End of book one- maybe.  Book 2 needs to be written, but I can also expand more on the life in Bronze Age ireland. Let me know what you think if it is worth proceeding.  :D

Ireland - Irish History  - 
 
The worship of Crom Dubh or Crom Cruiach, is said to have been brought to Ireland by Tigernmas, sometimes called Tiernmas. Irish annals say that he was a fourth century king and that he was one of the last kings of the Formorians. Tigernmas is sometimes referred to as the “culture king”, because it is said that he was the one who brought aspects of civilisation to Ireland including the cereal farming, smithing of gold and silver, the dyeing of fabrics, and the making of music and art.

What if the old Irish legends about Tigernmas the king of Fomorians bringing agriculture and metal work to Ireland are true? Except that Tigernmas didn't live in the 4th century ad, he lived in the 3rd or 4th millennium bc. Is it possible that the Irish oral tradition has preserved records of events that happened 5000, 6000 years ago? Is it possible that metallurgy arrived in Ireland earlier than we think, at the same time when grain farming arrived? Or did grain farming arrive in Ireland later than we think, at the same time with metallurgy?

You can read more about this here:

Courtyard of the former Castle Archdale Manor House which was built (foundations first laid) in 1773 and knocked down in 1977 due to state of dereliction.

Manor House stood in the gap between the courtyard buildings, in the centre of this picture

Missing person cases, like Karen Buckley’s, are rarely easy copes. Yet, the search comes to an end for this Glasgow student, as her remains were possibly found.

I am so saddened to hear of the untimely death of Dr Muireann Ní Bhrolcháin, Senior Lecturer in Early Irish, Maynooth University, who passed away yesterday after a short illness. My thoughts and condolences to her family and friends.
She will be remembered by many of us as an activist & a campaigner to preserve the Hill of Tara and the Skreen Valley as a living monument of Irish cultural heritage.
