8-19-04 - DREAM - I dreamed multiple times that I was sending myself an e-mail about Tuatha Del Danaan.  The last time I had a picture of a dawn rising on a meadow and I knew I was making progress.

Wikipedia says:

The Tuatha Dé Danann ("peoples of the goddess Danu") were the fifth group of inhabitants of Ireland, according to the Lebor Gabála Érenn (Book of Invasions) tradition. They are thought to represent the gods of the Goidelic Irish; their Christian transcribers' interpretations generally have reduced their stature to historical kings and heroes.

A poem in the Book of Leinster lists many of the Tuatha Dé, but ends "Although [the author] enumerates them, he does not worship them." Goibniu, Creidhne and Luchta are referred to as Trí Dée Dána ("three gods of craftsmanship"), and the Dagda's name is interpreted in medieval texts as "the good god." Even after they are displaced as the rulers of Ireland, characters such as Lug, the Mórrígan, Aengus and Manannan appear in stories set centuries later, showing all the signs of immortality. They have many parallels across the Celtic world. Nuada is cognate with the British god Nodens; Lugh is a reflex of the pan-Celtic deity Lugus; Tuireann is related to the Gaulish Taranis; Ogma to Ogmios; the Badb to Catubodua.

Legendary history

The Tuatha Dé were descended from Nemed, leader of a previous wave of inhabitants of Ireland. They came from four northern cities, Falias, Gorias, Murias and Finias, where they acquired their occult skills and attributes. They arrived in Ireland, on or about May 1 (the date of the festival of Beltaine), on dark clouds, although later versions rationalise this by saying they burned their ships to prevent retreat, and the "clouds" were the smoke produced.

Led by their king, Nuada, they fought the First Battle of Magh Tuiredh (Moytura), on the west coast, in which they defeated and displaced the clumsy and ill-armed Fir Bolg, who then inhabited Ireland. Nuada lost an arm in the battle. Since he was no longer perfect, he could not continue as king and was replaced by the half-Fomorian Bres, who turned out to be a tyrant. The physician Dian Cecht replaced Nuada's arm with a working silver one and he was reinstated as king. However, Nuada was dissatisfied with the replacement so he turned to Dian Cecht's son Miach, who made him a new hand of flesh and blood. Dian Cecht slew his own son out of jealousy.

Because of Nuada's restoration as leader the half-Fomorian Bres complained to his family.

The Tuatha Dé then fought the Second Battle of Magh Tuiredh against the Fomorians. Nuada was killed by the Fomorian king Balor's poisonous eye, but Balor was killed by Lugh, who took over as king.

The Celtic god Lugh was also called Lamfhada (of the long arm) in Gaelic.
The evil Underworld god Balor was the sun god Lugh's grandfather, whom Lugh, "the shining one" had to kill. Lugh was king of the Tuatha De Danaan.

A third battle was fought against a subsequent wave of invaders, the Milesians, from the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula (present day Galicia and Northern Portugal), descendants of Míl Espáine (who are thought to represent the Goidelic Celts). The Milesians encountered three goddesses of the Tuatha Dé, Ériu, Banba and Fodla, who asked that the island be named after them; Ériu is the origin of the modern name Éire, and Banba and Fodla are still sometimes used as poetic names for Ireland.

Their three husbands, Mac Cuill, Mac Cecht and Mac Gréine, who were kings of the Tuatha Dé at that time, asked for a truce of three days, during which the Milesians would lie at anchor nine waves' distance from the shore. The Milesians complied, but the Tuatha Dé created a magical storm in an attempt to drive them away. The Milesian poet Amergin calmed the sea with his verse, before his people landed and defeated the Tuatha Dé at Tailtiu. When Amergin was called upon to divide the land between the Tuatha Dé Danann and his own people, he clever alotted the portion above ground to the Milesians and the portion underground to the Tuatha Dé. The Tuatha Dé were led underground into the Sidhe mounds by The Dagda. They survive into modern-day Irish conscienceness as gods and goddesses, the Sidhe, and the mysterious fairy-folk of Irish mythology.

The Tuatha Dé Danann fought against the witch Carman and her three sons. They are said to have brought chariots and druidry to Ireland.

The Four Treasures of the Tuatha Dé Danann

The Tuatha Dé Danann brought four magical treasures with them to Ireland:

These four treasure can be linked to the four elements, and four suits, found in Tarot and throughout pagan mythology. The Cauldron (or Cup) represented water. The Spear (or Wand) represented fire. The Stone (or Coin) represented earth. The Sword represented air. These symbols still carry over in modern playing cards, Hearts, Diamonds, Clubs and Spades respectively.

Tuatha Dé Danann family tree

The following table is based on the genealogies given by Seathrún Céitinn and in the Lebor Gabála Érenn, and references in Cath Maige Tuireadh. It is not clear whether the various Elathas and Delbáeths are meant to be different figures of the same name or different traditions regarding the genalogy of the same figure. It is also notable that Fomorians such as Elatha and Balor are closely related to the Tuatha Dé.

Who were the Tuatha De Danaan?

... and other musings....

The Tuatha De Danaan were "the people of Anu" and formed the pantheon of the pre-Celtic Irish. They could be roughly compared to the Greek gods of Olympus. They were remembered by the Old Irish for their goodness and great skills, used for the benefit of the people of Ireland.

The arrival of the Tuatha De Danaan was not only shrouded in mystery, but was so strange to the local people that they had to create a rational explanation as to how they appeared...

They were recorded as having landed in Northern Ireland from Scotland on a day which was later to be termed Beltaine, better known as May Day - 1st of May. It was stated that, after burning their ships, they surrounded themselves with a mist of draoideacht, which means 'magic' or 'sorcery' and marched inland for three days. By this means they hid themselves from the local inhabitants - the Firbolg - until they reached Sliabh-an-lerainn, the Mountain of Iron in Co. Leitrim, where they were first seen.

Effectively speaking, the locals tried to explain away the fact that these strange visitors appeared, literally, out of thin air ... and down off the mountain, quoted as having come 'out of nowhere' and 'out of the heavens'. Eachaid Ua Flainn, a poet who died in A.D.985 says "They had no vessels.... No one really knows whether it was over the heavens, or out of the heavens, or out of the earth that they came. Were they demons of the devil... were they men?"

The Tuatha appeared as tall, fair haired, 'shining-faced' sages with a highly organised small group of highly skilled leaders, artisans and craftmen. They were remembered for teaching the Irish people agricultural skills and animal husbandry.

It's interesting to note that according to the traditions of the Tuatha de Danaan, they had spent seven years in the north of Scotland before reaching Ireland, at places named Dobhar and Iardahar. Before Scotland, they had spent some years in Lochlonn, which has been equated with Scandinavia. In modern Gaelic, Lochlainn refers to the state of Denmark, and it seems a rather interesting coincidence that the Danes call their country Danmark; the land of the Dan people.

Apparently the Tuatha De Danaan were welcomed to Scandinavia where they settled in four cities where they taught to the young. Sages, resident in the cities were there to 'teach the sciences and the varied arts'. Prior to their teachings there, they apparently came from a place called Achaia.

It may be a tenuous link, but a region called Achaiyah, north of Mount Hermon, Syria is sited as being a possible site for Kharsag, the homeland of The Annage the so called 'Shining Ones' - great teacher gods of Sumerian tradition. These were the gods of the Sumerians who began the cradle of Western civilisation in the Mesopotanian Valley.

The Sumerians ruled the region from at least 4000 B.C. and there is still a certain degree of mystery as to the sudden rise of culture of the indigenous population - which they, themselves, attributed to the influence of their teacher gods.

It's possible that a small band of these elusive 'teachers' who could have been, themselves the last vestiges of an elder culture in decline, deciding to pass on their skills to the indigenous peoples, working their way through from the Mesopotanian basin through southern Europe, possibly teaching the Greeks in the same manner as the Tuatha De Danaan taught the old Irish... leaving memories of gods... who came from the Mount Olympus.... could they have then moved up northwards, spreading their knowledge via France, Germany, upto Scandinavia - again with their own pantheon of gods - and thence across to Britain and then Ireland?

Tenuous I know, but there is an intriguing similarity to the pantheon of teacher gods, both described as 'shining', fair haired and tall in stature, carrying practical knowledge of organised agriculture and animal husbandry, to the indigenous peoples - who before their appearance, were probably scratching together a basic existence - possibly in a hunter-gatherer society.

In a private discussion between a group of friends in 2006, I received this information:

In the 1920 book Life Understood, which I re-consulted this morning, not having read it for several years it states:
"The early monkish analysts state that Ireland was first inhabited by Cessair, the grand-daughter of Noah [St Germain], who according to Professor Rhys, represented a tribal goddess of the pre-Celtic people.  She and her followers were possibly Atlanteans, who, on the submergence of that continent managed to escape to Ireland.
The Prince Heremon whom Tea Tephi married was known as Eochaid in Ireland and this name continued down through the lineages of the Irish kings.  Heber is also another version, relating to their Hebrew ancestry.
Heremon was the son of Princess Scota (daughter of pharaoh Nectanebus of Egypt).  Scota married Gathelus of Spain otherwise known as Milesian (from which we obtain the word 'mile'). At some stage, Scota and Gathelus visited Ireland - it was known as the invasion of the Milesians - and Scotland was named after her.  Scota was not the daughter of King Zedekiah..
 According to 1920 book, Life Understood, Tephi was a family name; Taphath was the daughter of Solomon (I Kings 4 verse 11).  The name 'Tea Tephi' signified 'a tender twig'.  The root 'taph' signifies and infant, and iis the Hebrew word used for 'little one' in numerous places.  'Tea' also means 'little'."
However, I believe it is important to bear in mind that specific names given in the Bible had cryptic meanings and the fact that she was known as the Tender Twig in the Bible, and as Tea Tephi in the Annals of the Irish Masters, signifies TT - connected with the Twin pillars of Moses - the Ark of the Covenant and Freemasonry. She was the young 'twig' of the vine of the House of David.  [note: Moses was Ahkenaten; See: http://www.greatdreams.com/moses.htm  ]
In the Bible the sister is not named, only mentioned as a princess; also in the Annals of the Irish Masters, she is not named.  However, Scota, as mentioned earlier above, was the mother-in-law of Princess Tea Tephi Mor.
Scota's son, Heremon/Eochaid/Heber, was of the tribe of Dan - the Tuatha de Danaan.  There are many gods and goddesses of this tribe, bound up in Irish mythology, including the children of Don/Dan who were regarded as deities in the sky.  Another of the gods of Dan, was Odin who is also Thor in Scandanavian mythology. 'Dan' in Danmark (Denmark) and Scandan... prescribe to where the tribe of Dan left their mark as they travelled towards the British Isles.

The Ark of the Covenant measured 1 1/2 cubits (one and a half), which today would be 2.5 feet.

But the Egyptian Royal cubit measurement was different, and below it mentions dividing it by 60.

I am probably on a wild goose chase here - but the point I am making is if the Ark of the Covenant - twin pillars of Moses concealed within the Ark of the Covenant were so small, for they had to be in order to fit into the Ark of the Covenant, then why the measurement of her burial place being 60 feet? Was it purely a hint of the Freemasonic connection, or one of latitude.

Downpatrick in Ireland, is 54 degrees North.

St Germain's (Merlin/Columba's) favourite Psalm about Tea Tephi's royal wedding, is Psalm 45. He could have given it any other number, i.e. Psalm 33, but he didn't.

To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim, for the sons of Korah, Maschil, A Song of loves.

My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

2 Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever.

3 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.

4 And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.

5 Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king’s enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.

Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

8 All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.

9 Kings’ daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.

10 Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father’s house;

11 So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is thy Lord; and worship thou him.

12 And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall intreat thy favour.

13 The king’s daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.

14 She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto thee.

15 With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king’s palace.

16 Instead of thy fathers shall be thy children, whom thou mayest make princes in all the earth.

17 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.

Given that the Grail family were the Essenes, am using their Gemetria.
(website is http://essenes.net/gemcal.htm)
I am looking to see if any particular numbers stand out as common denominators.
In Greek alphabet,  T = 300 -discount 0's = 33 i.e. T.T. for Tea Tephi, placed side by side, letters T.T. = 33
T+ T in Greek alphabet = 600 (discount 0) 6 = 2 lots of 3 i.e.33 - Thirty-Three.
Thirty Three comprises of twin capital letters of the letter 'T' which in turn correspond to the Twin Pillars of Moses concealed within the Ark of the Covenant.
The princess was buried beneath a mound which measured exactly 60 feet ( drop the 0) and follow same rules we have two lots of 3 - 33.
Germain = 309 which added = 12 (0's don't count)
Noah = 129 which added 1 + 2 + 9 = 12
Ararat = 803 which = 11 (Noah's ark and Mt Ararat)
Eochaid = 101 = 11 (discounting 0) (Eochaid/Heremon married Tea Tephi)
Ephraim (Great Britain) 344 = 11
Columcille (ancient name for St Columba) 344 = 11
Merlin (St Columba) = 335 which = 11
 T +T (for Tea Te phi)  + phi (5) = 11
Taliesin (St Columba/Merlin) = 806 (discount 0) = 14, 1 + 4 = 5 (Phi?)
In Gemetria, TT = 800 (discount 0's) = 8
Thirty Three = 1646 adds up to 17 and 1+7 = 8
Saint Germain = 1070 (discount 0's) = 8
Mound  = 170 (discount 0) = 8
Tender Twig (Ezekiel's riddle about Princess Tea Tephi) = 1877; which adds up to 32, and 3 + 2 = 5 (phi?)
Scota - (ancient name for Ireland) = 771, = 18 & 1 + 8 =9
Tea Tephi = 909 (discount 0) = 99, 9 + 9 = 18, 8 + 1 = 9
Scarlet Thread = 18, 1 + 8 = 9
(Ezekiel's story of the princess is called the Scarlet Thread)
Psalm 54 (of her wedding - favourite psalm and probably written by St G.) 5 + 4 = 9
Heremon (otherwise called Eochaid - husband of Princess TTM) = 378; = 18, 1 + 8 = 9
Downpatrick = 1638, = 18, 1 + 8 =9
Jeremiah (St G) who took A/C & princess TTM to Ireland = 279 = 18, 1 + 8 = 9
Dun da Lethglas (old name for Downpatrick) = 842 = 14 & 1 + 4 = 5
Mor (for Tea's other name) = 310 (discount 0) 3 + 1 = 4
Mor also means a mound and she was buried beneath a mound, could be long stretch of imagination, but if we put 5 & 4 together, for the place and the mound, we have 54 degrees which is exactly where Downpatrick is located.
Also bearing in mind St Columba's favourite psalm 45 - about her wedding.  He must have given it the number 45 for a very good reason.  Mention of the Ark of the Covenant always occurs in verses 33, in the Bible. 33 = Thirty Three = TT = Twins Pillars of Moses concealed within the Ark of the Covenant.
I am still thinking about 54 degrees north (Downpatrick) where the Mound of Down is, and the fact that St Columba's favourite Psalm was 45 - and it is about her marriage to Prince Heremon of the Tribe of Dan.  I do not believe that that particular psalm is a random number chosen - I believe it is specific. 
Clues are as follows:
Certain historical figures, possibly the same beings re-incarnating across history know where the Ark of the Covenant) is hidden because they hid it. So we need to bear in mind that they left us clues to decipher.  They are obviously not going to materialize and show us where it is. The importance of the discovery of the Ark of the Covenant hinges on the fact that after it is found, we will gain world peace.
The A/C is part of the Freemasonic rituals.
There are 33 initiatory degrees in Freemasonry (nothing to do with degrees N.S.E. W. etc.)
The Head of Freemasonry is St Germain.
As Sir Francis Bacon, he and Sir John Dee (Kuthumi) translated the Bible into English.
Sir John Dee at that time, was the Grand Master of the Rosicrucians affiliated with Freemasonry.
According to the Bible, apart from other items, the Ark of the Covenant was built to house the twin pillars of Moses - which are TT.
Mention of Moses, Aaron (St Germain) who was given charge of the Ark of the Covenant, occurs in 33 in the Bible.
Moses & Aaron were of the tribe of Levi, and Aaron was the first High Priest of the tribe of Levi. 
Aaron [St Germain] means a 'box'/'chest'/'sarcophagus "commonly applied to the Ark of the Covenant".
Noah [St Germain] "the Gilgamesh version of the Ark calls it simply ekallu, meaning 'great house' or 'palace'."
In Revelation II, verse 19 (which is 1 + 9 = 10, the perfect number of completion), the Covenant Box is mentioned as being discovered and opened. Revelation II could represent twin pillars.  Kuthumi wrote Revelation when he was John the Beloved.

According to Peter Dawkins of the Francis Bacon Research Trust, UK., the number 33 is the Elizabethan simple cipher for BACON, (B=2, A=1, C=3, 0=14,
N =13), total 33. (Francis Bacon was St Germain who translated the Bible).


The late Alfred Dodd, biographer of Francis Bacon informs us in his book titled Francis Bacon’s Personal Life Story as follows:

Thirty-Three:‘33’ was the numerical signature of Bacon as well as the Highest Masonic Degree, and the symbols of ‘T.T.’ run like a golden thread throughout the ceremonials of Masonry and Rosicrucianism from the first Masonic Step…’T’ and the ‘33’ candles on the Rosicrucian Altar.”

In the Targum Onkelos 33:12 (Aramaric Version of the Bible):
 "The beloved of the Lord shall dwell safely by him: the shield shall be over him all the days, and the Shekinah (Ark of the Covenant) will dwell in his land".
Using the Pythagorean method of ciphers (Pythagoras was Kuthumi who reincarnated as John the Beloved)
33 + 12 = 45 and 4 + 5 = 9.
The 'beloved of the Lord' was John the Beloved (Kuthumi).  In his incarnation as St Patrick, he built his first church at Saul, near Downpatrick. - Downpatrick is named in his honour. The areas are on Leylines.

St Germain in his incarnation as St Columba/Merlin/Taliesin, born in Northern Ireland during the 6th century AD, (which is also 33) prophesied that he would be buried with Patrick (Kuthumi) and St Brigid (Mary of the Gaels - the Lady Portia of St Germain  fame ).  At the time this would have seemed most unlikely. When Patrick died, he was buried on a hill, which overlooks the Mound of Down - Brigid was buried in Leinster in the south of Ireland, and Columba was buried on the island of Iona, Scotland.  However, due to Viking raids, Columba's were taken to Downpatrick and so were Brigid's and they were buried together with St Patrick.
Writing under the name of Taliesin, St Columba wrote:
"My prosperity in guiless Iona" (where he established a major centre of Learning of the Ancient Mysteries and where hand written copies of the Bible were done)
"My soul in Derry (where he was born in Northern Ireland)
"And my body beneath the flagstone beneath which are Patrick and Brigid"
There has been a Cathedral on the hill for many centuries. They are now buried beneath a flagstone there.  According to F.L. Rawson in his book titled Life Understood (1920), the location of the burial place of the A/C was near the Town Cross.Today, that Town Cross stands in front of the Cathedral on the hill overlooking the Mound of Down.  It was originally a location marker for the town.
Going back in time:
In circa 586 BC, St Germain in his incarnation as Jeremiah the Prophet (mentioned in the Bible), prophesied the fall of the Temple of Jerusalem by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. It was in this Temple that the Ark of the Covenant was housed.
In his incarnation as David, anointed by the Prophet Samuel (St Germain) as King of the House of Judah, Kuthumi designed the plans for the Temple and before his demise, made his son Solomon (El Morya) promise to build the Temple in which to house the A/C. (Prior to this, is had been house in a tent).
King Zedekiah of the House of Judah and his two princely sons were captured and killed by Nebuchadnezzar.  Prior to this event, Jeremiah (St Germain) who was the great great grandfather of the princes, and their sister, Princess Tea Tephi Mor, escorted her along with Jacob's Pillow (which in Ireland became known as the Stone of Destiny - the Coronation Stone of Great Britain), to Ireland.  They also took the A/C. They landed on the North East coast of Northern Ireland (Ulster). (North East is Downpatrick).
In the Bible (Ezekiel), there is a riddle about the 'Tender Twig' of the  vine of the House of Judah, the last remaining royal descendant - deciphered in Irish legend, she was the Princess Tea Tephi Mor. 
Tender Twig is also TT.  TT represents not only the Twin pillars of Moses, but also Thirty Three.
Tea Tephi is also TT in initials, and also phoenetically TEA TE with Phi added.
So I don't know if the Phi is related....
'Mor' is not a Middle Eastern name - as in having come from Jerusalem.
'Mor' in Gaelic means a 'Mound'.
Tara, County Meath, in the southern region of Ireland (which is the Republic of Ireland), was the home of the High Kings of Ireland.  Jeremiah (St Germain) reunited the House of Judah with that of the tribe of Dan, when he conducted the marriage ceremony between Prince Heremon (tribe of Dan) and Princess Tea Tephi Mor, upon Jacob's Pillow (Stone of Destiny which became Britain's Coronation Stone eventually housed underneath the throne in Westminster Abbey).
In his incarnation as St Columba, Archdruid High Priest who was the Merlin of the 6th century AD, he wrote many hymns.  His favourite Psalm was number 45.  This is the Royal Wedding of Princess Tea Tephi Mor.
5 + 4 = 9.  And mentioned above :
In the Targum Onkelos 33:12 (Aramaric Version of the Bible) "The beloved of the Lord shall dwell safely by him: the shield shall be over him all the days, and the Shekinah (Ark of the Covenant) will dwell in his land".
Using the Pythagorean method of ciphers (Pythagoras was Kuthumi who reincarnated as John the Beloved)
33 + 12 = 45 and 4 + 5 = 9.
Within the Rosicrucian school of thought there is a lot of instruction about it as it relates to our incarnations. Apparently, if/when we reach the 9th level of the spiral, in our experiences of life, then we have completed our mission for this incarnation. It is also three times three or completeness, the third time around the triangle. This could be the reason we don't recognise (in the Rosicrucian Order) any degrees above the 9th, all a student is permitted to say is that he/she is studying beyond the 9th. Hope this is useful, talk soon.
Also, the mound (Mor) where I believe the princess is buried beneath, is at Downpatrick, County Down, Northern Ireland, which is 54 degrees north and this is why I believe Psalm 45 is a clue as to the degrees of its location.
The princess was buried with the Ark of the Covenant.
According to the Bible codes, the Ark of the Covenant is hidden 'North'. 
According to the Irish bards of the time, she was buried beneath a mound that measured 60 feet exactly.
The Mound of Down (Downpatrick) measures exactly 60 feet in height.
Using the Pythagorean method, 0's are not counted, so 60 = two lots of 3 - 33 (as in Freemasonry) and its rites to do with the Ark of the Covenant.
In his incarnation as Alexander the Great of Macedonia, Alexander (St Germain) wrote of a dream in which he was taken by a green man (Ireland is known as the Emerald Isle and the tribe of Dan to which Prince Heremon who married the Princess belonged, is allotted the 'Emerald' as their tribal stone in the Bible) - to a distant land.
Alexander was taken to the top of a Mount/Mound and there he discovered two large Pillars measuring 60 feet in height.
Thus, we have 3 clues of 60 feet - which are obviously clues to its location.
So, we are looking at 54 degrees North and a mound which measures 60 feet.
As mentioned, this is the exact measurement of the Mound of Down and Downpatrick is 54 degrees North.
Although the Princess and her husband ruled from Tara, they later went North and his brothers ruled from Tara.
They belonged to the Irish tribe of Dal Fiatach, and its palace was at Dun da Lethglas (later to be called Downpatrick).  This palace which lies beneath the mound with ancient ramparts around it, has never been excavated.
It is said to have been as important and as large as Tara.
The question is, has it not been excavated because high up members of the Orange Order of the Freemasons know what is located beneath?
According to Nostradamus, the Ark of the Covenant was hidden in a field which would have to be excavated.
The Mound of Down is in a field.  The field was once Marsh land surrounded by water until 1957-58 when it was reclaimed. (See photos on my website).
According to F.L. Rawson in his book titled Life Understood (1920), upon the arrival of the Ark of the Covenant on the North East coast of Ireland:
"...the preliminary service (for the Ark of the Covenant's arrival) was conducted in the underground chapel in the fortress of a chieftain who protected Christianity...the lighting of the chapel in a beautiful way by the Urim and Thummin..."
And also, that the Ark of the Covenant was concealed in a sarcophagus in the chapel  in a damp place.  You will see by the photo on the website, that the River runs very close to the Mound and the field - so it is very likely that there is a cavern/tomb beneath.
Further in in the book of Ezekiel in the Bible, (and it was Ezekiel who gave us the story of the Princess)
there is mention of the new Temple of Jerusalem.  Jerusalem was also Zion and Britain means the Land of the Covenant and the Land of Zion.  Northern Ireland is part of Great Britain - whereas, Tara in the southern region where some believe the Ark of the Covenant to be hidden, is in the Republic of Ireland.
Ezekiel's Temple "the kings built the thresholds and door-posts of their palace right against the thresholds of my Temple, so that there was only a wall between us."
The kings would refer to the Milesians kings - Prince Heremon who married Princess TT Mor was a Milesian -
In the Bible Codes, Michael Drosnin wrote referencing the Ark of the Covenant's whereabouts;
"It suggested that we might find more than an obelisk/pillar [of Moses] that the obelisk might be part of a palace or temple, either built to house the code key; or perhaps the Encoder."
The Encoder of the Bible refers to himself as the 'Lord of Code'.
St Germain as Sir Francis Bacon, and his tutor Sir John Dee (originator of 007) who translated the Bible into English were both Masters of Ciphers and codes. Therefore, St Germain is the 'Lord of Code' and he was Lord Bacon.
Ezekiel 47:  The man led me back to the entrance of the Temple, Water was coming out from under the entrance and flowing east, the direction that the Temple faced.  It was flowing down from under the south part of the Temple past the south side of the altar.  The man then took me out of the temple area by way of the north gate, and led me to the gate that faces east.  A small stream of water was flowing out at the south of the side gate."
Discussing the Temple, the authors of the Hiram Key quote from "the eighth chapter of the Epistle to the Hebrews which quotes in full the Jeremiah [St Germain] passage which preceded it:
"....an eternal planting, a holy house of Israel [Great Britain] a most holy conclave for Aaron [St Germain] witnesses of Truth and judgment, and chosen by divine favour to atone for the earth, to render the wicked their deserts.  This is the tried wall, cornerstone, whose foundation shall not be shaken nor moved from its place."
(Aaron - St Germain was the first High Priest of Levi in charge of the Ark of the Covenant.  Ezekiel stated "All the priests are descended from Zadok: they are the only members of the tribe of Levi who are permitted to go into the Lord's presence to serve him." This is referring to the new Temple which houses the Ark of the Covenant.  Zadok was Samuel the Prophet who anointed David (Kuthumi) as King of the House of Judah).
"Whilst all of Freemasonry is concerned with the building of a spiritual temple on the design of Ezekiel's view of Solomon's Temple, the 'address in the north-east corner' immediately comes to mind.
"At the erection of all stately or superb edifices, it is customary to lay the first or foundation stone in the north-east corner of the building.  You, being newly admitted into Freemasonry are placed in the north-east corner of the Lodge, figuratively, to represent that stone..."
The Mound of Down lies to the north-east of Cathedral Hill Downpatrick.
"To the south, a stream of water flowed."  The River Quoile near the Mound and field, flows south to Saul.
After the marshes were drained the river became very small  - a stream in parts.
Downpatrick, once called Dun da Lethglas, means the 'Green sided place beside the stream'.
Now we return to Ezekiel:
"Then the man took me back to the bank of the river and when I got there I saw that there were very many trees on each bank.  This water flows through the land to the east into the Jordan Valley [do not take this literally - its a clue to the tribe of Dan in Ireland] and to the Dead Sea.  When it flows into the Dead Sea, it replaces the salt water of that sea with fresh water.  Wherever the stream flows, there will be all kinds of animals and fish [this was a future prophecy].  The stream will make the water of the Dead Sea fresh, and wherever it flows, it will bring life.  There will be as many kinds of fish as there are in the Mediterranean Sea.  [So obviously this place is not in the Middle East] but the water in the marshes and ponds along the shore will not be made fresh.  They will remain there as a source of salt.  On each bank of the stream all kinds of trees will grow to provide food."
The River Quoile, Downpatrick  was where St Patrick first landed.  


c.385–461, Christian missionary, the Apostle of Ireland, b. Bannavem Taberniae (an unknown place in Britain, possibly near the Severn or in Pembroke). He was one of the most successful missionaries in history. In the winter of 432 Patrick landed near Saul and remained until spring, when he went to Tara and gained his first major converts. He defied the pagan priests of Tara by kindling the Easter fire on Slane, a nearby hill. This challenge to paganism created at first indignation, and subsequently respect, in the court of the high king. Tara became Patrick’s headquarters, and with a band of followers he successively converted Meath, Leitrim, Cavan, and W Ireland. Further details of his missions are only generally known.


By the 1950

The flooding in Downpatrick was serious.  The problem was solved in 1957 by the new tidal barrier which was built 2 miles downstream at Hare Island, creating Quoile Pond-age, an area where flood waters can safely gather before being discharged into Strangford Louch at each low tide.
Strangford Lough flows east into the Irish Sea which is also known traditionally as the British Mediterranean Sea.
Northern Ireland is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the north and the Irish Sea to the East.
According to local tourist info:
"The present freshwater lake was created by the construction of a tidal barrier across the estuary of the River Quoile in 1957. 
Ezekiel:  "There will be as many kinds of fish as there are in the Mediterranean Sea.  Wherever the stream flows, there will be all kinds of animals and fish."
Tourist info:
"The Quoile is rich in insects, providing food for fish such as rudd and eels.  In turn, these may be eaten by grey herons, cormorants, and grebes.  The Quoile attracts migrating wading birds in the spring and autumn.  In summer, swans and many breeding wildfowl appear."
"The resulting dramatic change from salt water to fresh water is illustrated by the succession of developing habitats rich in wild life.  The natural colonization of the former seashore has resulted in the marsh plants growing along the river fringes, with reed-beds, rushy grassland and alder or willow scrub in old muddy bays.  Woodland oak and ash is developing on the higher stony shores.  Periodic flooding maintains distinct zones of vegetation."
"On each bank of the stream all kinds of trees will grow to provide food."
Tourist info:
"Soon after the barrier was built, plants began to grow on the former seashore.  First grasses, then bushes and eventually trees arrived as a natural succession progressed."
"But the water in the marshes and ponds along the shore will not be made fresh.  They will remain as a source of salt."
Along the River Quoile is Salt island and Salt Lough producing 'salt'.
The Mound of Down located next to the River Quoile, was once known as the 'fortress in the marsh'.

Mound Of Down

There is much debate concerning this site. Some believe that it was the residence of Celtchar mac Ulthechair, the legendary Iron Age hero of the Ulster Cycle. If this is the case then by the early Christian period it had become the administration centre of the Dal Fiatach Kings. Others believe that both these establishments were located on Cathedral Hill.

You can get to the top via the western end of the mound where there are spectacular views of the Mourne Mountains and the Quoile estuary


The Normans built a castle on top of an earlier large egg-shaped manmade earthworks which has a steep bank and wide outer ditch.

This view was taken from an aircraft coming in to land at Belfast City (Harbour) airport in 2005.

Only 6.5 km S of the centre of Belfast , "The Giant's Ring" is an impressive and atmospheric monument,

consisting of a circular bank some 3.5 metres high enclosing a large space some 180 metres in diameter and 2.8 hectares in area.
The henge seems to be one of those monuments erected by the late-Neolithic "Beaker People" of N Britain
who were responsible also for the large free-standing stone circles at Ballynoe and Newgrange,
as well as the stone circle backed by a henge at Lough Gur.

E of the centre of the enclosure is a small passage-tomb whose vestigial passage faces W,
and which may have been erected (with a tumulus) a little before or a little after the henge.

Only 6.5 km S of the centre of Belfast via the Malone Road and Minnowburn Beeches, The Giant's Ring is an impressive and atmospheric monument, consisting of a circular bank some 3.5 metres high enclosing a large space some 180 metres in diameter and 2.8 hectares in area. At least three of the 5 irregularly-spaced gaps in the henge are intentional, and possibly original. The henge seems to be one of those monuments erected by the late-Neolithic "Beaker People" of N Britain who were responsible also for the large free-standing stone circles at Ballynoe and Newgrange, as well as the stone circle backed by a henge at Lough Gur.

Excavations beyond the bank yielded evidence of more Neolithic activity

Michael Drosnin's Bible Codes: "Human nearby in Crypt", "North", "Tongue of Sea [Mouth of River Quoile] which is dead."
"In a field on top of a hill"
All these descriptions apply to Downpatrick and the Mound of Down.
Poem by 6th century Bard, St Fintan - pupil of St Germain/Merlin/Taliesin/St Columba - and it is most probably that St Germain was the author leaving us clues:
"The wife of Heremon of noble aspect
A rampart was raised around her house
For Tea, the daughter of Lughaid (God's House)
She was buried outside in her mound.
A habitation which was a Dun and a fortress.
[Note: strange that a qualified bard would say dun and fortress - because dun means fortress as in Dun da Lethglas]
The seat of kings it was called.
The princes, descendants of the Milesians.
I am Fintan the Bard
The historian of many tribes
In latter times I have passed my days
At the earthen fort above Temor (Tea Tephi Mor)."
King Aedan Mac Gabran (the real King Arthur) was an incarnation of Kuthumi.  His daughter, Princess Gemma married King Cairellus and their residence was at Dun da Lethglas. Fintan the bard became the tutor to their son - so therefore, he literally "passed my days at the earthen fort above Temor (Tea Tephi Mor).
"A rampart was raised around her house."
The Mound of Down is surrounded by several ramparts.
12th century Irish Bard:
"Where after her death was Tea's monument?
The grave, the great Mergech (Hebrew burial place)
A sepulchre [tomb] which has not been violated.
And she lies beneath this unequalled Tomb,
It is a mystery not to be uttered."
As mentioned before, Dun da Lethglas (the 'greensided place beside the stream') was the royal seat of the Dal Fiatach - the tribe to which Princess Tea Tephi and Heremon belonged in Ireland.
Info from Irish book.
"The Mound of Down is one of Ireland's major earthworks.  Somewhere underneath the Hill lies a royal site once inhabited by a king and his followers before that.  Its size and appearance are very similar to the fort of the kings of Tara, suggesting that the king was a very powerful ruler. A more recent description showed that the earthwork consists of a mound set within a pear-shaped banked enclosure, and may have been considered as a motte/bailey.  The bailey occupies the whole elevated area enclosed by a bank and shallow ditch.   We believe that much remains to be investigated lying hidden under the topsoil of centuries."
"In the 6th century AD it was recorded that there was a great church at Dun da Lethglas (Downpatrick). At that time the town was an important religious and academic centre.  A Dun was a circular fortified enclosure.  The fort takes up a vast extent of ground and comprehends at least three quarters of an English mile within its circuit."
Another clue discovered by Michael Drosnin - the Ark of the Covenant was hidden beneath a royal abode - a 'Tel' which is the Hebrew word for 'an ancient archaeological site - a mound of earth covering the remnant of ancient ruins.'
The Mound of Down was the headquarters of the Dal Fiatach of the Ulaid, the royal kings of Ulster (descendants of Princess TTM).
Info: "It is important to emphasise that the ruling Dal Fiatach supplied the ecclesiastical as well as the secular headship, and that this was likely to have been the chief reason for the choice of Dun da Lethglas as their ecclesiastical centre. "
"After St Patrick's death, in circa 493 AD, his remains were carried to Dun da Lethglas, a hill already crowned with the earthworks that enringed the fortress of the Ulaid."
"Dun da Lethglas is one of the six royal sites of Ireland named in early literature.  Nothing then is certain about this mysterious Mound and nothing more can be stated about its history until it can be excavated.  Since this earthwork is the largest in the north of Ireland, and is situated beside a town of such historical importance as Downpatrick, showing such potential for information about the past, it is to be hoped that the archaeologists of the Department of the Environment will make this a priority in their forthcoming programme of work." (2000)
Story by Taliesin/St Columba/Merlin/St Germain 6th century.
Pwyll goes to the top of a mound which is above a palace.  [So, if the mound is above the palace, then the mound is buried beneath].
The mound had a reputation of somehow being able to cause injury if one came too close to it.
[The Ark of the Covenant is protected by some kind of electrical discharge called Urim and Thummin].
Whilst sitting upon the mound, Pwyll met a princess who materialized from the vicinity of the mound - there had been many sightings of her as an apparition.
Behind the mystery is the painting titled Shepherds of Arcadia by Nicholas Poussin.
Using the Pythagorean system, Shepherds of Arcadia adds up to 88. 8 + 8 = 16 and 1 + 6 = 7.
Ark of the Covenant adds up to 70 minus 0 = 7.
In the Bible the Ark rested on the 7th month
King Solomon built the Temple to house the Ark of the Covenant in 7 years.
The Seventh Seal and the Number Seven.
In the Biblical book of Daniel, 12:4, Daniel is told to close the Book and put a seal upon it.
12 +4 = 16, 6 + 6 = 7. 
It is reputed that by utilizing mathematical diagrams, the position on the sarcophagus tomb in the painting of the Shepherds of Arcadia, has a hexagram - Seal of Solomon in the centre.  It is at this, that the three shepherds and shepherds are looking.  I believe it is the tomb of Princess TTM containing the Ark of the Covenant.
It was King Solomon (son of King David/Kuthumi) who built the first Temple in which to house the A/C and perhaps the 7th Seal mentioned in Revelation (by Kuthumi) corresponds.
"When on the sounding of the trumpet by the 7th angel, the Ark is discovered in Ireland as prophesied in Revelations II, verse 19, 'there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament. (excerpt from Life Understood, 1920)."
"Ezekiel 17:22 reads that the 'Tender Twig' [Princess TTM] is to be planted in a place described as 'eminent'.
Her name is derived from the Greek word Temoiria, which in Latin is interpreted 'Conspicio' and every place which is conspicuous and eminent...
Professor O'Riordain of University College, Dublin deals with the anme, giving it its ancient form as Teamhair na Riogh 'Tea Mur', the wall of 'Tea', and again 'a meeting place which is conspicuous and eminent' and in the Book of Leinster ' a place  from which there is a wide view.'
Interestingly, (and I only just beginning this research seriously), in Exekiel in the Bible, Princess Tea Tephi Mor is spoken only of as the 'Tender Twig'.  But the initial letters are stil 'TT'.  It is only in Irish legend that she is known as Tea Tephi Mor.  In Gemetria, the value of T T = 600 and Phi (as in Te-phi) is 500 - the 0's are discounted and so the total is 11 - which 'maybe' could refer to the twin pillars of Moses in the A/C.  The verses written about her in Irish legend were during the era of St Germain/St Columba/Merlin/Taliesin, and are attributed to his pupil, St Fintan - but behind St Fintan, would be St G.   I have already mentioned previously that the letters TT represent the twi pillars of Moses in 'Freemasonry'.
Now, ask yourself why a princess from 'Jerusalem' would be given the name of Tea Tephi Mor.

Mor as stated, is Celtic for Mound. None of the biblical names for the families of the Palestine/Jerusalem have her name.

I have always thought it curious that Princess Tea's name was Tephi : Te is still 'T' phoenetically and as mentioned on a previous occasion, TT (her initials) could represent Thirty Three whose verses in the Bible concern the A/C which formulates part of the initiations in Freemasonry.
If her name is a cipher, then think of it this way.
Tea = T
Te (for Tephi) = T
So, it is definitely TT
(Mor in Gaelic means a mound)
If these clues, then what does the phi represent?
Regarding Princess Tea Mor Tephi and the A of the C (and the Stone of Destiny) Her descendant, Fergus Mor (son of Erc) took the Stone of Destiny to Scotland.
Because I also do genealogy, it occurred to me that her name should/could be written as Tea Tephi Mor. I believe there are clues to her name. TT for the twin pillars of Moses = 33, and I discovered when I was writing in the new book about Iona, that Angel's Hill was had a Gaelic name of something for 'fairy' (can't remember it today) Mor.

And then I thought how strange it was that a daughter of Zedekiah, last king of Judah/Jerusalem, should have a Celtic surname of Mor.

The autobiography of queen Teia Tephi, that she wrote in her palace at Teltown, is called the "Book of Tephi Queen of Tara and Gibraltar". It is absolutely full of ancient-historical and prophetical information, including prophecies about the near future. It is a fascinating book written in verse, like the famous Irish Metrical Dindsenchas

A Brief History...

The Teltown Funeral Games were held for centuries to commemorate the death of Tea "Teia" Tephi (
queen Tailte - Tailtiu), the queen of all Ireland, who lived in her palace on Rath Dubh at Teltown and reigned in the sixth century B.C. These games were held in the form of a Fair and were not only to commemorate Teia Tephi and her death, but were also to help the people to remember The Perfect Laws of Freedom and Justice contained in The Torah, that she brought with her when she came to Ireland from Jerusalem, arriving in 583 B.C.

The word 'Torah' is Hebrew and means The Law and is the collective name for The Five Books of Moses, which contain God's Perfect Laws; Statutes; Judgments; Economic Policy; Agricultural Policy and Healthy Balanced Diet. The Five Books of Moses are The First Five Books of The Old Testament / Covenant of The Bible; the original copies of which are kept in The Ark of The Covenant, along with The Two Stone Tablets with The Ten Commandments written upon them.

Teia Tephi was the daughter of Zedekiah, the king of Jerusalem, who died in prison in Babylon after witnessing all of his sons being killed, shortly after the invasion and destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians in c.588 B.C. After the destruction of Jerusalem, Teia Tephi was taken by Jeremiah The Bible Prophet, along with The Lia Fail Stone (The Stone of Destiny / The Throne of Israel - the British peoples) and The Ark of The Covenant to Ireland for safety, stopping at Gibraltar; Breogan in Spain and Marazion in Cornwall on the way.

Before they were due to arrive in Ireland, Jeremiah was advised by God that there was going to be a rebellion against The Torah, and that he must take The Ark of The Covenant to a secret hiding-place until it was safe for him to bring it to Ireland. So he took The Ark in a separate ship and departed from Teia Tephi who was escorted to Ireland by Bres the son of Elatha, ruler of Cornwall and a fleet of 53 of his ships.

When Teia Tephi arrived in Ireland, landing at Howth, she was embraced by most of the Irish people, who are themselves Israelites descended mainly from the Tuatha de Danaan (
the tribe of Dan who was the fifth of Jacob/Israel's twelve sons) (as also are the Milesians) and the Zarah (of the Red Hand - Genesis 38:27-30) branch of the tribe of Judah. She then married Eochaidh Mac Duach, the Ard ri (high king) of Ireland and Tephi was acknowledged queen of all Ireland standing upon The Lia Fail Stone which she had brought with her from Jerusalem and had been placed upon the Inauguration Mound (An Forrad) at The Hill of Tara.

Teia Tephi then, with the help of her husband Eochaidh, began instituting The Torah, or God's Laws to Ireland. The Torah is perfectly fair and un-biased, uniting everyone, with no rich or poor, all under one system, with no corruption. Under The Torah, nobody can oppress anyone else by inflicting their own selfish opinion or laws and taxes on them, so nobody can put themselves over others (
all men were created equal in God's Eyes), thereby eliminating bribery and corruption. Eochaidh, who later on inherited the title Ollamh Fodhla from his teacher Jeremiah the Bible Prophet, is renowned in Irish history as being the Great Law-giver of Ireland, because he re-instituted The Torah (God's Law and true justice) to Ireland, and, as quoted by Eugene A. Conwell in his book "The Discovery of The Tomb of The Ollamh Fodhla" from the "Book of Lecan", Eochaidh built Duma na n-Giall - Teamur - The Mound of The Hostages at Tara.

As Ireland, up to that point, had been divided into many small kingdoms, each with its own king or warlord who had made up their own laws and taxes to make themselves rich, many of these kings and warlords didn't like The Torah, because under God's Laws they would have to redistribute the wealth that they had unfairly taken from the people. Then they would become their peoples' equals, or servants as a true king should be (
Deuteronomy 17:14-20), rather than falsely placing themselves above their people making the people slaves to them.

A huge battle then transpired, where all of the evil rulers of these small kingdoms, who didn't want to conform to The Laws of The Torah, rebelled against Teia Tephi in what was known as the Battle of Unna (
Destruction) or the Battle of the Second Moytura (plain of towers - in the Boyne Valley).

The Battle was held in the Boyne Valley near Slane, where Teia Tephi and her army defeated the rebels in one of the bloodiest battles in Ireland's history. A total of six thousand six hundred and sixty-eight people were killed in the battle, over two-thirds of whom were on the side of the rebels. Those killed in the battle from both armies were buried through-out the Boyne Valley.

Peace was then brought to all of Ireland as The Torah was fully re-instituted as National Law and Teia Tephi and Eochaidh ruled over all of Ireland from The Hill of Tara (
Taueragh - Torah).

At this point Jeremiah The Bible Prophet was advised by God that it was safe for him to bring The Ark to Ireland so he landed at Carrickfergus (
according to local legend) and The Ark of The Covenant was taken across country to The Hill of Tara. A special subterranean tomb was constructed beneath where Teamur - The Mound of The Hostages, built by Eochaidh mac Duach, now stands and, according to the Irish Dindsenchas (The History of the Eminences) The Ark of The Covenant was placed in it. It was then temporarily sealed until Teia Tephi's death when she was to be placed in the subterranean tomb with it, according to most ancient Irish historical documents.

Once The Ark was safely placed in the subterranean tomb, Jeremiah's mission for God was completed and he died and was buried in what is now known as Cairn T, the Tomb of Ollamh Fodhla, at Loughcrew. A stone inside Cairn T is inscribed with hieroglyphics that describe Jeremiah's boat journey with Teia Tephi from Jerusalem to Ireland and also gives astronomical calculations which give the dates when the Battle of Unna was fought and when Jeremiah died.

Teia Tephi had a palace built for herself at Teltown near Kells and lived there with her husband Eochaidh and they had four children. Their firstborn was a boy named Aedh who died in his teens and was buried in Teamur - Tephi's Wall (
now known as The Mound of The Hostages) at Tara. Their second born was a girl named Ainge and their third was Aengus who grew up to be Ard ri after his parent's death. Aengus was, according to his mother, very arrogant and had the grandest tomb in Ireland built for himself and was buried there at Newgrange (Brugh na Boangus - Brug Oengusa).


Teia Tephi knew that after she died the people would eventually forget her and The Perfect System of Law contained in The Torah that she brought with her to Ireland. Before she died on the 1st of August, 534 B.C. she asked the people to remember her and The Torah by holding Funeral Games in the vicinity of Teltown, where she lived, in her honour, around the 1st of August, every year.

The Ancient Rules of The Teltown Games...

The Teltown Funeral Games were originally set along the lines of a Fair rather than of actual competitive games and were designed to help people to remember The Laws of The Torah and to teach the young people how to behave themselves in the correct manner. Prizes were given at the games for best behaviour throughout the year and throughout the games. The rules of The Teltown Games are according to The Torah and are as follows:-

1. No wounding or robbing of any man; No trouble; No dispute; No reaving (
ravaging; taking by force, carrying off); No challenge of property; No suing; No Law-sessions; No evasion; No arrest.

2. A Fair without sin; without fraud; without reproach; without insult; without contention; without seizure; without theft; without redemption:

No man going into the seats of the women, nor woman into the seats of the men, shining fair, each in due order by rank in his place in the High-Fair.

Unbroken truce of the Fair the while through Erin (
Eire) and Albion (Britain) alike, while men went in and came out without any rude hostility.

Corn and milk in every stead, peace and fair weather for the Fair's sake, were granted (
by God) to the tribes of the (Danite) Greeks (who had migrated to Ireland as de Danaans and Milesians) for maintaining of Justice.

3. Forbidden for Teltown is gambling; Forbidden to ride through it; Forbidden, to look at it over the left shoulder, when leaving it for a meal.

The Three Heinous Spoils, Patrick forbade in it:-

a) stealing of oxen.
b) slaughter of milk cows.
c) burning of empty byres.

Patrick preached - so it is a judgment - that none who did such things should find peace, so long as Teltown shall stand, for ever, so long as its royal raths endure.

The Eastern Rath (
Airthir), the Rath of the evil West, the Rath of Lughaidh, the Rath of Lort, the Rath of Lore, the Rath of Cu, the Rath of Canu - Hail! The Rath of the Seed of Tadg, the triple rampart of Tailtiu.

The triple rampart of Tailtiu (
at Tara), famed beyond all lands, the spot where the kings used to fast, with laymen, with clerics, with captains of hundreds (by Tephi's Wall - Teamur - The Mound of The Hostages), so that no disease might be visited on the land of Erin.

From the Lamentation (
mourning) for Teia Tephi to the reign of Loegaire mac Neill was held a fair every single year, by the Firbolgs, who were there, and by the Tuatha de Danaan, by the children of Mil (Milesians) thereafter down to Patrick after the first coming of Christ.

In the triple rampart of Tailtiu about tierce, Jesus granted to Mac Eirc (
said Patrick) to take away the three plagues from Erin - it is not unknown. That the custom of Gall-cherd should be put away, the sinking of the ships off Bregmag, and the pestilence of the sons of Aedh Slane: to Mac Eirc it was no disgrace.

Till Patrick came after Christ was held the Fair at Teltown that [through teaching The Torah and true sportsmanship they] subdued [God's] Curses [written into The Torah as Penalty Clauses for breaking The Covenant].

The Teltown Fair and the teaching of good-behaviour from The Torah should be re-instituted (
according to Nostradamus) to bring back good weather and blessings from God, to all who keep it. It is said that during the reign of Teia Tephi (wrongly deified as Bo/Bovinda) and Eochaidh mac Duach, her husband (wrongly deified as the Daighda), under The Torah, it never rained except at night and that, when it didn't rain, there was sufficient dew to grow crops in great abundance and so the "Daighda's Cauldron" was therefore always full.

God promised in The Covenant, in The Torah, that if any people kept His Covenant He would Bless their land and make their crops grow in abundance* but if they broke it He would Curse the land and the people would perish§, by their own choice.

* Deuteronomy 28:12
The "I AM" shall open unto thee His good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.

§ Deuteronomy 28:18 The "I AM" shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken Me.

The Funeral Games were famous throughout the known world and were visited by people from all over the world to commemorate the peace; prosperity and unity that The Torah (
God's Law) had brought to Ireland and all peoples that lived by it, under God's Blessings written into it.

There were Three Marvels connected with the Funeral Games at Teltown, which may have been prophecies rather than past events, as they appear to tie-in with some of the Prophecies of Nostradamus and The Scriptures.

The Three Marvels of Teltown are said to be:-

1) The Headless Man.
2) The boy's manikin son.
3) The descent of a priest from heaven (the sky).

Marvel number three appears to correspond directly with lines two and three of the following of Nostradamus' Prophecies:-

Quatrain 10,72

L'an mil neuf cens nonante neuf sept mois
Du ciel viendra un grand Roi d'effrayeur
Rescuciter le grand Roi d'Angoulmois.
Avant apres Mars regner par bon heur.

The year
1999 seven (sept) month (July or Sept-ember)
From heaven will come a great King of Terror/Alarm/Warning (
Prophet -
Elijah - see The Old Testament Book of Malachi, chapter 4
He will bring back to life The Great King of Israel (
Christ from the Tribe
of Joseph/Ephram - Genesis 49:10; 22-24 k.J.A.V. of Bible
Before (
warning) after war (Armageddon) reigns in good (God's) time -
the Seventh i.e. the Sabbath Millennium - the third millennium A.D.).

In Scripture in the Book of the Apocalypse/Revelation we are told that Christ has eyes like flames and of course if this happens and He has eyes like flame* then no-one will be able to see His head because of His eyes and that would then make more sense out of and fulfill the first marvel of Teltown - The Headless Man. Christ, of course is The High-Priest of all time (
Hebrews 5:5-6) and His coming would also simultaneously fulfill the third marvel too - the descent of a priest from heaven.

* Apocalypse/Revelation 19:12
His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a NAME written, that NO man knew, but HE himself (Rev. 2:17)

The second marvel of Teltown - 'The boy's manikin son', doesn't seem to fit in harmony with the other two marvels. It could possibly be a mis-translation and be supposed to say 'The Father's mannequin Son', in which case it would fit perfectly with the other two marvels and the other prophecies. The Father being God and His mannequin (
model) Son would of course be Christ, God's well-beloved (model - mannequin) Son, in whom He is well pleased.

Proposal for 2000 Teltown Fair & Funeral Games...

To promote Kells, Teltown; Oldcastle, Loughcrew and the surrounding areas in Co. Meath and its amazing rediscovered history and heritage; to help to reintroduce the teachings and values of The Torah that Teia Tephi brought to Ireland and to bring the whole community closer together; we wish to restart the Teltown Fair and Funeral Games, during the July - August school holidays, at the height of the Summer tourist-season, when the weather should be most favourable for outdoor events. The Fair should be held around the 1st. of August as that was the date that Teia Tephi, whose death the fair was always held to commemorate, died.

The Fair was traditionally held around Teia Tephi's palace at Teltown (
Rath Dubh), but as it grew in popularity the area needed to hold it made it expand further afield. Eugene A. Conwell; who discovered the Tomb of Ollamh Fodhla, on Tuesday the 9th of June in 1863, at the Cemetery of Taillte at Loughcrew, nr. Oldcastle; wrote in his book "Discovery of the Tomb of Ollamh Fodhla" that the Teltown Fair's larger events were held between Teltown and Oldcastle on the plain between Loughcrew and the Tower of Loyd. This would have brought together the people of Oldcastle; Kells, which included Teltown and the surrounding area of Meath. Many of the people of Kells have great affection for Oldcastle/Loughcrew which should facilitate their joint co-operation in the Teltown Fair and may spring from former times, when the Fair was held jointly by their ancestors.

The aforementioned time of year for the Fair (
July-August) would be ideal to work in with the schools because it coincides with school holidays. Also, parents could take their children to the Fair as an ideal family holidays activity, to get them out of the house and keep them out of mischief, where there would be something of interest to everyone in the whole family. Oldcastle and Moynalty, whom we hope to include, both already have fairs and displays, every year, that are held around this time of year and we believe that incorporating the Teltown Fair theme and dress to them, would make them even more inviting to tourists and locals alike.

The Fair would be set in the theme of the ancient Teltown Funeral Games that were held for centuries and the ancient rules of the games and The Laws of The Torah would apply to the Fair, including the traditional system of rewards for the best-behaved children at the Fair and throughout the year.

We suggest that Kells; Oldcastle; Moynalty and other interested communities get together to hold the Teltown Fair with as many traditional events, activities and demonstrations at the Fair as possible, such as arts and crafts; weaving and spinning; face-painting for kids; traditional fancy dress; stalls with local produce; Horse and Donkey rides; traditional and popular music; musical instrument-making; Astronomy*; wood and leather-work demonstrations and other cottage-industries. There could be daily or weekly feature-events such as a Traditional Ploughing-Match; Fishing Competition; River Kayaking; Archery; Small-Bore Shooting; Trap or Skeet Shooting; Environmental-Awareness displays; Agricultural-displays; Irish language displays; the possibilities are endless and we are open to any suitable suggestions... We also suggest that the Teltown Fair be advertised world-wide to bring much needed tourism to this beautiful area of Royal Meath, that has such a wealth of fascinating historical heritage sites to promote and visit, along with the Historical Teltown Fair.

* David Moore of Astronomy and Space Magazine offered in 1999 to bring a large telescope and to provide people to man and operate it for the full period of The Teltown Fair and to come himself too.

The event would be run as a huge country-fair, to give people the opportunity to get out of the noise and hussle and bussle of town and city life, to give them a chance to try country-style activities and experience the Ancient Celtic History and Heritage of Co. Meath in a hands-on way. Minibus tours to all of the historical-sites in Royal Meath, including Teltown; the Loughcrew Cemetery of Taillte; the Boyne Valley Cemetery and The Hill of Tara, among others could be run, giving detailed information about the combined history of the whole province and walking tours of each of the sites as they are visited.

Advertising for the fair can be done cheaply and efficiently as well. The cost of a Web-Page on the Internet is minimal or free and we already have all of the relevant information about the history of Kells, Teltown; Loughcrew; etc. and of the Teltown Games prepared and up on our own Web-Site that others could access and link to. We have booklets prepared and ready for print for each of the historical sites in Royal Meath and also have 'The Book of Tephi, queen of Tara and Gibraltar', which gives a complete and detailed account of the sixth century B.C. history related to this area.

Advertising in Dublin and other larger cities is easily covered too, most holiday-makers travelling around Ireland stay in either Hostels or Bed & Breakfasts, and most Hostels and Bed & Breakfasts have notice-boards on which posters or flyers can be placed. The cost of these posters and flyers are minute, considering the huge numbers of people who travel through these places and take the time to look at notice-boards etc., looking for things to do and see in the country they are travelling through.

I firmly believe that the Teltown Fair could easily be re-introduced this year to permanently put Kells; Teltown; Oldcastle and Moynalty on the tourism and heritage map, bringing a much needed boost to the local economies of Kells; Oldcastle; Moynalty; etc. and their communities, hopefully creating new interesting and sustainable jobs to keep the young people from having to leave and go to the big cities to work.

The Teltown Games would also help to reintroduce the amazing rediscovered heritage of Royal Meath with its tremendous historical significance, which affects not only everyone on the island of Ireland, but also the people of Britain, America and the Commonwealth, amongst many others, as it describes and proves our collective true history and heritage as being descended from The Twelve Tribes of Israel who were led out of Slavery in Egypt by Moses and given the Perfect Laws of Liberty contained in The Torah to follow, so that we would never become slaves to anyone ever again (
providing we obey The Laws of The Torah).

The Book of Kells is referred to in the Annals of Ulster as being "The Chief Relic of the Western World." It contains 678 illustrated calf-skin or vellum pages with the last two being without illustration. The major part of the Book was probably written in the Columban Monastery's scriptorum on the island of Iona, in Scotland and was coloured using natural dyes, made by the monks. The ink has not faded in 1000 years.

There is a lot of nonsense talked about the four symbols that are used in the Book of Kells:- LION; MAN; CALF and EAGLE. Most historians say that they are supposed to represent the four Apostles. They do NOT represent the Apostles but represent the Twelve Tribes of Israel, to whom the Apostles were sent, by Christ.

The four symbols
are the four Brigade-Emblems of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, who camped around "The Tabernacle" in the wilderness during their "forty year punishment and wandering", in the wilderness under Moses.

The encampment was square, with three tribes camped on each of the four sides. The centre tribe of the three, on each side was the Brigade-Leader, so their standard was the dominant one, on each of the four sides. Those four tribes were Judah; Reuben; Joseph/Ephraim and Dan.

Judah's standard is a LION; Reuben's standard is a MAN; Joseph / Ephraim's standard is a wild-ox CALF (which today has become a Unicorn) and Dan's standard is an EAGLE.

The Irish people are mostly descended from Dan and came to Ireland at various times, under various names, as they migrated by different routes and arrived at different times, having picked up new names along the way. One of those names makes their identity more obvious than the others and that name is the Tuatha de Danaan - the Tribe of Dan; who was the fifth of Jacob/Israel's twelve sons. Jacob/Israel's twelve sons fathered the twelve tribes of Israel.

Prior to the De Danaans were the Nemidhians (Sons of Heaven) who came from
Carthage which was a Phoenician Danite settlement or Sanctuary (Nemidh), in what is now Tunisia. The Phoenician sailors of ancient history were mostly Israelites from the tribes of Dan; Gad and Simeon. Phoenicia was a region not a country, just as Europe is a region and not a country.

After the Tuatha de Danaans came to Ireland, there were, at various times, further immigrations of Danites under the name Milesians (sons of Mil, who was a Danite warrior, from which the name milesian later came to mean warrior) and of course later still as Dan-ish Vikings and Norsemen.

EAGLE is the tribal-standard or ensign/emblem of Dan and the Danites discovered America in the B.C. era and again as Vikings (Eric the Red; Leif Ericsson; etc.), long before Columbus*, and later helped to populate it as Irish immigrants, which is why there is Dan's Eagle holding the "Olive" and "Arrows" of Joseph their brother (Joseph's secondary emblems), on the American Coat-of-Arms.

* Tradegoods from ancient Carthage have been found in various locations in North America, as recorded in a book written by an eminent Harvard University professor called Barry Fell.

The four tribal standards previously mentioned as being on the pages of the famous Book of Kells are also mentioned by Christ to his Apostle John in Christ's Apocalypse/Revelation.

Revelation/Apocalypse 4:6 And before the Throne [there was] a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the Throne, and round about the Throne, [were] four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
4:7 And the first beast [was] like a
LION (Judah), and the second beast like a CALF (Ephraim), and the third beast had a face as a MAN (Reuben), and the fourth beast [was] like a flying EAGLE (Dan).
4:8 And the
four beasts had each of them six wings about [him]; (three tribes - each tribe with two wings) and [they were] full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
4:9 And
WHEN those (four) beasts (12 tribes) give glory and honour and thanks to Him that sat on the Throne, Who liveth for ever and ever,
4:10 The four and twenty elders (the Prophets) fall down before Him that sat on the Throne, and worship Him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast
THEIR crowns before the Throne, saying,
4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created.

Jesus told his disciples and the writers of the four Gospels:- Matthew; Mark; Luke and John to go to the "
lost" sheep of the "House of Israel", the Ten "Lost" Tribes scattered abroad and to make disciples of all nations. James the Lord's brother later wrote to all twelve tribes*; after the final dispersion of the remnant of the remaining two tribes by the Romans; in his letter in the New Testament. The four emblems represent the tribes of Israel to whom the Gospels were to be preached and that is why they are, quite rightly, on the pages of the "Book of Kells", in Ireland, because the Irish are Israelites, as I have previously explained.

* James 1:1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Christ Jesus, to the twelve tribes (of Israel) which are scattered abroad: Greetings.

According to the Freemason, Robert Ambelain, in his work titled Le Martinisme (1946):

                    “In Chapter XXV of Exodus, paragraphs 16 and 17, the Eternal One, having given instructions for the construction of the Ark of the
                     Testimony, a little box two and a half cubits long, and one and a half cubits high and wide, tell us the following:

                     ‘And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee’.

                    “The ‘Testimony’ were the two tablets.  Why this expression?  Because these plaques of stone will be, for Moses and the People, 
                    the decisive proof of the reality of the marvel!  Contemplating the Tablets, Moses, could never, ever, with the procession of time,
                    doubt the basis of his mission…Never would the theurgist be able to believe that he had ever dreamed it!  The ‘Tablets’ would 
                    be there, as a testimonial, through the supernatural imprint they had received, that IVHV had truly manifested, right before the 
                    leader of Israel.”

                   “The text of Exodus explains that they were ‘written on both sides’.  This gives us Ten Commandments distributed on four sides!  
                    This is neither easy nor harmonious.  But if one is willing to acknowledge that they behaved like two stone Pantacles, everything
                    becomes clear.  For all Pantacles have two sides, both engraved with appropriate symbols.”

                   “If two ‘Tablets’ – that is to say, a double Testimony’ were necessary, it is because as Genesis tell us (Chapter I), Elohim is a ‘double’
                    god:  “God made Man in his own image, male and female created he them’.  Hence the expressions of ‘the left hand’ and the ‘right
                    hand’ of God.  This duality is recalled in the two Cherubim which in the words of Chapter XXV of Exodus (18,19), must stretch their
                    wings above the Ark and the Mercy Seat of pure gold which dominated it.  Proof that the presence of the Eternal One, God of Israel,
                    was linked to the two ‘Pantacles’ which  are the two ‘Tablets’, is also in Exodus which tells us:

                    ‘And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark: and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.’

                   ‘And there I will meet with thee and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which
                    are upon the Ark of the Testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel.’ (Exodus XXV,

                    “The God of Israel could only be manifested in the Holy of Holies, above the Ark of the Covenant, containing the famous
                     ‘Testimony’…  For there, where the Ark is, there is the Elohim:  ‘Thou shalt make a Sanctuary, and I shall live there among you…’”

                     Exodus 27 verses 34,35:  ‘Put the lid on the Covenant Box.  Outside the Most Holy Place, put the table against the north side of the
                     Tent and the lamp-stand against the south side.’

                     Aaron’s rod (accordingly to Numbers 17, verse 8) produced almond blossoms.  According to Robert Ambelain, the ‘almond (shaked)
                    is the tree of ‘those-who-watch (shakad), that is to say the Angels whom the Book of Enoch calls the ‘Watchers of Heaven’.  It is the
                    Wand the Gods of the Armies of Heaven, the Elohim Sabbaoth, required of its priests.”

                     “In the Book of Jeremiah (1, 11 and 12), the translators have translated this verse in different ways, hesitating to translate shaked
                     (almond) or shaked (watcher).  Sometimes one reads:

                     ‘The word of the Lord came to me with the question:  What do you see, Jeremiah? I see a rod of an almond tree, I replied.  Then 
                     the Lord said to me: Well have you seen, for I am watching to fulfill my word.’”

                     “On other occasions it is translated:

                     ‘I replied: Lord, I see a rod of an almond tree.  The voice replied: Well have you seen.  For I am a Rod which watches for the
                      fulfillment of my Words…’”

                    “Now, the rod which watches is incontestably a Candle.  Around the Christian altar, Candles symbolize the Angels of the Celestial
                    Court, and the two candles which must be made of beeswax (according to the Canon), on either side of the vertical crucifix, are 
                     the two great Archangels [Raphael and Michael].   And the Book of Enoch calls the Angels the ‘Watchers of Heaven’.”  These
                     ‘Watchers’ of heaven would appear to be the Masters of the Great White Brotherhood.

                     Psalm 45 mentioned earlier, tells of the marriage between Heremon, the Milesian prince, and the Princess of Judah – 
                     Tea Tephi Mor.

                     In Psalm 47, 47 + verse 9 = 56; 5 + 6 =11 which could possibly allude to the twin pillars of Moses concealed within the Ark of the

                     Psalm 46, verse 4 is of interest because it is the very next psalm after the Royal Wedding of Princess Tea Tephi Mor and it is of
                     significance because it further aids in identifying the location of where the princess was buried.  In this psalm we are told “There 
                     is a river, the streams where of shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.” The ‘tabernacle’
                     is related to the Ark of the Covenant.

                     According to Steven Sora in his article which appeared in the magazine called Atlantis Rising, (November/December 2005), titled
                     Bacon, Shakespeare & the Spear of Athena:

                    “Under King James he [Francis Bacon/St Germain] also translated what would be called the King James Version of the Bible.   
                     In Psalm 46 the forty-sixth (46th) word down from the first verse is ‘Shake’ while the forty-sixth (46th) word from the end is ‘Spear’.” 
                     This once again helps us to identify the author, Francis Bacon – St Germain.

                      It is regarding one of the poems of Taliesin.

                     “I was three periods in the Castle of Arianhod.
                       I have been in an uneasy chair above Caer Sidhe,
                      and the whirling round without motion between three elements.
                      Am I not a candidate for fame, to be heard in song?
                      The first word of the cauldron, when was it spoken?
                      Is it not the cauldron of the chief of Annwm in its fashion…?”

                      (Taliesin/Merlin/St Columba/St Germain, 6th century AD)

                      “A rampart was raised around her house”
                      For Tea, the daughter of Lughaidh (God’s House)
                      She was buried outside in her mound,
                      A habitation which was a Dun and a fortress…”

                      (St Fintan, the Bard, 6th century AD)

                      The ‘elements’ are represented in ‘Alchemy/Magic’ which appear in many of the legends of Merlin and Arthur. i.e. Fire, Air, 
                      Water, Earth, as explained in a previous chapter.  According to C.W, Leadbeater, in his book titled The Hidden Life in 
                      Freemasonry these elements formulate part of the ritual in Freemasonry.

                      George F. Jowett in his book titled Drama of the Lost Disciples was quoted earlier as saying that “the story of the search for the 
                      Holy Grail by the Knights of the Round Table carries a double meaning.”

                      “It is generally believed that the search was for the Cup of the Last Supper…” “On the other hand, the word Grail in old English
                       means ‘elements’. 

                      "Robert Graves, in his book titled the White Goddess questions the relationship of Castle Sidhe to Castle Arianhod, as in, were 
                       they the same place?  According to Robert Graves, the word ‘Sidhe’ [pronounced ‘she’] “is a round barrow fortress belonging 
                       to the prime magicians [Druids] of Ireland.” “…either on an island in the river or the sea where his [King Arthur’s] spirit lived 
                       under the charge of oracular priestesses, but his soul went to the stars and there hopefully awaited rebirth in another king.”

                       She [Princess Tea Tephi Mor] was buried outside in her mound,

                       A habitation which was a Dun and a fortress…” (St Fintan the Bard 6th century AD)

                       ‘Sidhe’ (pronounced ‘shee’) also means a mound.   Robert Graves informs us that the “Sidhe were such skilful poets that even 
                        the Druids were obliged to go to them for spells that they needed;  it seems likely that the original Caer Sidhe where the 
                        Cauldron of Inspiration was housed was a barrow…for these barrows were fortresses with tombs below. 

                        Robert Graves from his book titled The White Goddess was also previously quoted as stating that the uneasy chair is the 
                        ‘perfect chair’ in Caer (Castle) Sidhe - ‘the Elysian fortress’, Isles of the Blessed, where the Cauldron was housed, and according 
                        to John Matthews in his book titled The Household of the Holy Grail (1990) “in the course of literary transmission, the home of 
                        the original Grail story … it is revealed that the Grail Castle is established in Ireland.  The Fisher King dwells on the island in 
                        one of the most beautiful places in the world.”

                        Because the real King Arthur – Aedan Mac Gabran’s daughter, Princess Gemma lived at the royal palace of the Dal Fiatach in 
                        Dun da Lethglas, in the 6th century AD, it may be that was indeed his residence too. 

                        ‘The Castle of the Perfect Ones’, found in the Spoils of Annwm was written by Taliesin/Merlin/St Columba/St Germain in the 
                         6th century, the same period of St Fintan the bard (who was Columba’s student).  A castle is also a palace and as indicated 
                         earlier in this chapter, it was where the Great White Brotherhood (the ‘Perfect Ones’) resided who dwelt in the Land of the 
                         North Wind.

                        The Land of the North Wind refers to Hyperborea.
In Greek mythology, according to tradition, the Hyperboreans were a mythical people who lived to the far north of Greece. Their land, called Hyperborea, or Hyperboria ("beyond the Boreas (north wind)"), was perfect, with the Sun shining twenty-four hours a day.

The Greeks thought that Boreas, the god of the north wind, lived in Thrace, and therefore Hyperborei was an unspecified nation in the northern parts of Europe and Asia. Alone among the Twelve Olympians, Apollo was venerated among the Hyperboreans: he spent his winter amongst them. For their part the Hyperboreans sent mysterious gifts, packed in straw that came first to Dodona and then were passed from people to people until they came to Apollo's temple on Delos (Pausanias). Theseus and Perseus also visited the Hyperboreans.

In Greek maps from the time of Alexander the Great, Hyperborea, shown variously as a peninsula or island, is located beyond France and has a greater latitudinal than longitudinal extent. Apparently Hyperborea is a combined notion of present day Britain and Norway/Sweden. Other description put in the general area of the Ural Mountains

                         From information contained in Peter Dawkins’ book The Great Vision we learn the following:

                        “It should be noted that when Jesus called James and John ‘Boanerges’, an  Aramaic term meanings ‘sons of Thunder’, he 
                        was referring to the Word of God and to the fact that these two disciple-initiates were indeed initiates, baptized with the Holy
                        Spirit. Similarly when he called Peter and Andrew ‘sons of Jonah’, he was referring to the same Baptism (by IOA, as in Iona, 
                        the Dove and initiateship).  There was in fact a Mystery school operating amongst the Essenes at the time of Jesus, which led
                        suitable candidates through the paths of initiation - Lesser and then Greater.  When an initiate completed the Lesser Degrees 
                        and entered the Greater Degrees, he was referred to as a ‘son of Jonah’, the Dove.” 

                        “Another term was also in current usage, but had become misapplied through its popularization; that is ‘son of the Torah’, 
                        where Torah is the name for the Law or Word of God, equivalent to the Egyptian Tot or Thoth and the Hyperborean Thor (as 
                        in ArThor).”

                        “Except seven, none returned from Caer Vediwid (the Castle of the Perfect Ones)”

                        It would appear that the ‘Castle of the Perfect Ones’ in Taliesin’s poem, refers to the Great White Brotherhood. The ‘Perfect 
                        Ones’ are said to have dwelled in Hyperborea (‘the Land of the North Wind’).  John the Beloved (Kuthumi) who wrote the book 
                        of Revelation in the 1st century AD, refers to a throne and the seven spirits of God:   “…and all around the throne there was a
                        rainbow the colour of an emerald…From the throne came flashes of lightening, rumblings, and peals of thunder.  In front of 
                        the throne seven lighted torches were burning, which are the seven spirits of God.  Also in front of the throne there was what
                        looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.” (Excerpts from Revelation 4).  

                       The ‘Seven’ mentioned in Taliesin’s poem, and in Revelation would be the Seven Great Archangels, also referring to the Great
                       White Brotherhood.  In his book titled The Great Vision, Peter Dawkins explains as follows:  “The Seven Great Archangels give
                       form (in terms of thought) to the Seven Rays of Light, which in turn are the vibrational impulses of the Seven Logoi or spiritual
                       Principles.  As one great Thought, they are known as the Seven Spirits – the seven creative modes of the one Holy Spirit…”

                      “The ‘North’ is known as the Place or Seat of Government, and the ‘Mount of Congregation’ of the Lord is in the north, where 
                      the Assembly of the Holy Ones is to be found.”

                      “The ‘north wind’ is the creative Breath of God: and Hyperborea, ‘the land of the north wind’, is the source from which the 
                      north wind comes.”

                      “On earth, Hyperborea has a special relationship to the country of Britain…”    “Esoterically, Britain is the heart-abode of the
                      incarnate Dohv and the principal home-land of the great teachers of humanity from the most ancient times.  The history and 
                      destiny of Britain is connected with this, and this important (but esoteric) fact lies behind the works of Francis Bacon.”

                      The Lords of the Seven Rays were discussed in my book titled Masters of the Mystical Rose A History of the Grail Family.  
                      St Germain, as the Master for the Age of Aquarius, is Head of the Violet or Purple Ray and according the theosophist, C. W.
                      Leadbeater, St Germain has always been recognised as the Head of Freemasonry within the Masonic lodges.

In his book titled The Household of The Grail, John Matthews brings up the subject of certain of the Rays stating that the Purple 
                      Ray is of devotional mysticism.  “You must balance the Rays in your training, and you will find in each tradition the elements 
                      which connect it with all the other traditions.”

                      “On the Green Ray – the Celtic nature Ray, you will find the connection with the Purple Ray through Celtic Saints, such as 
                      St Bride
[Brigid], St Columba [St Germain] and many others.  You will find the link with the Hermetic tradition also, through 
                      the Magi Merlin, who is very important, and is the Master of the Celtic Ray in these islands [Great Britain]…you will find the link 
                      with the Celtic tradition through Grail legends and the Arthurian cycle, and with the Hermetic tradition through the Mysteries.”

                     “In the Hermetic tradition you will find the link with Christian aspects through the Rose and the Cross and with the Celtic aspect
                      through Merlin again.”

                      “…and all around the throne there was a rainbow the colour of an emerald.” (Revelation 4)

                       Obviously the ‘emerald’ mentioned in Revelation 4, pertains to the Tribe of Dan who established themselves in Ireland and 
                       whose tribal gemstone as stipulated in the Bible, was the

                      The  castle/palace of the 'Perfect Ones' was located upon an island where the sacred Mysteries were taught.  This place which
                      could be described as an ecclesiastical centre which was in operation during Taliesin’s time, because that is when he wrote 
                      about it and thus it was in the 6th century AD, i.e. that of ‘Merlin’ and King Arthur.

                      Dun da Lethglas in the North, was once an island (and this is explained further below).

                      Reliable sources verify that Dun da Lethglas (also known as Dun Lethglaise) was indeed the headquarters of the Dal Fiatach of 
                      the Ulaid - the royal kings of Ulster of the tribe of Dalriata who were descended from Princess Tea Mor Tephi and King Heremon,
                      and that what today is known as Cathedral Hill was their ecclesiastical centre.

                      According to the author J. Frederick Rankin, in his book titled Down Cathedral:

                     “It is important to emphasise that the ruling Dal Fiatach supplied the ecclesiastical, as well as the secular headship, and that this
                      was likely to have been the
chief reason for the choice of Dun Lethglaise as their ecclesiastical centre.  The monastery at Dun
                       Lethglaise continued to play an integral part in the prestige of the dynasty.”

                      The place which Ezekiel is describing the new Zion, consists of a river with a stream, marshes and ponds along the shore.  
                      The River Quoile is in parts, a river, and a stream with marshes and ponds hence the term ‘Pond-age’ mentioned above.
                      According to Ezekiel the river flows through the land to the east and he compares it with the Mediterranean Sea, therefore we 
                      know he is not talking of the actual Mediterranean Sea itself.  Northern Ireland is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the north
                      and the Irish Sea to the east.  It has previously been mentioned that according to Anthony Wilson, discussing the barony of 
                      Lecale in which Downpatrick is situated: “The shores of the barony are enclosed by the Irish Sea, which has been called ‘The
                      British Mediterranean’.”  “Lecale continued as an island right up to the 18th century when the first attempts began to be made 
                      to drain the marshes and shut out the tidal forces of the sea.”

                      The name of the goddess Arianhod means ‘silverwheel’ and she is regarded as the patron of the bards and of Inspiration 
                      (Annwm).  Arianhod is also known as Ariadne. Her name means ‘most holy’ from the Greek ‘ari’ and adnos.  In mythology, 
                      Ariadne was rescued by the god Dionysus, and after he married her, he placed her wedding garland in the sky as a constellation,
                      the one we know as the Corona Borealis. 

                      This star system appears east of Bootes and lies in the north, resembling a crown hence the name ‘Corona’.  In ancient Arabia 
                      it was called the ‘Bright Dish’. (Reference has been given in previous chapters to Dionysus and the Mysteries).    

                      Upon the subject of Ariadne, it is pertinent here to refer to what was mentioned in the prophecies of Merlin (Taliesin/St Germain)
                      given in the first chapter of our story. 

                     ‘But his gates shall lie hid in the interstices of Ariadne’s crown.’

                      “Ariadne’s crown, which is one of the celestial constellations, who left the world in Saturn’s reign, called the golden age.  
                      Ariadne’s crown here symbolizes the advent of the Golden Age which shall cause wars to cease.”

                      The Golden Age is heralded by St Germain, the Master for the Age of Aquarius and Lord of the 7th Ray which is the 
                      Violet/Purple Ray.

                     ‘Gates’ could mean entrance to a location; ‘Interstice’ means a ‘crevice’ or ‘opening’ which may also pertain to an entrance.  For 
                      all intents and purposes, the cryptic verse by Merlin regarding Ariadne may be referring to the hidden/concealed Ark of the
                      Covenant.  And, the star system of Ariadne is in the north.

                      According to Robert, “I was three periods in the Castle of Arianhod” means that the Castle of Arianhod “is to be in a royal palace
                      awaiting resurrection…”

                      Robert also informs us that the poet, Taliesin, is referring to the fact that he spent time there.   As St Columba/Merlin, Taliesin 
                      would have spent time visiting the palace of the kings of Ulster, descendants of the tribe of Dan, whose royal abode was at Dun 
                      da Lethglas in the north of Ireland. 

                      Robert Graves informs that in Taliesin’s story, “the tribes of Amathaon and Gwydion in the Cad Goddeu encounter, were intent 
                      on keeping the secret of Achren...” and he connects the story the Tuatha de Danaan - the Tribe of Dan to which Prince Heremon,
                      the husband of Princess Tea Tephi Mor belonged.

                      In Taliesin’s story, Pwyll goes ‘to the top of a mound which is above a palace’.

                      “Lord”, said one of the Court, “it is peculiar to the mound that whoever sits upon it cannot go thence without ever receiving 
                      wounds or blows, or else a wonder,” which possibly applies to the Urim and Thummim buried with the Ark of the Covenant.

                      The story then relates that whilst Pwyll sat upon the mound, he met a princess upon a white horse who materialized from the
                      vicinity of the mount.  The story does not enlighten us any further about the secret of the mound for obviously it is not meant to.  
                      The secret is to remain a mystery.

                      However, it is rather fascinating that the mound was ‘above a palace’.  For the mound to be above the palace, it would mean 
                      that the palace was buried beneath the mound.

                      Although we will come to the story of the mysterious Presbyter John [Kuthumi] further on in our story, his legend began 
                      circulating in the 11th century AD. This was a century prior to the advent of the Merlin and Arthurian legends created by Geoffrey 
                      of Monmouth and five hundred years before the founding of Presbyterianism.  Presbyter John stated that his Sceptre was an
                      Emerald and that he was a Christian king who lived in a land of Paradise where at certain times the waters sank, thus permitting
                      access to a sacred shrine in which there hung a silver vessel/cauldron.  The fact that the waters sank, would indicate that the 
                      place would be one of tidal flows and marsh-land. 

                     “There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.”  
                     (Excerpt from Psalm 46)

                     “And before the portals of the cold place, the horns of light [Urim and Thummim?] shall be burning.”

                     (Spoils of Annwm Taliesin/Merlin/St Germain)

Ezekiel who gave us the story of the Princess, describes the new Temple of Zion as being near a river which in places also 
                     contains marshes and a stream.  This description adequately fits Downpatrick.  Ezekiel mentions the banks of the river as 
                     does Daniel.



The large stone crosses that dot the landscape of Ireland, as well as Scotland and other parts of Europe that were home to Celtic Christianity are an ongoing reminder of the early Celtic Church. Though each of the sculptures is different, there are some common characteristics. It's hard to say what's the most obvious characteristic of a Celtic, or High Cross: it's size or the ring surrounding the intersection of the cross. Massive is probably the best way to describe the size of many of the crosses that reached more than four metres in height. This one in Clonfert, County Offaly, is not that old, but still built in the old style.
