About Sruth / Srú

Sruth

Father: Asruth of Crete

Misc. Notes

Sruth, soon after his father's death, was set upon by the Egyptians, on account of their former animosities towards their predecessors for having taken part with the Israelites against them; whicih animosities until then lay raked up in the embers, and now broke out in a flame to that degree, that after many battles and conflicts wherein most of his colony lost their live, Sruth was forced with the few remaining to depart the country; and, after many traverses at sea, arrived at the Isladn of Creta (now called Candia), where he paid his last tribute to nature.

Children: Heber _______________________________________________________ A General History Of Ireland: From The Earliest Accounts To The ..., Volume 1 By Sylvester O'Halloran

Curat is Irish for a knight; and the Curaithe na Croabh ruadh, or knights of the Red-branch, were an hereditary order of chivalry, which flourished through all periods of our history. The time which this colony spent in Greece, it is agreed, was just fifty years ; so that according to our mode of calculation Sru died in Crete, A. M. 2071, and his son Heber-Scot sailed for Phœnicia, the feat of his ancestors, A. M. 2096. He was received with great affection by his kindred, and the Psalter Cashill affirms, that he possessed of the supreme command in Phœnicia, but was killed in battle by Naoine, of the posterity of Neanuil, eldest son to Phænius. Boamhain succeeded his father Heber-Scot, A. M. 2106. Great contest arose between him and Naoine. War and peace succeeded each other for a number of years; at length Boamhain fell by the sword, A. 2141. Oghamhain took command of the shattered forces arid shattered fortune of his father, and by courage and perseverance arrived at the same degree of power. He also fell in battle, A. M. 2 176, and so gave way for his son Tait. To him succeeded Aghnoin, A. M. 2211. This prince in battle engaged hand to hand with Riffleoir, of the progeny of Neanuil, and slew him. This so inflamed the followers of his house, that they vowed a total extirpation to the progeny of Niul. Forseeing the impossibility of protecting themselves from the approaching storm, in a solemn council they agree to quit for ever this country of their ancestors, and having armed and fitted up their ships they proceeded to sea, A. 224c, under the command us Aghnoin, and his brother Heber presided as high-priest. Aghnoin had three sons, Ealloid, Laimh-fionn, and Laimh-glas ; and Hebcr had Caicer, and Cing. For a considerable time was this fleet tossed up and down ; sometimes landing on some island, and, after refreshing themselves and resitting their ships, again proceeding to sea. During this period Aghnoin died, A. M. 2242, and was succeeded by his eldest son Lamh-fionn. Some time after they made for the island Carenia, being obliged so to do by a violent storm. Here they reposed themselves for fifteen months, and in this interval died Heber the high-priest, and Lamh-glas one of his nephews; and we are told were buried with great funeral pomp. His son Caicer was appointed to fill his place, and having prepared every necessary for a long voyage, and sacrificed to the gods, particularly to Neptuner Caicer was consulted as to what the fates had decreed with respect to them, and whither they should direct their course? He answered they were to steer to the westward. That the land reserved for their posterity, was the most weflern island in the world; but which neither they nor their issue for some generations were to possess. They, overawed by this prophecy directed their course to a country called in all our ancient MSS. Gaothlaigh Meadhonacha.
