Native Irish vs. Celtic   3 comments

No this is not an act of war or complaining about people doing things differently to me, I leave that shit to certain “Wicca” groups, (hello Richmond, New York).

A little history for you. Round about 10,000 years ago, a small tribe of wanderers were following the Ice receding Northwards, and came to a Land Bridge, (although if they knew it was land land Bridge, who knows) crossed over and for a while followed the coastline West, came to another Land Bridge at the edge of the Ice. These Nomads settled here as the Ice retreated North for a while, Basic Flint Mining, Fishing, Hunting (Wild Boar, Hare, Wild Fowl) and Foraging among the plants and finding seeds and berries and nuts.

 

Following the Animals who were going North when the Ice had gone, along the Eastern Coast, they settled for brief periods including at the mouth of a river Estuary, until they hit the North East Corner of the Island, where they found a better quality type of Flint. Here they stayed, and spread back South, and back across the Sea to the Mountainous area (Wales) where some of the tribe stayed.

 

Fast Forward 9,000 years and another group, similar to the first tribe, but different, settled on the East Coast of what is now England, and spread West, until they reached the boundaries of the Lands of the First Tribe, where they traded and raided as the mood took them. The first tribe were Native Britons, (Irish and Welsh and Picts), the second tribe were Celts from Gaul, and further Eastward in Europe. Due to certain facts both tribes were once one tribe, back in the mists of time, one part going East, one going West.

 

The Celts never settled in Ireland in anything like large numbers, only small family groups. This we can tell through the DNA of the Irish who live in the North West Corner Of Ireland, (Counties Derry, Donegal, Fermanagh, Sligo) where up to 96% of the population have the “Irish” Gene. So from this we know that the Irish settled and stayed, and have never left.
