"But these five large volumes do not by
any means contain the whole of Irish law (Brehon Law)

As some will already know, the Magna Carta ("The
Great Charter of Freedoms
" produced in England in 1215 AD
surrounded by vague and tantalising myths which strongly suggest that the
"essentials" of this world-famous legal document came from a much, much earlier
period of human history - which is usually referred to as "The Golden
", and which may embrace the days of "The Golden Fleece" possibly - in
the "time of Homer
" (eighth century BC or possibly
Around 1700 AD
, Samuel Johnson (for
instance) talked of the Magna Carta being "born with a grey
I wonder if by any chance the source of these myths might
be the Brehon Law "Book of Rights"
associated with the
"Great Feast of Tara"
"There are many more valuable Brehon
documents still untranscribed in the library of Trinity College
in the British Museum
, and in the Bodleian Library
University, England) and possibly some fragments in the Royal Irish
and other repositories." (From http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/02753a.htm
long is this priceless Brehon Law "Book of Rights" going to remain
"untranscribed" I wonder - having due regard for the fact that Brehon Law is
widely believed to be the oldest and most compassionate
laws in Europe: and very likely just as old, or possibly older, as anything
connected with Homer?
The Brehon Law "Book of Rights"
is a very large and comprehensive set of "Golden Laws"
maybe? - which, given the opportunity, might out-shine the
Magna Carta in a really big way perhaps?

recent months, it appears that a number of extremely important ancient heritage
sites closely associated with the Hill of Tara have already been completely
destroyed as a direct result of this PPP project (or the "Plunder Plunder
" project as some people have now come to think of
A number of other important heritage sites in the area
have also been badly damaged apparently.
Unless something of
significance is done soon to prevent it, the same fate awaits many more of the
ancient heritage sites which form an integral part of the overall set of sites
connected with the Hill of Tara

Information on King Ollamh Fodhla can be found at http://www.kingollamhfodhla.com/
According to the Annals of Ireland by
the Four Masters (written in Donegal between 1632-36
AD), King Ollamh Fodhla reigned over Ireland for a forty year
period between 1317 and 1277 BC. A scanned copy of the actual text
containing this statement can be found at the following address: http://homepage.eircom.net/~williamfinnerty/name/annals.htm
As can be seen at the address just above, the text of
the Annals of Ireland by the Four Masters
also states very clearly that:
(King Ollamh Fodhla) was the first king by whom the Feis-Teamhrach
(The Great Feast of Tara) was established.
main purpose of the regularly held "Great Feast of Tara
" appears to have
been the nationwide installation, policing, and maintenance of Brehon
It seems Brehon Law was used throughout the whole
Island of Ireland
for a period of around 2,500
years, and right up
to the time of the Anglo-Norman Invasion
in 1169 AD
that, it began to gradually get stamped out - and replaced by English
By around the mid 1600s AD
, Brehon Law - which was
very, very different in several respects to English Law - had completely
vanished from everyday life in
