from the top of Scotland to the South of Morocco.....we are a boat-going Atlantic people. The gaelgeors in the Donegal pub look darker than indigenous people anywhere North of the pyrnees or the Alps.

the so-called Black irish. A world apart from the german-english you would meet in Kent.

OP, there is no need for a thread for every single video when one will suffice. All video threads merged into this one.

my understanding of bolg was a satchel, a leather carry bag, an over-the-shoulder jobby. And that characterised these people.
Well when I learnt Irish at school the word for stomach was an Bolg.
Pronounced” Bullig”
Other variations are “Bolc”
We all used laugh derisively at the Fir Bolgs as it seemed and still seems daft to characterize an invader by an outsize belly.

The Irish word for a bag or satchel is “Mala”
