Over the Centuries since Agnoman and his tribes were excuded from Citia for killing the Citian king they went in 60 ships westward through the Narrows to the Pontus Sea, the North Sea and spent some years in the Caucusus Mts of Russia.
Than to Gotha for 8 generations [aproximatly 200 years].
From Eibear Scota to Bratha of Espainia.

From there they went north by sea out of that peninsula called Galicia for Ireland under the children and sons of Milead.

Milead the thousand ,also called Biscam [crooked vise] and Galamh [ray hand], had 6 sons who sailed to Ireland to conquest the current ascendant tribes, the tuatha de Danannan peoples.

These nomadic and mercenary soldiers, decendants of Feini Fearsaid of Citia in the east and EiberScot* the brother of Eogain both the children of Niul or Neall.

EiberScot was the ancestor of Peleg father of Abraham and Eogain the ancestor of Muiredach of the Sea, 890 BC.

Of Agnoman mic and the Brigante m Brata of Gailicia through Eireman the son of Milead who married Tea the daughter of Lugaid m Ith the child of Breogain m Brata.






Ith had gone to Ireland from Gailicia[Gelicah] and had raised suspicion among the Danan rulers there that his intentions were to reconoiter that land for an impending attach.
They subsequently killed Ith and sent his body back to Gailicia.

The 6 sons of Milid and Ir the son of Ith went to avenge this death and arrived at the southwest of Ireland.

The innicial attach was diverted by the island forces which created a truce with the flotilla to send them beyond the 9th wave of the Atlantic Ocean.

Eiber, the Admiral of the Fleet, agreed to this and the flotilla was partially distroyed off the coast of Ireland by a serious storm in the south west Atlantic.

Only 3 of the sons of Milead landed at Valencia Island,
Aimergin and
Eiber himself.

Colpa was killed. Ir Drowned, Donn and Firioch all died at sea in the storm.
Dil drowned with her husband Donn as did FearRuad
on this expedition to avenge the kiling of Ith.

The battle of Sliabe Mis was fought and the Battle of Tailte at the Colpa river and the island divided between the brothers.
Eireamon got the north with 5 chiefs under him.
Eiber the south half of the Island.

Aimergin, Goistean, Seadga ,Sobairce and Suirge were chiefs under the north.

Amergin at Turloch Inis BearMor
Goistean Cathair Nair
Seadge Dun Deilginse - Cuala
Sobairce Dun Sobairce - for IR
Suirce Dun Eadair.
Eireman Himself at Raith Beiteach on the Feoir River in Osruige at Leinster.

This created 6 forts belonging to the north holding.

Eibear, who had Admiralty of the fleet,
Himself at Raith Eoamhain
Caioce at Dunn Inn
Monntan at Carriage - BladRuide
En mic Oige Ard Suir
Fulman at Carraig Feada

Again 6 forts for the south.

The princes rule.

The Danannans remained in the country under the new chiefs and a treaty of peace was made between the Melisians and the old tribes given control of lands west of Shannon river and a pillar erected to commemorate that event of peace betwen the 2 people.

Those of Fenius Fearsaid decendants, and those of Lir , Manannan, Mider, Dagda ,Ogma, Bodg Dearg, and Aongus Og, along with Dian Cetch and the other famous personalites of the Danannan peoples, Eire,Banba and Fodla, the 3 queens of that rule.
Nuada, when he conquered and killed Erc's son Eocaid ,last Fir Builge king ,and now subservient people or intermarried with the Danannans.

Again they became recombinants though marraige and childen of the indiginous peoples and the nobles with the Danan and now the Milisian tribes of 1000 soldiers coming to the green and prosperous land of Erinn.

It is thus said of such persons like Bodg Dearg and Aongus Og who created the son Donn ,father of Diarmaid ,that the race of Irish arose consisting of traits still distinct and this melding of the 3 prominent tribal groups, a race that occupied the island from earliest times.

Thoughout these eras, Ireland was a land of plenty in fresh fish, honey, milk from cattle; sheep, grain and other corns such as oats and barley and raipe with its bright yellow fields.

Its woods were full of nuts wild boar, red deer and its waters plentiful.
Its climate usually mild.

The waters and lakes and rivers of Ireland were frequently arising at this period, or changing course and during this time Eiremon ruled himself for 14 years after the Battle of Aiorgeadros and the Battle of Ui Failge with his brother Eiber, he ruled 14 years.
Eiber was killed at Giesill.

Eiremon is buried at Raith Beiteach in the north where he had located his fortress and his son Irail Faid ,child of Muimne a daughter of Eireamon is buried at Maig Morde.

The son of Eiber, Con Maoil, was king for 30 years in the south and fought 25 battles wih his uncle Eireamon.

He was killed at the Battle of Aonac Maca by Eiber Mic Tigearmas, the great grandson of Irail Faid M Eireamon which gives us the 4 generations derbfine.

Con Maiol is buried at Aonac Maca called Con Maels Mound.

His son Eocaid Fadbearglas mic Con Maoil m Eibear Fionn mic Milead mic Breagain m Brata of Spain ruled 20 years and was killed at the Battle of Carman at Cinnsealla in the Southeast.
His men carried sharp edges spears of a blue green hue.

Faobarglas had a son called MoFebis and his son Eocaid Mumo.

The battle of Sliabe Bealgadir was fought and Enna Airgtioc, Mumo's son became the souths king for 27 years.
silver Sheilds were made.
[Mumna had a great expanse of silver mines in the south mountains.]

Eanna was killed at the Battle of Raigne.

20 generations later the mic designation listed the grandson only, 3 generations.

In 703BC the ruler of Ireland was,
Ollam Fodla mic Fiacaid Fionn Scotach mic Seadna mic Airt mic Airtru mic Eibric mic Eibear mic Ir mic Milid [or Ith the brotherof Milead].

Ollam sets a recorded date .
Ruled sucessfully for 30 years from Teamair[Tara].
Established the Feis of Tara.
Held assemblys, made laws for the land, married a Fir Builge princess and died in peace.

He created the Tsalter of Tara, Annals and Records, made in and confirmed by the Assembly.
He held seanchus of stories, music and games, kept a Roll of Tara of the tribes, had a marshall of the house and 'seanca' a shield bearer.

Eocaid Ollam Fodla was king of Ireland at the time of Maon, Liongseach Labraid m Cairbre, son of Sarah .

Maen= Maoin and Roitertaig [Rotan or Deman] and Dian [Donn] a Gailenga.

Ollam was king 40 years from 703BC till 743BC
He had 5 sons.

The story or saga of the Danannans is only the talesend of their reign in Eirinn as it is relayed to us by the Milisain Army and the history which is most complete is the Milisian tribes as the Mili had many confrontations and battles and as they still sing this day,
'Soldiers are we . Pledged to fight for Ireland'.

The tales of Midir and his taking of his princess Etain into the air at a feis of Beltain.
The tales of the champion Dagda and his son Aongus Og .
The remembrance of Manannain, their progenator, a fisherman and sea man.
The tribes taking their living from the plentiful sea.
Nuada Nect ni Damair an Flaith--
washing from the sea
a living from the sea
the prince ,OCean [OCaun]
the Ce the lake Loch of water
uisce-it is the sea.

The great battle of these sea living people over the Fir Builge people of Erc at the Cath Tailtui and the enumeration of this battle and the second Tailtui battle to ward of the invading Fomoir and the 3 epic queens, Eire Banba and Fodla, with the invading army of 1 thousand mili solders from Breogain and Gailitia.

These stories of the bringing of the Lia Fail screaming rock to tell the true prince of the tribe.
The great cauldron pf plenty they brought from Muiris of the 4 cities
in their ships from the sea and the sword and the spear of victory.

These Fear Dea[FarDau] and the female battle godesses Badb ,Macha the beheader, and Morigain the Crow, and their counter parts the Queens. Daughters of Dadga the champion Eire,Fodla and Banba, by whose names the island was often called, and the great mystery of the childrin of Lir.

Aoba, the eldest married to Lir by her father Bodg Derg of Aran and her child FionNuala and Aod. Than twins Fiacha and Conn.
The births of which killed her.

Thus Bodg Derg sent his second daugher, Aoife.

But Aoife was jelous of the children of Lir by her sister Aobe, who after a time took the childcren and turned them into swans to be so for 900 years.

She, called a witch by Fion Nuala.

300 years at Lochdair Rech[Der Rauch]

300 years on Sruth na Maoile [Maele] sea of Alba and Ireland.
The Irish sea.

300 years on Irrus Dommann and Inis Gluarre and so these swans, bird childen of Lir, did go for 9 centuries from the time of Lir and Bodg Derg m Aongus Og until they were finally restored to human form in the christain era by St Mocha O Mog at Inis Sluaire and his bell to free all from pain and mysery.

The children of Lir began their own sweet song of the Side and faery music that had been left them and next morning brother Mocha o Mog went to Loch Ean, lake of the birds, saw the swans and asked them if they were the children of Lir?

'We are indeed', they answered and the monk brought them to his own dwweling on land.

The birds were then chained.
Aod to Fionnualla and Con to Fiachia and they all lived there at his cell or monastery in peace.

But the king of Connacht, Lairgna m Colman m Cobthac was married to Deuch ingen Fingin. And she was a woman of the south married to a man of the north that Aoife had fortold.

Deuch desired to get possession of these birds and bade her husband to get them for her.

She refused to sleep in his bed until he did so.

Lairgnen sent for the birds but the monk refused him and this angered the king and he Himself went to Moca o Mog's residence and took hold of the birds, 2 in each hand.
But when he grasped them the bird feathers flew away and he held in his two hands wrinkled old men and one women having in them neither blood or flesh and he fled in fear.

Fionnualla asked for baptism for she understood they were to die now and she prepared for a grave for them.

She to be placed between the twin brothers, Conn and Fiacra and her own brother on top of her between her arms.

They were baptised and died and and a stone place over them in ogam.

Perhaps the dolman of poulnaBrone at the Burran, still mysterious to the visitor and occupants of the island today.

A statue of the chldren of Lir is placed on upper OConnell St at Dorsey road in the Garden of Remembrance where today there are many protestors and assemblies in informal understandings as they once gathered under noble rulers and inaguarated kings at the hill of Tara.

And so verification of 1000 years of rule in Erinn by the tuat de Danan tribe breathe of the Danu.

* The 'cota' were archers.
Eibear S'cota would mean Top archers -very skilled. [Aubar S'cota]
The Welsh were Archers
