The Milesian Clanna Mileadha -Ennis – Ireland

About 1000 years before Christ a group of Celtic people travelled westward through Europe.  They  set out for Ireland, led by their chief Milesius and his eight sons. Their followers were called the Milesians or Clanna Mileadha.  Many died  in a great storm but amongst the survivors who reached Ireland were five sons of Milesius.  They settled and conquered the country.

Now 3000 years later descendants of the Milesians are retracing the steps of their ancient ancestors in a friendly visit, bringing their music, dances and song.
