Ireland’s Ancient Tribes Tuatha Dé Danann: Shocking Connection With Anunnaki & Ancient Egyptians


The earliest record of an ancient civilization on Earth can be found in the Sumerian scriptures, which is mainly about Mesopotamia (modern-day Iraq, Kuwait, Turkey, and Syria). In Ireland in the North, there is an ancient sacred site, known as “The Hill of Tara.” It is associated with the legend of supernatural beings (“Tuatha De Danann”), who ruled the nation from 1897 B.C. to 1700 B.C.

According to Irish legends and myths, The Hill of Tara is an inauguration place and seat of the High Kings of Ireland, where Tuatha De Danann reigned. It is said that there were the god-like people who arrived in Ireland in mysterious ships and had magical powers. Tuatha De Danann is translated as “people of the goddess Danu,” a primordial mother goddess.

Note: The term “Danu” is associated with ancient Celtic religion. For example, in the ancient Hindu text Rigveda, it is mentioned that Danu (Asura) is the mother of the Danavas, and this name may describe “primeval waters.”

Legends say that there were six waves of masters that conquered Ireland. The conquerors of the fifth wave were known as Tuatha Dé (‘People of God’), but later they were renamed as Tuatha Dé Dannan (‘People of the goddess Danu’) by the Irish monks in order to avoid mistakenly considering them as Israelites who are referred to as “the people of God” in Hebrew Bible.

It is said that the Tribe of the Goddess Danu were considered as a penultimate group of conquerors of Ireland. In myths of the Irish Celts, the North was believed to be a source of great force. A goddess tribe Danu – Tuatha de Danann (in the old Irish tuath means “people, tribe, nation”) came from the northern islands, full of druidic wisdom and magic knowledge.

On their arrival to Ireland from the Northern Isles, Tuatha Dé Dannan blocked out daylight for three days and nights with their ships. Then they burned their ships so that there could be no thought of retreat. This sent up a great cloud of dark smoke.

In Lebor Gabála Érenn ( “The Book of the Taking of Ireland” or “The Book of Invasions”), there is a collection of poems and prose about the mythical origins and history of the Irish from the creation of the world down to the Middle Ages.

“It is God who suffered them, though He restrained them.
They landed with horror, with lofty deed,
In their cloud of mighty combat of spectres,
Upon a mountain of Conmaicne of Connacht.
Without distinction to discerning Ireland,
Without ships, a ruthless course
The truth was not known beneath the sky of stars,
Whether they were of heaven or of earth.”

Unfortunately, after losing in a series of wars with Milesians (final settlers of Ireland), Tuatha de Danann had to recede into the hollow hills and subsequently went underground. They are eventually known as the Elven folk of Celtic lore. It is interesting to note that the prefix “El” of Elven is a derivative of the ancient Sumerian Elil and the Hebrew Elohim, both being proper pronouns for the names of gods.

In his book “Realm of the Ring Lords,” British author Sir Laurence Gardner described Tuatha Dé Dannan: “The ancient people of the Tuatha De Danann…were the supernatural tribe of the pre-Achaean agricultural goddess Danae of Argos, or perhaps of the Aegean mother-goddess, Danu. But their true name rendered in its older form was Tuadhe d’Anu. As such, they were the people (or tribe) of Anu, the great sky gods of the Anunnaki.”

According to Mysterious Universe, there are also startling links to many other ancient mythologies, including the Nephilims of the Bible and the ancient Sumerian Anunnaki.

“The Canaanite territory of northern Israel is said to have once been occupied by the Israelite tribe of Dan, who, during the days of the Bible’s Great Exodus, around 1446 BCE, is said to have separated from Moses and the rest of the Israelites, traveling to the north.The people of the Israelite tribe of Dan intermingled with the Canaanite Tuatha De Danann, also known as the Dragon Lords of Anu, said to be the offspring of the ancient Sumerian Anunnaki. This is also one of the interpretations of the Sons of God intermingling with the “daughters of men,” referenced in Genesis chapter six the story of the Nephilims.”

Tuatha de Danann were apparently tall, blond or red-haired strangers, “expert in the arts of pagan cunning”, who supposedly interbred with the locals, while teaching them many kinds of useful skills. Ancient astronaut theorists believe this is an example of advanced extraterrestrial technology.

“They had four great treasures (or talismans) that demonstrated their skills. The first was the ‘Stone of Fal’ which would scream when a true King of Ireland stood on it. It was later placed on the Hill of Tara, the seat of the High-Kings of Ireland. The second was the ‘Magic Sword of Nuadha’, which was capable of inflicting only mortal blows when used. The third was the ‘sling-shot of the Sun God Lugh’, famed for its accuracy when used. The final treasure was the ‘Cauldron of Daghda’ from which an endless supply of food issued.”

Ireland and Ancient Egypt Connection

The connection between Irish and Egyptian legends may sound impossible but there is evidence to support this theory. Recently, Dr. Sean O Riordan of Trinity College discovered the skeleton of a 15-year-old boy at The Mound of the Hostages, near Hill of Tara. Carbon dating showed that the remains were roughly 3,800 years old. A necklace found with the skeleton was made of faience beads and matched similar Egyptian manufacture and design.

Also, Scientists from Trinity College Dublin and Queen’s University Belfast published Groundbreaking DNA Findings, according to which, ancient Irish were not only related to the people of southern Europe but that there was a Middle Eastern connection too. If it is so then the discovery of the skull of a Barbary ape (dated to 390 – 20 B.C) in Ireland could connect to a previously unexplored etymological link to the Tuatha De Danann.

One of the most important Egyptian gods was Thoth, later to be named Hermes by the Greeks. Thoth was a moon god who was said to have brought wisdom and writing to the world. He was often represented and symbolized by a baboon or the North African ape. Could this be a reason for ape bones found at Irish sites?
