Tyrone. Strabane. Territory and history.

Territory and history.  With names unfamiliar, look at a map. Strabane, in County Tyrone, abuts Donegal, the County Donegal with lands that extend lands farther north than Northern Ireland.  The area is at the heart of struggles between Anglo-Norman invaders, then settling in; and indigenous Irish, losing their lands.  See its history from 2500 to now at

There was Christianity in Ireland before Patrick, see same site at

And, in 800BC, the Milesian invasian, produced ancient names like Eoghan and Conail; geneologist.
