       The Gaelic Milesians are descended in Ireland from 36.Gallamh (warrior) aka 36.Mil / Milesius / warrior (Latin) in Ireland who was a grandson of 34.Breoghan / Brigus who was of Scythian Gaelic Celtic descent (who is also the ancestor of the Brigantes) and the 1st Gaelic King of Galicia, Andalusia, Murcia and Brigia (Castile and Portugal) who constructed Breoghan’s Tower / Brigantia in Galicia and Braganza in Portugal. 36.Mil's father, 35.Bile was the 2nd Gaelic King of Galicia, Andalusia, Murcia and Brigia (Castile and Portugal). 36.Mil / 36.Gallamh was widely respected throughout Gaul as the Celtic Hero of Spain as he had previously gone to Egypt to serve the Pharaoh / King there and defeated the Ethiopians in battle on his behalf. Nectanbus the Egyptian Pharaoh then gave him his daughter, Scota / Scotia in marriage who was to give her name to Scotland through her Gaelic Milesian descendants the Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh Ui Conaire Scottii / Irishmen from the kingdom of Dal Riada (People of 70.Riada) through one of her surviving sons in Ireland, *37.Eremon the joint 1st Gaelic Milesian King of Erinn and his descendant, *69.Conaire 11 the 111th King of Tara / Ireland and his son, 70.Eochy aka 70.Cairbre Riada / riata. 36.Mil was to succeeded his father as the Gaelic King in Spain, and also become the direct male line ancestor of the aristocratic Celtic Gaelic Milesian warriors in Ireland predominantly through 3 of his 8 sons who were to be involved in the second Gaelic expedition to Eire / Ireland. (36.Gallamh's name in Ireland was to be later changed by the Celtic Irish monks to Milesius from the Latin term (mileadh - warrior) and from there shortened to 36.Mil.)

     36.Mil / 36 Gollamh the Scythian Celtic Gaelic Hero of Spain who was the 3rd King of Castile and Portugal is the ancestor of the Gaelic Milesian Heberians, Heremonians and Irian Septs / Family Branches in Ireland, who are descended from 3 of his sons *37.Eber Fionn - of Fair Complexion the direct male line ancestor of the hEberian Septs, *37.Eremon his seventh son who is the direct male line ancestor of the Heremonian Septs and 37.Ir the direct male line ancestor of the Irian Septs. (They were also 3 of the sons of Scota, the daughter of Nectanbus the Pharaoh of Egypt). The Gaelic Ithian Septs who had their territory in Southern Munster are descended from 36.Mil's uncle, 35.Ithe and his son, 36.Lewy / Lughaidh. All of their Gaelic descendants in authority in Ireland were to be from their noble aristocratic warrior class who are known as the Saorchlana who became the Gaelic Kings of Ireland and of the Scottish Highlands.

                                                      

                                                                                                                                 *37.Eber Fionn - of Fair Complexion.  

 

      36.Mil's and Scotia's oldest surviving son,*37.Eber Fionn - of Fair Complexion was to be the Gaelic Milesian joint 1st King of Tara / Eire / Erinn in Eber's Half / Southern Ireland after initially sharing the Gaelic Milesian Kingship of Ireland with his younger brother, *37.Eremon who had his initial territory in Eremon's Half / Midlands / Midhe / Northern Leinster. *37.Eber Fionn was to become the direct male line ancestor of the aristocratic hEberian aristocratic warrior Septs / Family branches in the territory in the southern half of Ireland, made up of what is now Southern Leinster and the Munster Province. *37.Eber Fionn was over time to be the ancestor of 83.Mogha Nuadhat who in the 2nd Century AD was to become the Heberian King in Mogha's Half / Southern Ireland who was married to Momera / Beara who was a daughter of the Gaelic King of Spain. This was to be before the total dominance of *83.Conn of the Hundred Battles the Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh Ui Felim 110th King of Tara / Ireland who was to be descended from *37.Eremon, *37.Eber Fionn's younger brother. After 83.Mogha's demise *83.Conn of the Hundred Battles was to claim sovereignty also over Southern Leinster, which then only left the territory in the Munster Province for the Heberians and also for their Gaelic kinsmen the Ithian Septs to share. *83.Conn of the Hundred Battles was then to join Southern Leinster to Northern Leinster to form the whole of what is now the Leinster Province,  but the sovereignty of the territory there in Southern Leinster would always still be disputed by the Heberians. *83.Conn of the Hundred Battles was to become the direct male line ancestor of the Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh Ui Felim Dal Cuinn (The People of *83.Conn.) From then on the Heberian total control would only be mainly further south in the Munster Province, which was then composed of the territories of Co. Cork, Co. Kerry, Co. Limerick, Co. Tipperary and Co. Waterford. (Later on in the early 4th Century AD the Heberian Dal gCais Sept descended from 85.Cormac Cass through his descendant 91.Cas would also take in Co. Clare, which was then geographically in the far west also in Southern Connacht on the western side of the River Shannon. Despite this the Heberian Septs emanating from *37.Eber Fionn would continue to try and regain control over their previous lost territory in Southern Leinster, because it was originally in Mogha's Half, whenever the opportunity was to present itself.

 

     From then on basically confined to the Munster Province the Heberians were to culminate into 3 main Heberian Tuatha / Family regions in the Munster Province and their evolving 4 Septs / Family Branches were to emanate from 4 brothers who were to be the sons of 83.Mogha Nuadhat's son, 84.Ailill Oluimm who was to become the Heberian 1st King of Munster, who was married to 84.Sadbh one of the daughters of 83.Conn of the Hundred Battles. Their oldest son, 85.Eoghan / Owen Mor - the Greater was to become the direct male line ancestor of the Eoghanachta Septs (The People of 85.Eoghan)and their second son, 85.Cormac Cass - of the Curly Hair was to become the 2nd King of Munster and the 1st King of Thomond / Northern Munster and the direct male line ancestor of the Dal gCais Septs (The People of 91.Cas) who was to be his descendant who later also became a King of Thomond / Tuaisceart Mhumhain / Northern Munster that by then would also include Co. Clare in the far - west, which was geographically on the western side of the River Shannon situated in the south of the Connacht Province. Another of their sons, 85.Cian / Keen was to become the direct male line ancestor of the Cianachta Septs (The People of 85.Cian) whose aristocratic warrior Septs were to eventually also spread out into the other 3 Provinces due to their early commitment to their maternal line from 84.Sadbh and the Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh U Felim Dal Cuinn Sept of her father, *83.Conn of the Hundred Battles. Another son, 85.Tierney / Tigernach was to be the direct mal line ancestor of the Cenel Cerdraige Sept, which were not to become as prominent.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Eoghanachta / Dal gCais / Cianachta

The Eoghanachta: are descended directly from 85.Eoghan Mor - the Greater, the oldest son of 84.Ailill Oluimm the 1st King of Munster, a son of 83.Mogha Nuadhat the King of Mogha's Half / Southern Ireland (Southern Leinster and the Munster Province). Their individual kingdoms originally also took in territory in Northern Munster in the south of Co. Tipperary and Co. Limerick, but they were to later move further south into Southern Munster (Co. Cork and Co. Kerry). Their main Families came to be represented by the Mac Carthys, the O Callaghans, the O Donoghues, the O Keefes, the O Mahonys and the O Sullivans. 

The Dal gCais: are descended from 85.Cormac Cass - of the Curly Hair the 2nd King of Munster and 1st King of Northern Munster the second oldest son of 84.Ailill Oluimm the 1st King of Munster. Their territory was eventually based on Co. Clare, the north of Co. Limerick, Co. Tipperary and Co. Waterford in Tuath Mhumhain / Thomond / Northern Munster. Their main Dal gCais/ Dalcassian Families later on were to be the O Briens and the Mac Namaras. 

The Cianachta: are descended from 85.Cian / Keen another of the sons of 84.Ailill Oluimm the 1st King of Munster, and their Septs were to be spread throughout Ireland in the Munster Province, the Leinster Province, the Connacht Province and in the north - east of the Ulster Province due to the original commitment of his son, 86.Teague / Tadhg mac Cian to their maternal kinsmen the Dal Cuinn Septs under the grandson of *83.Conn of the Hundred Battles the 110th King of Tara / Ireland, namely *85.Cormac mac Airt of the Long Beard - the Magnificent who was to become the 115th King of Tara / Ireland. Their main Cianachta Families came to be the O Carrolls in the north - east of the Ulster Province, the O Connors in Ely in the border region of Co. Offaly in the mid - west of Southern Leinster and Co. Tipperary in the north - east of the Munster Province, the O Garas and the O Haras who had their territory mainly in Co. Sligo in the north - west of the Connacht Province and later also in the north - east of the Ulster Province, and the O Meaghers / O Mahers of Co. Tipperary in the north - east of the Munster Province.

                                                                                                                                          Irian Septs descended from - 37.Ir 

       Another of 36.Mil's 8 sons who left aristocratic warrior Gaelic Milesian Kings in Ireland was 37.Ir  who was another son of Scota / Scotia the daughter of Nectanbus the Pharaoh of Egypt, and he was to be among the 5 Gaelic Milesian brothers who were to be drowned during the Gaelic expedition's second landing in Ireland. He was to be the direct male line ancestor of the Irian Septs / Family branches who initially had their territory in the north - east of the Ulster Province after his surviving son, 38.Eber Donn received the territory there from *37.Eremon when he became the sole Celtic Gaelic Milesian King of Tara / Erinn. Eventually in the middle of the 16th Century BC,  37.Ir's descendant, Cearmna became the 15th King of Tara / Erinn, the first of 25 future intermittent Irian Kings of Ireland who were to also become the Kings of Ulster, and then the Kingship of Ulidia for themselves also, over a very long period of time. They were to lose the Kingship of Ulster in the early 3rd Century AD when they were to come under siege from the Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh Ui Felim Dal Cuinn 3 Colla Septs who were to be  descended also from *83.Conn of the Hundred Battles the 110th King of Tara / Ireland and therefore 37.Eremon, who then set up a Dal Cuinn kingdom of their own in the territory there in Southern Ulster to be later known as Orghialla / Oriel. The Irians then became the Kings of Ulaid / Ulidia in the north - east of Ulster as the Irian Dal nAraidi Sept who were to be descended by then from 90.Crond Ba Drui, and the Dal Fiatach Sept who were to be descended from Fiatach Fionn who had been the Heremonian 103rd King of Tara / Ireland in 36 AD and his descendant, 90.Fogg Mac Dallain. They were to eventually only have control in the south of Co. Antrim and Co. Down there, as the Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh Ui Conaire Dal Riada Sept who were descended from *69.Conaire 11 the 111th King of Tara / Ireland and 84.Saraid, another of the daughters of *83.Conn of the Hundred Battles, and therefore also of *37.Eremon, gained territory from them in the far - north - east of Co. Antrim before extending their territory there into Alba / Scottish Highlands. Other areas west of these two Counties were to be also eventually taken over by the Heremonian Ui Cobhthaigh Ui Felim Dal Cuinn northern Ui Niaill Septs directly descended by that time from 91.Eogan and 91.Conall Gulban, 2 of the 8 sons of 90.Niall of the Nine Hostages the previous 126th King of Tara / Ireland who was also descended from 83.Conn of the Hundred Battles, and therefore of *37.Eremon. The main Irian Families came to be represented by the Mac Guinness / Mheic Aenghusa,  O Dunleavy / Ui Duin Sliebe and Mac Gowan / Mheic an Ghabhann in the Ulster Province, the O More / O Moores / Ui Morda in Co. Offaly in the mid - west of Southern Leinster, Mac Donnells in Co.

       35.Ithe, who was 36.Mil’s uncle,, was the first of the Gaels to discover Inish Ealga / Erie along with his son, 36.Lewy / Lughaidh and both were to become the direct male line ancestors of the Ithian and Darinian Tuaths and Septs of their own Celtic Gaelic Families after hearing of this "Far Western Isle were no serpents existed.” Although he was to be mortally wounded in Ireland on the first expedition, by the 3 Tuatha de Danann Kings who basically feared his expressions of exuberance over Ireland, he was to eventually become the direct male line ancestor of the aristocratic warrior Gaelic Ithian Families in the south of Ireland in Co. Cork in Southern Munster.

       In 1543 BC they would produce Eochy / Eochaidh Edghothach who would become the Ithian 14th King of Tara / Erinn, the first from their Sept to do so, until 952 BC when Eochy / Eochaidh Apach would also become the 41st Ithian King of Tara / Erinn They later also evolved into the Darinian Families in Southern Ireland and would absorb the many Erainn / Fir Bolg Septs located their, and in 195 AD evolve through one of their Ithian aristocratic warrior descendants, *58.Lewy / Lughaidh mac Con who was to become the 113th King of Tara / Ireland, into the Ithian Corca Loigde Sept (The People of 58.Lughaidh.) In 284 AD Fothadh Airgtheach would become the Ithian 118th King of Tara / Ireland along with his brother, Fothadh Cairpreach who would be the Ithian 119.King of Tara / Ireland.
