some irish history

Posted by vickie | 6:01 AM | 1 comments »

THE STORY OF THE IRISH RACE

The Irish race of today is popularly known as the Milesian Race, because the genuine Irish (Celtic) people were supposed to be descended from Milesius of Spain, whose sons, say the legendary accounts, invaded and possessed themselves of Ireland a thousand years before Christ.


The races that occupied the land when the so-called Milesians came, chiefly the Firbolg and the Tuatha De Danann, were certainly not exterminated by the conquering Milesians. Those two peoples formed the basis of the future population, which was dominated and guided, and had its characteristics moulded, by the far less numerous but more powerful Milesian aristocracy and soldiery. All three of these races, however, were different tribes of the great Celtic family, who, long ages before, had separated from the main stem, and in course of later centuries blended again into one tribe of Gaels - three derivatives of one stream, which, after winding their several ways across Europe from the East, in Ireland turbulently met, and after eddying, and surging tumultuously, finally blended in amity, and flowed onward in one great Gaelic stream.

The possession of the country was wrested from the Firbolgs, and they were forced into partial serfdom by the Tuatha De Danann (people of the goddess Dana), who arrived later. Totally unlike the uncultured Firbolgs, the Tuatha De Dannann were a capable and cultured, highly civilised people, so skilled in the crafts, if not the arts, that the Firbolgs named them necromancers, and in course of time both the Firbolgs and the later coming Milesians created a mythology around these.

In a famed battle at Southern Moytura (on the Mayo-Galway border) it was that the Tuatha De Danann met and overthrew the Firbolgs. The Firbolgs noted King, Eochaid was slain in this great battle, but the De Danan King, Nuada, had his hand cut off by a great warrior of the Firbolgs named Sreng. The battle raged for four days. So bravely had the Firbolgs fought, and so sorely exhausted the De Dannann, that the latter, to end the battle, gladly left to the Firbolgs, that quarter of the Island wherein they fought, the province now called Connaught. And the bloody contest was over.

well today has been an interesting day. the morning was kind of rough and I felt depressed a wee bit. I feel better now. I added some more stitch markers to my etsy store. maybe one day ill get a sale from someone I dont know lol. I was at Michael's today and met a very nice gal who invited me to their stitch n bitch at barnes and nobles. the reason we started talking was because she noticed my namaste zuma bag that I won from Hip Mountain Moma .I told her how I got it and she was like wow! thats really neat I have never seen a knitting purse like that. So she thought it was cool. I gave her my business card so she can call me if she likes or sees some stitch markers she likes. lol
Here is my Namaste Zuma bag:



















and here is a picture of the Namaste Magnetic case:













I absolutely love the color. My favorite color.
this afternoon the bean and I went to the park so he could go run around a little bit. he had a good time. after we got done at the park; went by chic fila and got dinner. got home took my keys out of my ignition and put them in my purse. Locked the door got out to get little man. Got him and locked my purse keys and food in the car. My neighbor gave me a coat hanger to try to get the door open and no luck. k didnt help me much said something about being a martyr (i didnt understand that). I told him dinner was in the car and he had the door open in 5 minutes. so nice of him to care after I tell him there is food in the car. grrr crappy day seriously. so anywhos made these stitch markers tonight:











these are for sale at my etsy store: vicki's knitting things along with some other nice stitch markers. well im signing off for now. will write more later.

I was happy. my hat was on the news. so anywho it was a long day cold brrrr the last six hours i just wanted to go to my car and leave.
