About Érimón mac Míl Espáine, 2nd High King of Ireland

Érimón, son of Míl Espáine, according to medieval Irish legends and historical traditions, was one of the chieftains who took part in the Milesian invasion of Ireland, which conquered the island from the Tuatha Dé Danann, and one of the first Milesian High Kings. He, his brothers and followers arrived in Inis Elga (Ireland) aboard 35 ships in the year of the world 3500 or 1699BC (per the "Four Masters"). Upon conquering Ireland from the Tuatha de Danann, Eermon was proclaimed King of Northern Ireland. After the ensuing battle with his brother (King of the south) over possession of the Hills of Tara, Eermon became the 1st (Milesian) King of Ireland...."the Land of Destiny" as foretold by Moses. Hermon had 4 sons:

   Muimhne the 3rd King of Ireland
   Luighine 4th King of Ireland
   Laighean 5th King of Ireland, and
   Irial Fiadh 10th King of Ireland

Misc. Notes

He and his eldest brother Heber were, jointly, the first.Milesian Monarchs of Ireland; they began to reign, A.M. 3,500, or, Before Christ, 1699. After Heber was slain, B.C. 1698, Heremon reigned singly for fourteen years; during which time a certain colony called by the Irish Cruithneaigh, in English "Cruthneans" or Picts, arrived in Ireland and requested Heremon to assign them a part of the country to settle in, which he refused; but, giving them as wives the widows of the Tuatha de-Danans, slain in battle, he sent them with a strong party of his own forces to conquer the country then called "Alba," but now Scotland; conditionally, that they and their posterity should be tributary, to the Monarchs of Ireland. Heremon died, B.C. 1683, and was succeeded by three of his four sons, named Muimne,"The House of Hereman," Luigne, and Laighean, who reigned jointly for three years, and were slain by their Heberian successors.
