Abstract

Author examines references to Armenia in Early Irish and other sources in his paper on ‘Armenia in Ireland: Indo-European Cognates, Medieval Legends, and Pseudo-Historical Accounts’. He begins by investigating the manner in which Armenian linguistic material was used by early Celtic scholars in their work on Indo-European reconstruction and proceeds to survey a range of Celto-Armenian isoglosses. He concludes by presenting works of eighteenth century Irish antiquarians who sought to discover the roots of the race of the Gaels in Armenia
