GUEST,MV Spanish Influence in West Ireland (107* d) RE: Spanish Influence in West Ireland 24 Feb 09

I think the Armada connection is a myth I've heard of people of British ancestry being described as probably having Spanish ancestors from the time of the Armada because of their dark features. There was migration to these isles from France and Spain going way back. According to folklore the Gaels came to Ireland from Spain in ancient times. Both Britain and Ireland had many different waves of settlement over thousands of years. This explains why we have a variety of appearances.
