the first genealogical lesson of the galeic race the poets recall the first recorded genealogy of the race of the gaels of a grave of a noble family and of the race of the biblical noah son of lamech

2300bc approx Dinshenchus topographical poems of eireann number 77  probably transcribed in 1160ad by giolla gilla na naomh hua duinn

Sliabh gaelic sliab mountain lia stone betha the wild bulls home slieve beagh parish of clones in northern county Fermanagh sliabh betha slieve beagh range of high hills highest 1225 feet on the borders of county monaghan

Fermanagh and tyrone named for bith early invader of eire according to the pseudo history lebor gabala book of invasions bith cosair I behold the grave of a stranger from afar the monument of a leader crowned with sad splendour whose name brought in lustre was bith son of noah (was bith son of noah the second ard ri of eireann)  vast of vigour forty days by the tale before the doleful deluge to erin came the shortlived swarm in multitude in numbered array hither came bith skilled in battle marching before his noble wives five and twenty 25 + 1 = 26 wives by firm bond made up his family as for bith the chief-tains time was short shaking seized him and sore sickness his own wives dug a grave on the mountain for his burial from him high above the planets path is named sliabh betha the wild bulls home the body of the cosair who lived not long lies yet under the calm thou seest o Christ unshaken above all coasts thou didst not abandon bith eternally be mine no sadness in the dwelling yonder when I have told of each thing I see

Of the times and deaths of those kings gilla coemain the poet chanted circa 200ad

4 bith in his mountain a tale of love northward for sorrow after his only son      

thus the first named place in eire is marked for the ancestors gaelic generations to take note as biblical history is melded and moulded and melted into gaelic dinshenchas lore

and the first named genealogy family of the ancient gaelic race------the origins of the gaelic race

and hence the gaelic people were immersed in place name lore and genealogy from the begining of the world anno mundi or from the begining of the gael
