their Kings; and who were then conquered by the Gaelic, Milesian, or Scotic Nation (the three names by which the Irish people were known), 3500 Anno Mundi.
            This Milesian or Scotic Irish Nation possessed and enjoyed the Kingdom of Ireland for 2885 years, under 183 Monarchs; until their submission to King Henry II of England, 1186 AD.
            The following nations, according to some of the ancient Irish Chroniclers, was colonised by:

AKA Fenius Farsa
BIRTH:  Unknown
DEATH:  in Scythia (Central Europe).
Notes for Phoeniusa Farsaidh (Fenius Farsa):  Phoeniusa Farsaidh (or Fenius Farsa) was King of Scythia, at the time Ninus ruled the Assyrian Empire; and, being a wise man and desirous to learn the languages that not long before confounded the builders of the Tower of Babel, employed able and learned men to go among the dispersed multitude to learn their several languages; who sometime after returning well skilled in what they went for, Phoeniusa Farsaidh erected a school in the valley of Senaar, near the city of Aeothena, in the 42nd year of the reign of Ninus; where upon, having continued their with his younger son Niul for twenty years he returned home to his kingdom, which, at his death, he left to his eldest son Nenuall; leaving to Niul no other patrimony than his learning and the benefit of the said school.

15. Niul
BIRTH:  Unknown
DEATH:  in Campus Cyrunt, Red Sea.
He married Scota, daughter of Pharoah.

Notes for Niul: Niul after the death of his father, Phoeniusa Farsaidh (Fenius Farsa), returned to Scythia, continued some time at Aeothena teaching the languages and other laudable sciences, until upon report of his great learning he was invited into Egypt by

Pharoah, the King; who gave him the land of Campus Cyrunt, near the Red Sea to inhabit, and his daughter Scota in marriage; from whom their posterity are ever since called 'Scots'; but according to some annalists, the name 'Scots' is derived from the word 'Scythia'.
             It was this Niul that employed Gaodhal (Gael), son of Ethor to compose, or rather refine and adorn the language, called Bearla Tobbai, which was common to all Niul's posterity, and afterwards called 'Goadhilg' (or Gaelic), from the said Gaodhal who composed or refined it; and for his sake also Niul called his own eldest son "Gaodhal".
            "Antiquaries assert that the name of Gaodhal is from the compound word formed by 'gaoith' and 'dil', which means 'a lover of learning'; for 'gaoith' is the same as wisdom or learning, and 'dil' is the same as loving or fond."

16. Gaodhal Glas
AKA  Gathelus
BIRTH:  in Egypt
DEATH:  in Egypt.
Notes for Gaodhal Glas: Goadhal (or Gathelus), the son of Niul, was the ancestor of the 'Clan-na-Gael', that is, 'the children or descendants of Gaodhal.' In his youth this Gaodhal was stung in the neck by a serpent, and was immediately brought to Moses, who, laying his rod upon the wounded place, instantly cured him: whence followed the word 'Glas' to be added to his name, as Gaodhal Glas ('glas': Irish, green; Lat. 'glaucus'; Gr. 'glaukos), on account of the green scar which the word signifies, and which, during his life remained on his neck after the wound was healed.
And Gaodhal obtained a further blessing, namely- that no venomous beast can live any time where his posterity should inhabit; which is verified in Creta or Candia, Gothia or Getulia, Ireland, etc. The Irish chroniclers affirm that from this time Gaodhal and his posterity did paint the figures of Beasts, Birds, etc., on their banners and shields, (this shows the great antiquity of Irish heraldry) to distinguish their tribes and septs, in imitation of the Israelites; and that a 'Thunderbolt' was the cognisance in their chief standard for many generations after this Gaodhal.

Notes for Syruth: Syruth, soon after his father Asruth's death, was set upon by the Egyptians, on account of their former animosities towards their predecessors for having taken part with the Israelites against them; which animosities until then lay raked up in the embers, and now broke out in a flame to a degree, that after many battles and conflicts, wherein most of his colony lost their lives, Sruth was forced with the few remaining to depart the country; and after many traverses at sea, arrived at the island of Creta (now called Candia), where he paid his last tribute to nature.

19. Heber Scut
BIRTH:  Unknown
DEATH:  in Scythia(Central Europe).
Notes for Heber Scut: ('Scut': Irish, a Scot). Heber Scut, after the death of his father, Sruth, and a years stay in Creta, departed thence, leaving some of his people to inhabit the island, where some of their posterity likely still remain; "because the Island breeds no venomous serpent ever since." He and his people soon arrived in Scythia; where his cousins, the posterity of Nenuall (eldest son of Fenius Farsa), refused to allot a place of habitation for him and his colony, they fought many battles wherein Heber (with the assistance of some of the natives who were ill-affected towards their king), being always victor, he at length forced sovereignty from the other, and settled himself and his colony in Scythia, who continued there for four generations. Hence the epithet 'Scut', 'a Scot' or 'a Scythian,' was applied to this Heber, who is accordingly called Heber Scot.
            Heber Scot was afterwards slain in battle by Noemus the former king's son. Scythians, name given by ancient Greek writers to a group of Indo-European nomadic tribes who occupied Central Europe and Asia in the 8th century BC. The name was used for the Scythians proper, or Scolots, who inhabited the area, called Scythia, north of the Black Sea, between the Carpathian Mountains and the Don River, in what is now Moldova, Ukraine, and eastern Russia, and for all the nomadic tribes who inhabited the steppes between what is now Hungary to the mountains of Turkistan. The tribes are believed to have migrated to these areas from the region of the Altai Mountains, on the border of China, during the 8th century BC. Their speech was a form of Iranian, one of the branches of the Indo-European languages. Scythians kept herds of horses, cattle, and sheep, lived in tent-covered wagons, and were famed for their horsemanship and skill as archers. They developed a rich culture characterised by opulent tombs of Scythian kings and nobles, and bronze and gold objects of outstanding technical and artistic skill.
            In the early 7th century BC the Scythians advanced south of the Caspian Sea and invaded the kingdom of Media, but they were expelled in 625 by King Cyaxares. Shortly after the mid-4th century BC the Scythians on the plains to the north of the Black Sea were subdued and largely exterminated by the Sarmatians, who then gave their name to the region. In the 2nd century BC the Scythian tribes of Central Asia invaded the Parthian Empire, south-east of the Caspian Sea. About 130 BC they advanced eastwards into the kingdom of Bactria, in the region of modern Afghanistan, and in the 1st century BC they invaded western and northern India, where they remained powerful for five centuries.

Notes for Lamhfionn:  After the death of his father Agnon at sea in the Caspian Sea, Lamhfionn and his fleet remained at sea for some time, resting and refreshing themselves upon such islands as they met with. It was then that Cachear, their magician or Druid, foretold that there would be no end of their peregrinations and travel until they should arrive at the Western Island of Europe, now called Ireland, which was the place destined for their future and lasting abode and settlement; and that not they but their posterity after three hundred years should arrive there. After many traverses of fortune at sea, this little fleet with their leader arrived at last and landed at Gothia or Getlia - more recently called Lybia, where Carthage was afterwards built; and soon after landing, Lamhfionn died there.

In 1833, it was divided into the present provinces. Area, 29,434 sq. km  (9,464 sq. mi); population (1991) 2,731,669.

BIRTH:  in Galicia, Spain

Notes for Breoghan (Brigus): Breoghan (or Brigus was king of Galicia, Andalusia, Murcia, Castile, and Portugal - all of which he conquered. He built Breoghan's Tower or 'Brigantia' in Galicia, and the city of Brigansa or Briganza in Portugal - called after him; and the kingdom of Castile was then also called after him Brigia. It is considered that 'Castile' itself was so called from the figure of a castle which Brigus bore for his Arms on his banner.  Brigus sent a colony into Britain, who settled in that territory now known as the counties of York, Lancaster, Durham, Westmoreland and Cumberland, and, after him were called Brigantes; whose posterity gave formidable opposition to the Romans, at the time of the Roman invasion of Britain.

Notes for Bile: Bile was King of Galicia, Andalusia, Murcia, Castile, and Portugal, conquered by his father Breoghan, and son Galamh [galav] or Milesius succeeded him. This Bile had a brother named Ithe.  Bile, like Balor, is one of the names of the god of Death, i.e. of the Underworld. Bile, the father of the Milesians comes from Spain - the usual term employed by the later rationalising historians for the Land of the Dead.

36. Mileseus
BIRTH:  Galicia, Spain
DEATH:  Galicia, Spain.
He married Scota, daughter of Nectonibus, Pharoah of EGYPT 
Notes: Milesius, in his youth and during his father's life-time, went into Scythia, where he was kindly received by the king of that country, who gave his daughter in marriage,  and appointed him General of his forces. In this capacity Milesius defeated the king's enemies, gained much fame, and love of all the kings subjects. His growing greatness and popularity excited against him the jealousy of the king; who fearing the worst, resolved on privately despatching Milesius out of the way, for, openly, he dare not attempt it. Admonished of the king's intentions in his regard, Milesius slew him; and thereupon quitted Scythia and retired into Egypt with a fleet of sixty sail.
            Pharaoh Nectonibus, then king of Egypt, being informed of his arrival and of his great valour, wisdom, and conduct in arms, made him General of all his forces against the king of Ethiopia then invading his country. Here as in Scythia, Milesius was victorious; he forced the enemy to submit to the conqueror's own terms of peace. By these exploits Milesius found great favour with Pharoah, who gave him, being then a widower, his daughter Scota in marriage; and kept him eight years afterwards in Egypt.  During the sojourn of Milesius in Egypt, he employed the most ingenious and able persons among his people to be instructed in the several trades, arts, and sciences used in Egypt; in order to have them taught to the rest of his people on his return to Spain.  [The original name of Milesius of Spain was already mentioned ('Galamh' (“gall”: Irish, a stranger; “amh”, a negative affix), which means, 'no stranger': meaning he was no stranger in Egypt, where he was called 'Milethea Spaine,' which afterwards contracted to 'Mile Spain' (meaning the Spanish Hero), and finally to 'Milesius' ('mileadh': Irish, a hero; Lat. 'miles', a soldier).]

At length Milesius took leave of his father-in-law, and steered towards Spain; where he arrived to the great joy and comfort of his people, who were much harassed by the rebellion of the natives and by the intrusion of other foreign nations that forced in after his father's death, and during his long absence from Spain. With these and those he often met; and, in fifty-four battles, victoriously fought, he routed, destroyed, and totally extirpated them out of the country, which he settled in peace and quietness.  In he reign a great dearth and famine occurred in Spain, of twenty-six years continuance, occasioned, as well by reason of the former troubles which hindered the people from cultivating and manuring the ground, as for want of rain to moisten the earth; but Milesius superstitiously believed the famine to have fallen upon him and his people as a judgement and punishment from their gods, for their negligence in seeking out the country destined for their final abode, so long before foretold to Lamhfionn by Cachear their Druid or magician. The time limited by the prophesy for the accomplishment thereof being now nearly, if not fully, expired. To expiate his fault and to comply with the will of his gods, Milesius, with the general approbation of his people, sent his uncle Ithe, with his son Lughaidh (Luy), and one hundred and fifty stout men to bring them an account of those western islands; which, accordingly, arrived at the island since then called Ireland, and landing in that part of it now called Munster, left his son with fifty of his men to guard the ship, and with the rest travelled about the island. Informed among other things, that the three sons of Cearmad, called Mac-Cuill, MacCeaght, and MacGreine, did then and for thirty years before rule and govern the island, each one year in his turn; and that the country was called after the names of their three queens- Eire, Fodhla, and Banbha, respectively: one year called "Eire", the next "Fodhla", and the next "Banbha", as their husbands reigned in their regular turns; by which names the island is ever since indifferently called, but most commonly "Eire", because MacCuill, the husband of Eire, ruled and governed the country in his turn the year that the Clan-na-Mile (or the sons of Milesius) arrived and conquered

Ireland.  [Eire: Ancient Irish historians assert that this queen was the granddaughter of Ogma, who invented the Ogham Alphabet; and that it is after that Queen, that Ireland is always personated by a female figure!]
            And, being further informed that the three brothers were then at their palace at Aileach Neid, in the north part of the country, engaged in the settlement of some disputes concerning their family jewels, Ithe directed his course thither; sending orders to his son to sail about with his ship and the rest of his men, and meet him there. [Aileach Neid: This name may be derived from the Irish 'aileach,' a stone horse or stallion, or 'aileachta', jewels; and 'Neid,' the Mars of the Pagan Irish. In its time it was one of the most important fortresses in Ireland.]
            When Ithe arrived where the (Danan) brothers were, he was honourably received and entertained by them; and, finding him to be a man of great wisdom and knowledge, they referred their disputes to him for decision. That decision having met their entire satisfaction, Ithe exhorted them to mutual love, peace, and forbearance; adding much praise of their delightful, pleasant, and fruitful country; and then took his leave, to return to his ship, and go back to Spain.  No sooner was he gone than the brothers began to reflect on the high commendations which Ithe gave the Island; and suspecting his design of bringing others to invade it, resolved to prevent them, and therefore pursued him with a strong party, overtook him, fought and routed his men and wounded himself to death (before his son or the rest of his men left on ship-board could come to his rescue) at a place called, from that fight by his name, 'Magh Ithe' or 'The Plain of Ithe' (an extensive plain in the barony of Raphoe, county Donegal); whence his son, having found him in that condition, brought his dead and mangled body back into Spain, and there exposed it to public view, thereby to excite his friends and relations to avenge his murder.  And here I think it not amiss to notify what the Irish chroniclers, observe upon this matter, viz. - that all the invaders and planters of Ireland, namely, Partholan, Neimhedh, the Firbolgs, Tuatha-de-Danans, and Clan-na-Mile, where originally Scythians, of the line of Japhet, who had the language called 'Bearla-Tobbai' or Gaodhilg' [Gaelic] common amongst them all; and consequently not to be wondered at, that Ithe and the Tuatha-de-Danans understood one another without an interpreter - both speaking the same language, though perhaps with some differences in the accent.  The exposing of the dead body of Ithe had the desired effect; for, thereupon, Milesius made great preparations in order to invade Ireland - as well to avenge his uncle's death as also in obedience to the will of his gods, signified by the prophecy of Cachear, aforesaid. But, before he could effect that object, he died, leaving the care and charge of that expedition upon his eight legitimate sons by his two wives before mentioned.  Milesius was a very valiant champion, a great warrior, and fortunate and prosperous in all his undertakings: witness his name of 'Milesius' given him from the many battles (some say a thousand, which the word 'Mile' signifies in Irish as well as Latin) which he victoriously fought and won, as well in Spain, as in all the other countries and kingdoms he traversed in his younger days. Travelled into Scythia and Egypt where he was made an Army General by Pharoah Nectonibus. He returned to Spain and after several years sent exploration ships to the Western Isles of Europe. In those ships were one of his sons and his uncle. The murder of his uncle by some of the explorers, now proclaimed Kings of Ireland, caused Milesius to set about preparing to invade Ireland in revenge. However, his death caused this due to be left to his sons. They were Heber, Heremon and Amergin, the only three out of eight to survive that invasion commanded by 36 Chiefs each having his own ship with family and followers.

Notes for AMERGIN: Amergin, son of Miled, was a Poet (file) and this is often synonymous with Druid. He was slain  by Heremon dying without issue.  When the poet Amergin set foot upon the soil of Ireland it is said that he chanted a strange and mystical lay:

"I am the Wind that blows over the sea,
I am the Wave of the Ocean;
I am the murmur of the billows;
I am the Ox of the Seven Combats;
I am the Vulture upon the rock;
I am a Ray of the Sun;
I am the fairest of Plants;
I am a Wild Boar in Valour;
I am a Salmon in the Water;
I am a Lake in the plain;
I am the Craft of the artificer;
I am a Word of Science;
I am the Spear-point that gives battle;
I am the god that creates in the head of man the fire of thought.
Who is it that enlightens the assembly upon the mountain, if not I?
Who telleth the ages of the moon, if not I?
Who showeth the place where the sun goes to rest, if not I?"

Two other poems are attributed to Amergin, in which he
invokes the land and physical features of Ireland to aid him:

"I invoke the land of Ireland,
Shining, shining sea;
Fertile, fertile Mountain;
Gladed, gladed wood!
Abundant river, abundant in water!
Fish-abounding lake!"
(Both Poems are from translations by De Jubainvile in "Irish
Mythological Cycle")

            The Milesian host, after landing (in Ireland), advance to Tara, where they find the three kings of the Danaans awaiting them, and summon them to deliver up the island. The Danaans ask for three days' time to consider whether they shall quit Ireland, or submit, or give battle; and they propose to leave the decision, upon their request, to Amergin. Amergin pronounces judgement - "the first judgement which was delivered in Ireland." He agrees that the Milesians must not take their foes by surprise-they are to withdraw the length of nine waves from the shore, and then return; if they then conquer the Danaans the land is to be fairly theirs by right of battle. The Milesians submit to this decision and embark on their ships. But no sooner have they drawn off for the mystical distance of the nine waves than a mist and storm are raised by the sorceries of the Danaans-the coast of Ireland is hidden from their sight, and they wonder dispersed upon the ocean.  To ascertain if it is a natural or Druidic tempest which afflicts them, a man named Aranan is sent up to the masthead to see if the wind is blowing there also or not. He is flung from the swaying mast, but as he falls to his death he cries his message to his shipmates: "There is no storm aloft". Amergin, who takes lead in all critical situations, thereupon chants his incantation to the land of Erin.  The wind falls, and they turn their prows, rejoicing, towards the shore.
            A great battle with the Danaans at Telltown (named after the goddess Telta) then follows. The three kings and three queens of the Danaans, with many of their people, are slain, and the children of Miled-the last of the mythical invaders of Ireland-enter upon the sovereignty of Ireland. But the people of Dana do not withdraw. By their magic art they cast over themselves a veil of invisibility, which they can put on or off as they choose. There are two Irelands henceforward, the spiritual and the earthly. The Danaans dwell in the spiritual Ireland which is portioned out among them by their great overlord, the Dagda. Where the human eye can see but green mounds and ramparts, the relics of ruined fortresses or sepulchres, there rise fairy palaces of the defeated divinities; there they hold revels in eternal sunshine, nourished by the magic meat and ale that give them undying youth and beauty; and thence they come forth at times to mingle with mortal men in love or in war. The ancient mythical literature conceives them as heroic and splendid in strength and beauty. In later times, and as Christian influences grew stronger, they dwindle into fairies, the People of the Sidhe (pronounced 'Shee).  It means literally the People of the [Fairy] Mounds); but they have never wholly perished; to this day the Land of Youth and its inhabitants live in the imagination of the Irish peasant.

37. Heremon, King of Ireland
AKA:  Eochaidh I, The Heremon, King of
BIRTH:   Galicia, Spain
DEATH: 1683 BC, Ireland.
Notes: Eochaidh Heremon reigned with his brother Heber as the first Monarchs of Ireland. They began their reign in 1699 BC. After Heber's death Heremon reigned until 1683 BC.  After the death of their father King Milesius, the eight sons were neither forgetful nor negligent in the execution of their father's command to avenge the death of Ithe at the hands of the three Danaan kings in Ireland. But soon after his death, with a numerous fleet well manned and equipped, set forth from Breoghan's Tower or Brigantia (now Corunna) in Galicia, in Spain, and sailed prosperously to the coasts of Ireland or 'Inis-Fail,' (see below) where they met many difficulties and various chances before they could land: occasioned by the diabolical arts, sorceries, and enchantments used by the Tuatha-de-Danans, to obstruct their landing; for, by their magic art, they enchanted the island so as to appear to the Milesians or Clan-na-Mile in the form of a Hog, and no way to come to it (whence the island, among the many other names it had before, was called 'Muc-Inis' or 'The Hog Island'); and withal raised so great a storm, that the Milesian fleet was thereby totally dispersed and many of them cast away, wherein five of the eight brothers, sons of Milesius, lost their lives. That part of the fleet commanded by Heber, Heremon, and Amergin (the three surviving brothers), and Heber Donn, son of Ir (one of the brothers lost in the storm), overcame all opposition, landed safe, fought and routed the three Tuatha-de-Danan Kings at Slieve-Mis, and thence pursued and overtook them at Tailten, where another bloody battle was fought; wherein the three (Tuatha-de-Danan) Kings and their Queens were slain(see another account for the Queens below), and their army utterly routed and destroyed: so that they could never after give any opposition to the Clan-na-Mile in their new conquest; who, having thus sufficiently avenged the death of their great uncle Ithe, gained the possession of the country foretold to them by Cachear, some ages past through Lamhfionn.  ['Inis-Fail: Thomas More, in his Irish Melodies, commemorates this circumstance in the "Song of Inisfail":

      They came from a land beyond the sea
      And now o'er the western main
      Set sail, in their good ships, gallantly,
      From the sunny land of Spain.
      "Oh, where's the isle we've seen in our
     Our destined home or grave?"
     Thus sang they, as by the morning's
     They swept the Atlantic wave.

      And lo! where afar o'er ocean shines
      A spark of radiant green,
      As though in that deep lay emerald
      Whose light through the wave was seen.
      “Tis Inisfail - 'tis Inisfail!”
      Rings o'er the echoing sea;
      While, bending to heaven, the warriors
      That home of the brave and free.

     Then turned they unto the Eastern wave,
     Where now their Day-god's eye
     A look of such sunny omen gave
     As lighted up sea and sky.
     Nor frown was seen through sky or sea,
     Nor tear o'er leaf or sod,
     When first on their Isle of Destiny
     Our great forefathers trod.

Heber and Heremon, the chief leading men remaining of the eight brothers, sons of Milesius aforesaid, divided the kingdom between them (allotting a proportion of land to their brother Amergin, who was their Arch-priest, Druid, or magician; and to their nephew Heber Donn, and to the rest of their chief commanders), and became jointly the first of one hundred and eighty-three (or four) Kings or sole Monarchs of the Gaelic, Milesian or Scottish Race, that ruled and governed Ireland, successively, for two thousand eight hundred and eighty-five years from the first year of their reign, Anno Mundi three thousand five hundred, to their submission to the Crown of England in the person of King Henry the Second; who being also of the Milesian Race by 'Maude', his mother, was lineally descended from Fergus Mor MacEarca, first King of Scotland, who descended from the said Heremon - so that the succession may be truly said to continue in the Milesian Blood from before Christ one thousand six hundred and ninety-nine years down to the present time.  Heber and Heremon reigned jointly one year only, when, upon a difference between their ambitious wives, they quarrelled and fought a battle at Ardeath or Geshill (Geashill, near Tullamore in the King's County), where Heber was slain by Heremon; and, soon after, Amergin, who claimed an equal share in the government, was, in another battle fought between them, likewise slain by Heremon.
            Thus, Heremon became sole Monarch, and made a new division of the land amongst his comrades and friends, viz.: the south part, now called Munster, he gave to his brother Heber's four sons, Er, Orba, Feron, and Fergna; the north part, now Ulster, he gave to Ir's only son Heber Donn; the east part or 'Coigeadh Galian,' now called Leinster, he gave to Criomthann-sciath-bheil, one of his commanders; and the west part, now called Connaght, Heremon gave to Un-Mac0Oigge, another of his commanders; allotting a part of Munster to Lughaidh (the son of Ithe, the first Milesian discoverer of Ireland), amongst his brother Heber's sons.
            From these three brothers, Heber, Ir, and Heremon (Amergin dying without issue), are descended all the Milesian Irish of Ireland and Scotland, viz.: from Heber, the eldest brother, the provincial Kings of Munster (of whom thirty-eight were sole Monarchs of Ireland), and most of the nobility and gentry of Munster, and many noble families in Scotland, are descended.
            From Ir, the second brother, all the provincial Kings of Ulster (of whom twenty-six were sole monarchs of Ireland), and all the ancient nobility and gentry of Ulster, and many noble families in Leinster, Munster, and Connaught, derive their pedigrees; and, in Scotland, the Clan-na-Rory - the descendants of an eminent man named Ruadhri or Roderick, who was Monarch of Ireland for seventy years (viz., from Before Christ 288 to 218).
            Heremon, or Eremon, during his sole reign, was visited by a certain colony called by the Irish 'Cruithneaigh,' in English "Cruthneans' or 'Picts' who requested Heremon to assign them a part of the country to settle in, he refused, but gave them as wives the widows of the Tuatha-de-Danans slain in battle. He then sent the Picts with a strong party of his own forces to conquer the country then called 'Alba' but now 'Scotland'; conditionally, that they and their posterity should be tributary to the Monarchs of Ireland.
            From Heremon, the youngest of the three brothers, were descended one hundred and fourteen sole Monarchs of Ireland: the provincial Kings Heremonian nobility and gentry of Leinster, Connaught, Meath, Orgiall, Tirowen, Tirconnell, and Clan-na-boy; the Kings of Dalriada; all the Kings of Scotland from Fergus Mor MacEarca down to the Stuarts; and the Kings and Queens of England from Henry the Second down to the present time.
            This invasion, conquest, or plantation of Ireland by the Milesian or Scottish Nation took place in the Year of the World three thousand five hundred, or the next year after Solomon began the foundation of the Temple of Jerusalem, and one thousand Six hundred and ninety-nine years before the Nativity of our Saviour Jesus Christ; which according to the Irish computation of Time, occurred Anno Mundi five thousand one hundred and ninety-nine: therein agreeing with the 'Septuagint,' Roman Martyrologies, Eusebius, Orosius, and other ancient authors; which computation the ancient Irish chroniclers exactly observed in their Books of Reigns of the Monarchs of Ireland, and other Antiquities of that Kingdom; out of which the Roll of the Monarchs of Ireland, from the beginning of the Milesian Monarchy to their submission to King Henry the Second of England, a Prince of their own Blood, is exactly collected.  [As the Milesian invasion took place the next year after the laying of the foundation of the Temple of Jerusalem by Solomon, King of Israel, we may infer that Solomon was contemporary with Milesius of Spain; and that the Pharoah King of Egypt, who (1 Kings iii. 1,) gave his daughter in marriage to Solomon, was the Pharoah who conferred on Milesius of Spain the hand of another daughter Scota.]
            Milesius of Spain bore three Lions in his shield and standard, for the following reasons; namely that, in his travels in his younger days into foreign countries, passing through Africa, he, by his cunning and valour, killed in one morning three Lions; and that, in memory of so noble and valiant an exploit, he always after bore three Lions on his shield, which his two surviving sons Heber and Heremon, and his grandson Heber Donn, son of Ir, after their conquest of Ireland, divided amongst them, as well as they did the country: each of them bearing a Lion in his shield and banner, but of different colours; which the Chiefs of their posterity continue to this day: some with additions and differences; others plain and entire as they had it from their ancestors.
            Heber and Heremon turned to their brother Druid Amergin, when the victory over the Danaans was secure, for a judgement as to their respective tiles to sovereignty over Ireland. Eremon was the elder of the two, but Eber refused to submit to him. Thus Irish history begins, alas! with dissension and jealousy. Amergin decided that the land should belong to Eremon for his life, and pass to Eber after his death. But Eber refused to submit to the award, and demanded an immediate partition of the new won territory.
            This was agreed to, and Eber took the southern half of Ireland, "from the Boyne to the Wave of Cleena" while Eremon occupied the north. But even so the brothers could not be at peace, and after a short while war broke out between them. Eber was slain, and Eremon became sole King of Ireland, which he ruled from Tara, the traditional seat of that central authority which was always a dream of the Irish mind, but never a reality of Irish history.

42. Tighernmas Heremon, King of Ireland
BIRTH:  Ireland
ACCEDED:  1620 BC.
DEATH:  1543 BC, Magh Sleaght, now Fenagh, Mohill, Leitrim, Ireland.
Notes for Tighernmas Heremon: Tigernmas (or Tiernmas) was the son of Foll-Aich, of the Line of Heremon, was the 13th Monarch of Ireland and reigned for 77 years from 1620 BC. (Although according to Keating he reigned 50 years). He fought twenty-seven battles with followers of the family of Heber Fionn, all which he gained. In his reign gold was mined near the River Liffey and skilfully worked by 'Inchadhan.' This King also made a law that each grade of society should be known by the number of colours in its wearing apparel:- the clothes of a slave should be of one colour; those of a soldier two (according to Keating two was for a plebeian); the dress of a commanding officer to be of three colours (Keating states three were for a soldier or young lord); a gentlemen's dress, who kept a table for the free entertainment of strangers, to be of four colours (Keating says that four colours were reserved for a brughaidh or public victualler); five colours to be allowed for nobility or the chiefs (Keating states five is for the lord of a tuath or cantred); and the King, Queen, and Royal Family, as well as the Druids, historians, and other learned men to wear six colours (Keating states six is for an ollamh or chief professor of any liberal arts, and that of King and Queen). This information is taken from the ancient 'Book of Rights'. It is believed that this mode of dress may be the origin of the Scotch plaid.
             This King died, 1543 BC, on the Eve of 1st November, with two-thirds of his people of Ireland, at Magh Sleaght (or Field of Adoration), now 'Fenagh' in the Barony of Mohill, in the county of Leitrim, as he was adoring the Sun-God, 'Crom Cruach' (a quo Macroom) literally 'the crooked heap'. Historians say this Monarch was the first to introduce image worship in Ireland. This idol of Crom Cruach was worshipped up to the time of St. Patrick, by whom he was destroyed.  He is said to have introduced into Ireland the worship of Crom Cruach, on Moyslaught (The Plain of Adoration) and to have perished himself with three-fourths of his people while worshipping this idol on November Eve, the period when the reign of Winter was inaugurated. Crom Cruach was no doubt a solar deity, but no figure at all resembling him can be identified among the Danaan divinities. Tiernmas also, it is said, found the first gold mine in Ireland, and introduced variegated colours into the clothing of people. A slave might wear one colour, a peasant two, a soldier three, a wealthy landowner four, a provincial chief five, and an Ollav, or royal person, six. Ollav was a term applied to a certain Druidic rank; it meant much the same as 'doctor', in the sense of a learned man-a master of science. It is a characteristic trait that the Ollav is endowed with a distinction equal to that of a king.

            Was married to Caesair (or Kesair) daughter of the King of France and by her had  issue- twenty-two sons and three daughters. In order to prevent these children encroaching on each other he divided the Kingdom into twenty-five portions allotting to each their inheritance. By these divisions the taxes were collected for the following 300 years. All the sons died without issue except Laeghaire Lore (Laery) ancestor of all the Leinster Heremonians; and Cobthach Caolbhreagh (Covac) from whom the Heremonians of Leath Cuinn (Meath, Ulster and Connaght) derive their pedigree.
            Ugaine was, at length, slain by Badhbhchadh in 593 BC who failed to secure the fruits of his murder, the Irish Throne, being executed on the order of son Laeghaire Lore. In the early ages the Irish Kings made military expeditions into foreign countries.
                     Ugaine Mor, called by O'Flaherty, in his 'Ogygia,' "Hugonius Magnus," was contemporary with Alexander the Great; and is stated to have sailed with a fleet into the Mediterranean, landed forces in Africa, and also attacked Sicily; and having proceeded to Gaul, was married to Caesair, daughter of the King of the Gauls. Hugonius was buried at Cruachan.

This Covac did, and when Laery  arrived and bent over the supposed corpse Covac stabbed him to the heart, and slew also one of his sons, Ailill  (pronounced 'E-yill'), who attended him.

Clothfionn, daughter of Eochaidh Uchtleathan, who was a very virtuous lady. By him she had three children at a birth  Breas, Nar, and Lothar (the Fineamhis), who were slain at the battle of Dromchriadh ; after their death, a melancholy settled on the Monarch, hence his name "Feidhlioch." This Monarch caused the division of the Kingdom by Ugaine Mór into twenty-five parts, to cease; and ordered that the ancient Firvolgian division into Provinces should be resumed, viz., Two Munsters, Leinster, Conacht, and Ulster. He also divided the government of these Provinces amongst his favourite courtiers: — Conacht he divided into three parts between Fiodhach, Echaidh Allat, and Tinne, son of Conragh, son of Ruadhri Mór, No 62 on the "Line of Ir;" Ulster (Uladh) he gave to Feargus, the son of Leighe; Leinster he gave to Res, the son of Feargus Fairge ; and tile two Munsters he gave to Tighernach Teadhbheamach and Deagbadah. After this division of the Kingdom, Eochaidh proceeded to erect a Royal Palace in Conacht; this he built on Tinne's government in a place called Druin-na-nDruagh, now Craughan (from Craughan Crodhearg, Maedhbh's mother, to whom she gave the palace), but previously, Rath Eochaidh.

This collar was also caused to be worn by those who acted as witnesses, so as to test the accuracy of their evidence. This Monarch, Feredach, died a natural death at the regal city at Tara, 36 AD.

Tacitus states that one of the Irish princes, who was then an exile from his own country, waited on Agricola, who was then the Roman general in Britain, to solicit his support in the recovery of his kingdom. This was probably Tuathal, as he became Monarch of Ireland in 76 and Agricola, with the Roman legions, carried on war against the Caledonians about 75-78. He was slain by his successor Mal in 106. He married Baine, daughter of Sgaile Balbh, King of England.  Slain 106 by his successor, Mal.   With the help of his Grandfather, the King of Alba, and his friends, he went into Ireland and after scores of battles, restored the true royal blood and heirs to their respective provincial kingdoms.  He imposed a tremendous fine or "eric" upon the province of Leinster for the death of his only two daughters, Fithir and Darina, to be paid forever to the Monarchs of Ireland.  This fine was collected each year through the reigns of forty Monarchs, sometimes by sword and fire, until at last remitted at the pleading of St. Moling.  Tuathal married Baine, daughter of  Sgaile Balbh, King of England.

AKA  Cormac 'Longbeard' Macairt (King of Ireland)
BIRTH:  Ireland
DEATH:  266 AD, Cleitoch, on the Boyne, Ireland
Notes: 115th Monarch Choked on a fish bone 266 AD He was the wisest, most learned, and the best of any of the Milesian race before him, that ruled the country.  He had a retinue of  1150 persons, in daily attendance at his GREAT HALL of TARA. It was 300 feet long.  He ordained that there be 10 persons in constant attendance to him and all future Kings: A nobleman as companion; a judge; an  historian to declare and preserve the genealogies, acts, and occurrences of the nobility and gentry; a Druid to offer sacrifice, and presage good or bad omens; a poet to praise or dispraise everyone; a physician; a musician; and three stewards.  Seven years before his death, he became a Christian and forbade his Druids to worship their gods.
            King Cormac Mac Art was the 115th Monarch of Ireland; and was called "Ulfhada," because of his long beard. He was the wisest, most learned, and best of any of the Milesian race before him, that ruled the Kingdom. He ordained several good laws; wrote several learned treatises, among which his treatise on "Kingly Government," directed to his son Carbry Liffechar, is extant and extraordinary. He was very magnificent in his housekeeping and attendants, having always one thousand one hundred and fifty persons in his daily retinue constantly attending at his Great Hall at Tara; which was three hundred feet long, thirty cubits high, and fifty cubits broad, with fourteen doors in it. His daily service of plate, flagons, drinking cups of gold, silver, and precious stone, at his table, ordinarily consisted of one hundred and fifty pieces, besides dishes, etc., which were all pure silver or gold.
             He ordained that ten choice persons should constantly attend him and his successors— Monarchs of Ireland, and  never to be absent from him, viz.—
1. A nobleman to be his companion;
2. A judge to deliver and explain the laws of the country in the King's presence upon all occasions;
3. An antiquary or historiographer to declare and preserve the genealogies, acts, and occurrences of the nobility and gentry from time to time as occasion required;
4. A Druid or Magician to offer sacrifice, and presage good or bad omens, as his learning, skill, or knowledge would enable him;
5. A poet to praise or dispraise every one according to his good or bad actions;
6. A physician to administer physic to the king and queen, and to the rest of the (royal) family;
7. A musician to compose music, and sing pleasant sonnets in the King's presence when thereunto disposed; and
8, 9, and 10, three Stewards to govern the King's House in all things appertaining there unto.
This custom was observed by all the succeeding Monarchs down to Brian Boromha [Boru], the 175th Monarch of Ireland, and the 60th down from Cormac, without any alteration only that since they received the Christian Faith they changed the Druid or Magician for a Prelate of the Church.  What is besides delivered from antiquity of this great monarch is, that (which among the truly wise is more valuable than any worldly magnificence or secular glory whatsoever) he was to all mankind very just, and so upright in his actions, judgements, and laws, that God revealed unto him the light of His Faith seven years before his death; and from thenceforward he refused his Druids to worship their  idol-gods, and openly professed he would no more worship any but the true God of the Universe, the Immortal and Invisible King of Ages. Whereupon the Druids sought his destruction, which they soon after effected (God permitting it) by their adjurations and ministry of damned spirits choking him as he sat at dinner eating of salmon, some say by a bone of the fish sticking in his throat, AD 266, after he had reigned forty years. Of the six sons of Cormac Mac Art, no issue is recorded from any [of them], but from Cairbre-Lifeachar; he had also ten daughters, but there is no account of any of them only two— namely, Grace (or Grania), and Ailbh [alve], who were both successively the wives of the great champion and general of the Irish Militia, Fionn, the son of Cabhall [Coole]. The mother of Cormac MacArt was Eachtach, the daughter of Ulcheatagh. Cormac was married to Eithne Ollamhdha, daughter of Dunlang, son of Eana Niadh; she was fostered by Buiciodh Brughach, in Leinster.

            Eochaidh Dabhlen: the eldest son of Cairbre Lifeachar; was so called from his having been nursed in Dublin ("Dabhlen : Irish blad stream, referring to the dark colour, in the city of Dublin, of the water of the river Liffey, which flows through that city). Dubhlen: According to Connellan, the name "Dubblen" is the root of Dubhlana, which has been corrupted Eblana - the name of the city of Dublin, as marked on Ptolemy's Map of Ireland.  Another ancient name for the city of Dublin was Dromcollchille, which signifies " the back of the hazel wood."  Eochaidh Dubhlen was named to Alechia daughter of Updar, King of Alba, and by her had three sons, who were known as "The Three Collas"
            The Three Collas: The descendants of the Three Collas were called "The Clan Colla."  The word "Clan”, writes the Rev.  Dr. Todd, F.T.C.D., "signifies children or descendants.  The tribe being descended from some common ancestor, the Chieftain, as the representative of that ancestor, was regarded as the common father of the Clan, and they as his children. These three were: -1.  Muireadsch, or Colla  da Chrioch (or Facrioch), meaning Colla of the Two Countries" (Ireland and Alba); 2. Carioll, or Colla Uais (meaning  "Colla the Noble"), who was the 121st Monarch of Ireland; 3. Colia Meann, or " Colla the Famous." From the Three Collas descended many noble families: Among those descended from Colla Uais are - Agnew, Alexander, Donelan, Flinn, Healy, Howard (of England), MacAllister, MacClean, MacDonald, lords of the Isles, and chiefs of Glencoe; MacDonnell, of Antrim; MacDougald, MacDowell, MacEvoy, MacHale, MacRory, MaeVeagh (the ancient Mac Uais), MaeVeigh, MacSheehy, O'Brassil, Ousley, Rogers, Saunderson, Sheehy, Wesley, etc.
            "The barony of Cremome in Monaghan' )writes Dr. Joyce, " preserves the name of the ancient district of Crioch Mughdhorn or Cree-LNiourne, i.e., the country (crioch) of the people called Mughdorna, who were descended and Named from Mughdorna or Mourne), the son of Colia Meann."
            And among others descended from Colla Meann was Luighne {Lugny}, who was the ancestor of Spears; and who, by his wife Basaire of the Sept of the Decies of Munster, had a son called Fearbreach {farbra} ("farbreach": in Irish, the-fine-looking-man), who was bishop of Yovar, and who (according to the Four Masters) was fifteen feet in height!

This Crimthann was poisoned by his sister Mong Fionn, in hopes that Brian, her oldest son by Eochaidh, would succeed in the Monarchy.  To avoid suspicion she herself drank of the same poisoned cup which she presented to her brother;  but, notwithstanding that she lost her life by so doing, yet her expectations were not realised, for the said Brian and her other three sons by the said Eochaidh were laid aside (whether out of horror of  the mother's inhumanity in poisoning her brother, or otherwise, is not known), and the youngest son of Eochaidh, by Carthan Cais Dubh, was preferred to the Monarchy.
