Well now, all our learned suppositions have been laid low by David Reich's book on "ancient DNA". As in taken from ancient skellingtons.

He says the people that built newgrange and stonehenge were "replaced" by iron-agers, maybe after some sort of collapse when there was a bad climatic event around 1170 BC. Replaced, covers a multitude of sins, doesn't it?

So all our "gaelic" squiggle designs from the stones around newgrange and lough crew were appropriated by our historians in the 1800s, who thought there was one race and culture going back to forever.

The language, being indo-european, came from the steppes of russia. Not from spain with its "milesians".

The original language spoken on this island was something like Basque.
The island was peopled originally by hunter gatherers who after the retreat of the ice sheets northward made their way northward along the western coasts of Spain and France eventually arriving in Britain and then forward to Ireland possibly via the East Ulster land bridge.
The Spanish/North African/Meditteranean connection is indisputable concerning the origins of the first settlers in Ireland.

So what??? We can all go back to Adam and Eve.

The salient point here is that our Gaelic political and social order, and associated culture, originated/evolved in Ireland during prehistoric times - our Irish language in writing is the oldest vernacular literature in Western Europe.

We Irish are Gaels, and our country is named in our stead. We are a distinct people - and our country is one of the oldest in the world.

Try again Unionist.
That's the problem, we don't all go back to Adam and Eve. Eve lived millenia before Adam.

We had a gaelic culture from the pre-roman times to 1171 or 1603, and it had its many glories, but newgrange and lough crew aren't included in them. Too early. I didn't like to read that, shed a tear, but there it is.

We are very average europeans, and no there wasn't an Irish Race. We have to allow that the theories of the 1700s and 1800s were just theories until they were proved, or disproved, and it's not a huge surprise that some have been disproved.

I don't don't see how calling anyone a "Unionist" can change the facts, and so your beliefs are just that, beliefs, that we all adopted because they sounded right, or sounded nice, at the time. Like the Flat Earth theory or the immaculate conception, some of us can move on.

3,000-odd years on the island, I'm happy with that. We don't put out milk for the fairies any more.

For all your bullsh1t, the fact remains - our Gaelic political and social order, and associated culture, originated/evolved in Ireland during prehistoric times - our Irish language in writing is the oldest vernacular literature in Western Europe.

We Irish are Gaels, and our country is named in our stead. We are a distinct people - and our country is one of the oldest in the world.

Ireland existed as a Nation and Kingdom, and was recognised as such throughout the western world - with its own High King, language, writing (both Ogham and 18 letter alphabet) - laws, the very essence of a unitary State, long before the 10th century upstart England even existed.

When the Roman Empire fell, we Irish saved the western world by opening centres of learning throughout Europe - meanwhile, your people in Britain were walking around on their knuckles.

Earliest now known human settlement in Ireland is 12500 years ago.

Celts and Gaels arrived much much later and any description of the 'Irish" as such is innacurate.

Indeed these Celts and Gaels were all very much invaders and colonisers little different to the subsequent Normans and English

Of course we had a system, but it changed and changed again. Otherwise we wouldn't begin to understand the concept of a republic.

Gaelic is an indo-european language that originated from the steppes of russia, along with legal systems similar to the brehon law. Horses and chariots. This is our true ancient ancestry and I'm OK with it. But it doesn't include newgrange.

What's the problem TB?

Hahahaha - Russian Gaelic. I heard it all now.

Again, our Gaelic political and social order, and associated culture, originated/evolved in Ireland during prehistoric times - our Irish language in writing is the oldest vernacular literature in Western Europe.

Irish law is the oldest, most original, and most extensive of the European legal systems. It is a unique legal inheritance, an independent indigenous system of advanced jurisprudence that was fully evolved by the eighth century.

We Irish are Gaels, and our country is named in our stead. We are a distinct people - and our country is one of the oldest in the world.

Here fool - we can all go back to the big bang.

Don't confuse and conflate Celts with Gaels. We Gaels were obviously not invaders and colonisers.

Indo-european, like it says on the tin.

Check out this map on proto-celtic...



...from which we get

Ériu - Wikipedia


soft landing... now TB it's time for you to go and put out that little saucer of milk.
A lot about the Celts - nothing about Russian Gaelic. Hahahahaha

Probably because Gaelic political and social order, and associated culture, originated/evolved in Ireland.

We Irish are Gaels, and our country is named in our stead. We are a distinct people - and our country is one of the oldest in the world.

Make sure the milk is unpasteurised, otherwise they'll not want it.
Here fool - let's see a sample of that Russian Gaelic you claim exists???

It's amazing the bullsh1t Unionists will concoct in their effort to disenfranchise us Irish from our own country.
