Brit-Am identifies the Irish as descended from a mixture of non-Israelite elements together with elements from the Tribes of Ephraim, Manasseh, Dan, Judah, Naphtali, Levi, and Simeon. In Southern Ireland (Eire) we have concluded that Dan and Simeon were prominent. In Ulster we found elements from Manasseh and Ephraim together with others inlcuding the Tribe of Asher. We submitted IRELAND to a Bible Codes test and so far came up with an association with Israel in general and David and Judah in particular, as shown below.
1. Ireland and Israel
At a sequence of 32. From Deuteronomy 1:37-40.
It shows IRELAND (orange on lime) intersected by YISRAEL (lime on green). ASHER (black is also found, black on yellow)
but since "ASHER" in Hebrew means "WHICH" and as such is a very common word as well as being the name of a Tribe we cannot attribute Tribal significance to the word unless other factors are present.
In fact in Ancient Hebrew (as found amongst the Yemenites Jews) one would say "Ve-Asher" and pronounce it as "We-Asher". In the North they would swallow (as did the Phoenicians) the word endings and so pronounce it like the English "which". Similarly the English "with" comes from the Hebrew "ve-et" pronounced as "we-eth".
At the very top however just above "ASHER" we see (yellow on red) the Hebrew Letters that are ther equivalent of EIRE the official Irish name for Ireland.
[Deuteronomy 1:36] SAVE CALEB THE SON OF JEPHUNNEH; HE SHALL SEE IT [Hebrew: HUE YiRENaH], AND TO HIM WILL I GIVE THE LAND THAT HE HATH TRODDEN UPON, AND TO HIS CHILDREN, BECAUSE HE HATH WHOLLY FOLLOWED THE LORD.
We see that the Hebrew letters in the colored extract above spell EIRE and that this word appears close to the word IRELAND in the matrix of Equidistant Letter Sequence (ELS) of 32 above.
This verse speaks of Caleb a major ancestral figure in Judah and incidentally indicates an additional connection between the Irish and Judah something that both sides may well find reason to not necessarily be overwhelmingly enthusiastic about.
2. Ireland and King David
At a sequence of 35 reversed. From 1-Chronicles 18:1-5.
It shows IRELAND (orange on lime) attached to the PHILISTINES (white on maroon) at the top.
Ireland is also attached to and surrounded by LeDaVID (FORDAVID , white on blue) or just DaVID .
The father of Galileo Galilei (the astronomer) recorded in 1581 a tradition amongst the Irish that they were descended from King David.
3. Ireland and the Jew?
At a sequence of 67 from Daniel 3:3-7.
matrix shows IRELAND (white on blue) with the word YEHUDI (white on red) meaning "Jew" or "Jewish" at the bottom.
Ireland is problematic from a Brit-Am point of view. People of Irish descent in the USA and elsewhere on the whole were pro-Jewish and pro-Zionist.
Individuals of Irish descent as well as Jews recognize a kinship with each other.
On the other hand the independent REPUBLIC OF IRELAND (EIRE) was pro-Nazi in WW2 and refused to accept Jewish refugees fleeeing from the Germans.
Nowadays the Irish as a whole in Ireland fulfil only some of the Brit-Am Israelite Identification Criteria.
The only solution we can propose is that IRELAND is a mixture and it may (or may not) be that most of they who were of Israelite origin left the country to the USA and elsewhere. A similar phenomenon has been remarked by us as occuring in Germany and other parts of Europe as explained in our work "Joseph. -The Israelite Destiny of America".
On the other hand for a country with almost no Jews the concept of Jewry and Jewish concerns appears to play a not insignificant part in the national consciousness.

5. Irin and Tarshish
IRIN is an old name for Ireland. It could be derived from Eran the grandsonson of Manasseh:
[Numbers 26:35] THESE ARE THE SONS OF EPHRAIM AFTER THEIR FAMILIES: OF SHUTHELAH, THE FAMILY OF THE SHUTHALHITES: OF BECHER, THE FAMILY OF THE BACHRITES: OF TAHAN, THE FAMILY OF THE TAHANITES.
[Numbers 26:36] AND THESE ARE THE SONS OF SHUTHELAH: OF ERAN, THE FAMILY OF THE ERANITES.
IRIN in Biblical Hebrew can be spelled as IRIN or as IRiN (with the vowel "i" implied) with the letter option being the most probable. The first option however also acceptable, it is the one that would be used in Modern Hebrew, and it is less ambiguous. We applied IRIN to the Codes and came up with two results in the whole Bible one at a straight sequence of two letters and another at a reversed (going backwards) sequence of 2.
The straight sequence of two letters is illustrated above.
This is the source:
[1-Kings 10:22] FOR THE KING HAD AT SEA A NAVY OF THARSHISH WITH THE NAVY OF HIRAM: ONCE IN THREE YEARS CAME THE NAVY OF THARSHISH, BRINGING [Hebrew: ANI TaRShISh NoSAyT] GOLD, AND SILVER, IVORY, AND APES, AND PEACOCKS.
This connects IRIN (Ireland) with Tarshish. This corresponds with Brit-Am findings and with findings of archaeology in general. Tarshish was based on Tartessus by Gibraltar in Spain but it exploited the mineral resources of Britain and Ireland including gold and silver. The ships of Solomon would leave from the Dead Sea Port of Ezion Gever sail around Africa, visit the British Isles, Tartessos in Spain and return to Israel via the Mediterranean. Phoenician remains have been found in Ireland and Britain. The skeleton of a Barbary Ape (from North Africa) along with Phoenician remains has been found in Northern Ireland. See what we mention on this subject in our notes concerning Tarshish and the Phoenicians. Tarshish and its connection to the Atlantic Ocean and the future location of the Lost Ten Tribes is also one of the numerous Brit-Am Biblical Proofs.
The second appearance of IRIN was at a reversed sequence of 2 and occurred in the sentence where Joseph describes his brother as Herdsmen of flocks (Genesis 46:32).
Dublin is the capital of Eire which is the official Irish name for Ireland. As is the way of capital cities it is sometimes taken to represent Ireland.
The first example from the right hand side at a space of 31 hows Dublin joined to Ishmael the father of the Arabs. This could indicate some non-Israelite stock amongst the Irish or it could mean something else, such as a future alliance.
The second example at a space of 64 has Dublin linked with the House of Jesse (which was the House of David) from Bethlehem.
The third example (also at a space of 64) has Dublin adjoined to the Tribe of Naphtali. We identify Naphtali with the
Norwegians though Naphtalites were intermixed with the Danes (of Dan) from Denmark. Dan was the brother of Naphtali: Naphtali and Dan being the two sons of Bilhah maidservant of Rachel). The Danes and Norwegians comprised the Vikings who at one stage conquered much of Ireland. They either founded the city of Dublin or else greatly expanded on an already existing settlement.
Concerning Naphtali it was foretold,
Genesis 49:21] NAPHTALI IS A HIND LET LOOSE: HE GIVETH GOODLY WORDS.
"GOODLY WORDS": The time of Naphtali was to be known for its eloquence and the Irish are the most eloquent people in the world.
Donegal is in the northwest of Ireland. About 20% of the population of Donegal are classified by DNA as R1b1c7 and are assumed to be descended from, or closely related to, the line of Nial of the Nine Hostages who provided the early kings of Ireland and Scotland.
The dialect of Donegal is similar to that of Highland Scotland whereas DNA studies link the line of Nial more to the Lowlands of southwest Scotland. Much of the Classical Literature of Ireland originated from Donegal and its neighborhood. Donegal is considered somewhat different from the rest of Ireland and deserves consideration of its own.
The first (from left to right) (interval of 12) links Donegal with Assyria and Gozan and the passage in 2-Kings 17 describing the exile of the Northern Ten Tribes of Israel.
A similar results was noticed concerning Belfast of Ulster.
The second Donegal adjoins the heathen King of Geshur and Moab.
In the second row from the left Donegal is linked at the top with the Tribe of DAN and at the bottom with Babylon.
The next one (interval of 19) links Donegal twice (top and bottom) with the Tribe of GAD and also with the Clan of Calcol from Judah. There are writers that claim that descendants of Judah such as Hermon, Calcol and Dara (1 Chronicles 2:6) [or rather descendants of them] settled in this part of Ireland.
Professor Totten gave the following genealogy,Judah, begat Zarah; Zarah, begat Ethan; Ethan, begat Mahol; Mahol, begat Calcol; Calcol, begat Gadhol;[in Ireland] etc all the way up to Heremon who married Tea Tephi who is identified as a daughter of King Zedekiah of Judah.
The reliability of this and similar accounts may be questionable but not beyond what sometimes appears to be implied in early Irish manuscripts. The option needs to be left open and the sources taken into consideration. More results for Donegal are given below.
From the left hand side, first example links Donegal twice with DAN and also with islands.
Second example connects Donegal with Gilead or with the inhabitants of Jabesh Gilead east of the Jordan who were part of Manasseh but also intermarried with Benjamin.
Third example connects Donegal to the Jews of Judah.
One may claim that all these connections are coincidence but they do form a pattern and we were looking for anything that made sense and this is what we found not because we were looking for it but because it was there.
Donegal showed a recurring connection to DAN as well as associations with Gad, Manasseh, and Judah, together with with some non-Israelite peoples or cultures.
The Bible Codes confirm Brit-Am Beliefs.
They are in their own right strong proofs of the Brit-Am truths.
