Mr Taylor thank you very much for asking this great question. Ms. Finely thank you very much for your detailed and great response.

However I think I did not understand the response. I still dont understand; was there a king of Ireland around 600 BC?

4/29/2011 at 10:11 AM

There was a legendary High King of Ireland, as recorded in medieval compilations. I don't want to be judgmental, but one might suspect the whole line - while very interesting from a historical perspective - was constructed to give later generations an illustrious descent. Obviously, our medieval chroniclers were not entirely certain of their dating ;)
