Footnote: Early Bronze Age Irish and the “Black Irish” today

by Richard L. Thornton, Architect and City Planner

This painting was done by a forensic artist, based on the genetic profile of an Early Bronze Age Irish Man from around 2000 BC. Ireland and southern England were almost depopulated around 2,345 BC by a 20 year long rain storm. According to the ancient “Annals of the Four Masters,” the whole of Ireland had to be evacuated at this time,” stated Professor Mike Baillie (Queen’s University in Belfast) on an RTE television documentary about the flood. The island was repopulated by a maritime people from Galicia.

The earliest occupants of Ireland could well have been American Indians or Eurasians. The earliest “stonehenges” were in Canada! People started building them in the British Isles about 500 years after the oldest one in Alberta. Dr. Gordon Freeman of the University of Alberta has found identical artifacts on both sides of the Atlantic during that period . . . with the oldest being in North America.

It is currently believed that the Gails (or Goidals) arrived in Ireland around 100 BC. However, some other tribes, related to the Gaels, arrived in Ireland at the beginning of the Iron Age of around 700 to 500 BC.

  2. I wish I could remember the title, but years ago, I read a novel based on what we know of the Celtic invasion of the British isles. The original people were short, dark, and not aggressive. All across norther Europe, Celts simply moved in and raided them for slaves. A young man rebelled after losing his wife and family, and began a war of terror on the Celts. Soon, he was freeing slaves who also worked to stop Celtic aggression. Celts began to refer to the people as Elfin.

    St. Pádraig/Patrik married an elfin woman, though her people were considered demonic.

    The ancestors, American Indians/Cherokee, called elves tsi-ge-O, Beloved Way Holy.

  3. Genetic testing has revealed that the Celts never reached the British Isles – only their culture. It has always been assumed that Gael was another way of saying Celt, but it turns out that Celts were Germanic and the Gaels came from Iberia.

      1. What makes an Irishman? How many invasions? It states Celts were in Ireland. Gaels arrived about 100BC.
