Kiss Me…I’m Irish

Something to think about while you are held up like a bank robber waiting for the all clear.

That line becomes popular, very popular, at least once a year….on 17 March or St. Patrick’s Day……and we have a long history of the Celts and Irish on the island.

You might be Irish but you are not Celtic.

But some recent research has shown that the Irish are not all that Celtic……

The chance discovery of ancient bones under an Irish pub in County Antrim in the mid-2000s has cast doubt over whether Irish people are actually related to the ancient Celts at all. 

In 2006, Bertie Currie was clearing land to make a driveway for McCuaig’s Bar on Rathlin Island off Antrim when he noticed a large, flat stone buried beneath the surface.

Currie realized that there was a large gap underneath the stone and investigated further. 

“I shot the torch in and saw the gentleman, well, his skull and bones,” Currie told the Washington Post. 

He eventually found the remains of three humans and immediately called the police

Instead, Irish ancestors may have come to Ireland from the Bible lands in the Middle East. They might have arrived in Ireland from the South Meditteranean and would have brought cattle, cereal, and ceramics with them.

Fascinating!

Another cultural find that may have originated in the Middle East….one pet peeve…..please stop calling them Bible lands…there was more history before that era….stop trying to prove things that do not exist…..use events to prove your beliefs not beliefs to try and prove events.

Be Well and Be Safe!
