Ancient Dowth, Ireland one of the World’s Oldest Structures

Obviously from our investigations of the European Bronze Age, Ireland was an important cultural center on the great copper route from Bimini to Lewis and down through the Irish sea, Grand Manan in Wales and Cornwall as well.

This was good dairy land and grain came early as well. 

It mythological world would have been part of the Atlantean world which we have presumed to be informed by the Greek gods in particular.  Much of it is of a whole diverse yet united pantheon that needs to be better integrated.


Ancient Dowth, Ireland one of the World’s Oldest Structures

Dowth the Fairy Mound of Darkness is about the same size as Newgrange and Knowth ancient sites and was built in the same period over 5000 years ago before the pyramids or Stonehenge. It is one of the oldest structures on Earth and thought to have an astronomical purpose. Marie Moroney has been observing winter sunsets at Dowth since 1997. From the beginning of October to the end of February the sun sends its rays from the south-west into the chamber. As the sun appears progressively lower in the sky towards the winter solstice, the beam travels first over the sill stone, then enters the chamber and finally shines directly onto the stones at the back of the chamber. The Irish are one of the most ancient nations that I know of at this end of the world, and are from as mighty a race as the world ever brought forth-Edward Spenser. Motorways continue to be constructed over ancient cairns and cromlechs, stone circles continue to be leveled, and geomantically positioned monuments aligned to the constellations are replaced by shopping malls, housing estates, and corporate towers. The testimony of Megalithic Europe and of the Western origin of civilization continues to be deliberately obliterated so that men are condemned to believe what they are told from official sources about their history and origins.

The men who looked up into the night sky were really looking into themselves. The gnosis of the heavens is the gnosis of the soul. Civilizations erected upon astronomical principles are erected upon the infinite ancestral reservoir of knowledge within man’s own being. There are no stronger foundations. As the Hermetic motto states: As Above, So Below. Most historians accept that Egypt was a cradle of civilization, and that many cultural idioms and traditions come from there. What has yet to be understood, however, is the manner in which Egypt inherited its cultural elements from the lands of the North-West. …the Irish system is the oldest surviving complete codified legal system in Europe. Peter Berresford Ellis (The Druids)

The traditions of the Irish people are the oldest of any race in Europe north and west of the Alps, and they themselves are the longest settled on their own soil – Edmund Curtis (A History of Ireland: From Earliest Times to 1922)

It is known as Eire in the Gaelic language, which comes from the old Irish Eriu, the name of a daughter of the mother goddess Ernmas of the Tuatha De Danaan, the mystical pre-Celtic race of Ireland. Eriu and her sisters asked that they name the island after them. also known by the earlier name Tuath Dé (“tribe of the gods”),[a supernatural race in Irish mythology. They are thought to represent the main deities of pre-Christian Gaelic Ireland.[1]

Much of Irish mythology was recorded by Christian monks, who often depicted the Tuath Dé as kings, queens and heroes of the distant past who had supernatural powers or who were later credited with them. Other times they were explained as fallen angels who were neither good nor evil."
