Tracing Irish roots to Iberia.

I remember this being stated in some article I read.

I also heard, not read, that there was a migration to Ireland from the area of the Middle East before Christ.

It is my belief that the Celtic peoples of Brittain were not a wave of
invaders from the continent but the original inhabitants, in other words
Neolithic people who lived there from about 15000bc.

The Celtic language, lifestyle, religion  was a natural 'import' from
northern Spain etc  and take up by the existing Neolithic people of the
country. This was recently proved by in-depth DNA sampling, which found very
little 'foreign' DNA was introduced until much later with Roman, Saxon,
Viking invasions.

Great discussion! Thanks to all.

Dee.
