Irian Septs / Families
Irian Septs - Family branches - who originally had their territory in their kingdom of Ulaid on the north - east of Ulster who were descended from *37.Ir, one of the Gaelic Milesian 5 brothers who were drowned before landing a second time in Ireland in 1699 BC who was also a brother to 37.Heremon & 37.Heber the sons of *36.Mil the Celtic Gaelic Hero of Spain & 3rd King of Castile & Portugal.
Of these the Dal nAraide aristocratic Septs were based on the Scythian Cruthin Celtic Picts in the Ulster Province who were always in conflict with the Dal Fiatach Septs there in Ulaid who they took turns at sharing the Kingship of Ulaid with. The Heremonian Dal Riada Sept who were descended from 37.Heremon also had territory there in the far - north of Co. Antrim in far north - east Ulster under 71.Erc, 71.Lorn & 71.Angus who were to expand their territory across the Irish Sea to Argyle - The Land of the Gael in Albany in the Highlands of Scotland. The remaining members of the Dal Riada who were left behind in Co. Antrim allied with the Dal nAraide Septs, which made them stronger.
