    Pat seems to be confusing British arrivals with English arrivals. He is also confusing the Milesian ” Iberian ” Ib-ERIA-n i.e Irish settlers with the aboriginal population of the British-Isles who were neither English or Irish.

    Hello, my name is Klaus and I am a student of architecture in New Zealand. I am interested in writing an essay on a specific type or form of Irish architecture. these Crannógs and ringfort sound interesting. I would like to know if you (pat flannery) have any published texts or even a website from which i could learn more and even reference in an essay?
