Ancient Ireland #2

Its history is long


                     From Hermon Hoeh's
                 Compendium of World History


The following chart gives the list of kings unaltered and without
need of restoration, from the Domestic Annals as preserved by
O'Flaherty in his Ogygia. Both the dates and lengths of reign are
accurately preserved. The abbreviations after the names indicate
from which branch of the Milesians the king descended. "Er." is
the line of Ghedhe the Ereamhon; "Eb." is Ebher, brother of
Ghedhe the Ereamhon; "Ith" is the line of Ith or Itha, brother of
Miledh or Mileadh; "Ir" is the line of Ir, another (uncrowned)
brother of Eber and Gede.

Viking invasions ravaged Ireland in 843 under Niall III Caille.
While Niall was reigning, his son Aodh VII Finnlaith presented
(in 843) the Lia Fail permanently to the king of Scotland, whose
daughter he married.(See O'Flaherty's Ogygia.) The Scottish king,
Kenneth mac Alpin (843-858), thereby became full heir to the now
bankrupt Irish line which was forced to submit to Viking rule.
The throne line was thus transferred to Scotland, from whence it
would be transferred, in a few centuries, to England.

THE THRONE IN SCOTLAND

In 503 a migration to Scotland established the direct line of
Eremon in the new land.

With this outline the essentials of Irish history are restored.
For details of the reigns of each king of Ireland consult
Keating's History of Ireland, or O'Flaherty. The modern idea that
the Irish were illiterate, and that their history is all myth, is
itself a modern myth. The real myths circulating in the name of
Irish history are generally limited to attempts on the part of
the Catholic Church to hide the identity of the racial descent of
the Irish nation. In fact, the only reason for ever inventing
myth is to hide, obscure or pervert some evidence or truth. Once
the source of Truth -- the Bible -- is manifest, the difference
between myth and fact becomes readily apparent.
