The Lost Civilization Of Atlantis Is Ireland

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


By Francis J. Ward & Francis P. Ward


“The Western Ocean . . . . where the gods are born. . . ”  — Homer, The Iliad[1]


“All the gods are sprung from the brains of the bards.” – Boileau (1636-1711)[2]

A 2004 book investigating the myth of Atlantis said that the mythical island was almost certainly the island of Ireland.  The claim was made by Swedish geologist Dr. Ulf Erlingsson[3]in his book Atlantis from a Geographer’s Perspective: Mapping the Fairy Land.    According to Erlingsson:[4]

This book is an attempt at permanently settling the question of whether the geographic description of Atlantis was based on a real place. The answer is a resounding yes. Beyond reasonable doubt, Plato based the geographic description on Ireland.

Erlingsson bases his evidence on Plato’s description of Atlantis, which matches Ireland almost perfectly.  Statistically, the scientist claims, the probability is over 99.98% that Plato was describing Ireland.  Erlingsson writes:

Just like Atlantis, Ireland is 3,000 stadia long, 2,000 stadia wide, and widest over the middle. They both feature a central plain that is open to the sea, but fringed by mountains. No other island on earth even comes close to this description.

The Geodetic Measure of Ireland

According to Plato’s dialogue Critias, the island of Atlantis was “of an oblong shape, extending in one direction three thousand stadia, but across the centre inland it was two thousand stadia.”[5]As you can see on the right[6], Ireland is approximately an oblong shape, with width of 2,038 stadia and a height of 2,932 stadia.  Plato states that Atlantis had mountains on three sides of the island, but the fourth side opened to a wide and fertile plain, which  describes Irelandwith uncanny accuracy.  Plato further states the capital of Atlantis was located eis to kheniron tou nesou—“in the middle of the island”—a description that matches the ancient Irish capital of Tara perfectly.

Plato was the first person to claim that the builders of the Egyptian pyramids came from Atlantis.

Ptolemy’s 140 AD Map of Ireland


Figure 1 – Ptolemy’s 140 AD map of “Hibernia” may document that Ireland was once the home of the supreme king—“exactly what Irish mythology claims that Tara was.”

“The land belongs to the Storm God alone!”

According to Dr. Erlingsson, Ptolemy’s 140 AD map of “Hibernia” may document that Ireland was once the home of the supreme king—“exactly what Irish mythology claims that Tara was.” To wit:[7]

We can get inspiration from another continent, from the Hittite Kingdom in Anatolia about 3,500 years ago. I quote from a clay tablet with cuneiform script in the Hittite language:

“The land belongs to the Storm God alone!

Heaven, earth and the people belong to the Storm God alone!

He has made Labarna, the king, his administrator and given all of Hatti to him.

Labarna will continue to administer all of this land with his hand.

May the Storm God destroy whomever may approach Labarna’s person,

[unreadable], and the borders.”  — IBoT 1.30:2-8

It has been concluded that Labarna was the first king, but judging from the quote, Labarna could alternatively be the supreme king. Compare with the city on Hibernia, “Laberus”. An unstressed syllable “-er- in Indo-European, was changed to -ar- in Germanic languages. Perhaps the same applies for the Hittite language, especially considering that those two language branches have been said to be close to one another. If so, then the town Laberus literally might be “Laberna’s town”, meaning the town of the supreme king–exactly what Irish mythology claims that Tara was.

According to Plato’s Critias, in ancient times, the Earth was divided among the gods of Atlantis by allotment, and the gods guided the rest of mankind not by force, but “by the rudder of persuasion”:[8]

In the days of old, the gods had the whole earth distributed among them by allotment. There was no quarrelling; [the gods guided the human race] . . .as shepherds tend their flocks, excepting only that they did not use blows or bodily force, as shepherds do, but governed us like pilots from the stern of the vessel . . . holding our souls by the rudder of persuasion . . . thus did they guide all mortal creatures.

Plato goes on to describe the origins of Atlantis. Plato said that Atlantis was allotted to Poseidon, who fell in love with a mortal girl named Clito.  She bore him a number of children, the first of whom was Atlas, who inherited the kingdom and passed it onto his firstborn for many generations. Critias then goes into a great deal of detail in describing the island of Atlantis and  then reiterates the remarkable virtue of the Atlanteans, saying:[9]

For many generations, as long as the divine nature lasted in them, they were obedient to the laws, and well-affectioned towards the god, whose seed they were; for they possessed true and in every way great spirits, uniting gentleness with wisdom in the various chances of life, and in their intercourse with one another. They despised everything but virtue, caring little for their present state of life, and thinking lightly of the possession of gold and other property, which seemed only a burden to them; neither were they intoxicated by luxury; nor did wealth deprive them of their self-control; but they were sober, and saw clearly that all these goods are increased by virtue and friendship with one another, whereas by too great regard and respect for them, they are lost and friendship with them.

However, according to Plato, the Atlanteans became corrupt:[10]

“…when the divine portion began to fade away, and became diluted too often and too much with the mortal admixture, and the human nature got the upper hand, they then, being unable to bear their fortune, behaved unseemly, and to him who had an eye to see grew visibly debased, for they were losing the fairest of their precious gifts; but to those who had no eye to see the true happiness, they appeared glorious and blessed at the very time when they were full of avarice and unrighteous power.

Plato’s Critias then says that Zeus–the god of gods–was determined to punish the Atlanteans because of their corruption:

Zeus, the god of gods, who rules according to law, and is able to see into such things, perceiving that an honourable race was in a woeful plight, and wanting to inflict punishment on them, that they might be chastened and improve, collected all the gods into their most holy habitation, which, being placed in the centre of the world, beholds all created things. And when he had called them together, he spake as follows . . . .

Zeus began to speak, but unfortunately, the rest of the Dialogue of Critias has been lost.

Laberus – the Roaring Red Lion

The Greek cartographer Ptolemy’s map of Ireland is the oldest known to exist.  Charted around 140 AD, Ptolemy places the town of “Laberus” where Tara should be.  Who or what is “Laberus”, and what is Laberus doing where Tara is supposed to be?

In the Bible, the lion is the symbol of the tribe of Judah and the Maccabee Brothers.  “Behold the lion that is of the tribe of Judah, the root of David, hath conquered to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.” — Revelation 5:5.  The Old Testament uses six different words for “lion” and one of them is Labi, from a root meaning “to roar,” a grown lion or lioness (Gen. 49:9; Num. 23:24; 24:9; Ezek. 19:2; Nah. 2:11).[11] Accordingly, the word “Laberus” may be parsed as follows:

  • Labi = roaring lion
  • Rus = red
  • Labi + rus = Laberus = the Roaring Red Lion

Figure 1 – the national flag of Scotland is the oldest in the world, and it features a roaring red lion–just like the roaring red lion of Laberus on Ptolemy’s 140 AD map.


The Great Sphinx of Egypt (which is half-man and half-lion) still carries traces of the red paint which used to cover the entire Sphinx back in ancient times.   According to Moses, the Lost Tribe of Dan is a “lion’s whelp”—a roaring red lion.

In the Old Testament, God is described as a roaring lion:  “They shall walk after the LORD: he shall roar like a lion: when he shall roar, then the children shall tremble from the west.” – Hosea 11:10

Plutarch’s “Islands of the Blessed”

According to the Greek historian Plutarch (c. 46 – 120 AD), the Islands of the Blessed or the Fortunate Islands were “Atlantic islands, two in number, divided from one another only by a narrow channel, and distant from the coast of Africa ten thousand furlongs. These are called the Islandsof the Blest . . . .”[12]

10,000 furlongs translates to 1,250 miles.  The flying distance from Gibraltar to Dublin is 1,188 miles, but of course, if you were sailing from Gibraltar to the British Islands, Plutarch’s measurement is virtually flawless.

Twenty-four (24) Ancient Narrative Sources that Describe Atlantis

Cedric Leonard of the University of Oklahoma has compiled a list of 24 ancient narrative sources that describe Atlantis (below).[13]  Although language is variable and changing over time, the homophonic similarity of the various names for Atlantis are noteworthy.  For example, according to Philo, the island mentioned by Plato was called Atalantes. Herodotus called the Atlanteans the Atlantes, and Diodorus called the Atlanteans the Atlantoi.  Similarly, the Aletae of Sanchuniathon were called theAuritae by Manetho. The Berbers of North Africa had a place-names called Attala, while the Sanskrit writings speak of an island in the Atlantic called Atala.  Additionally, in the Americas, place-names for Atlantis include Atlan (Isthmus of Panama), Aztlan (Toltec mythology), Atitlan (Guatemala), andAztalan (Wisconsin).

The Kings of Atlantis Were the gods of the Ancient World

  • “According to the traditions of the Phœnicians, the Gardens of the Hesperides were in the remote west.” Atlas—the king of Atlantis–lived in these gardens.[14]
  • “The Elysian Fields (the happy islands) were commonly placed in the remote west. They were ruled over by Chronos.”[15]   “The Elysian Fields was the final resting place for the souls of heroes and virtuous men. The ancients often distinguished between two such realms–the islands of the Blessed and the Lethean fields of Haides.  The first of these, also known as the White Island or the Islands of the Blessed, was an afterlife realm reserved for the heroes of myth. It was an island paradise located in the far western streams of the river Okeanos, and ruled over by the Titan-King Kronos or Rhadamanthys, a son of Zeus.”[16]
  • Tartarus, the region of Hades, the gloomy home of the dead, was also located “under the mountains of an island in the midst of the ocean in the remote west.”[17]
  • Atlas was described in Greek mythology as “an enormous giant, who stood upon the western confines of the earth, and supported the heavens on his shoulders, in a region of the west where the sun continued to shine after he had set upon Greece.”[18]
  • Greek tradition located the island in which Olympus was situated “in the far west,” “in the ocean beyond Africa,” “on the western boundary of the known world,” “where the sun shone when it had ceased to shine on Greece,” and where the mighty Atlas “held up the heavens.”[19]
  • Plato tells us that the land where Poseidon and Atlas ruled was Atlantis.[20]
  • “The terms “Atala” and “White Island” are used also by the Bhavishya Purana (4thcent. BC). Here it is stated that Samba, having built a temple dedicated to Surya (the Sun), made a journey to Saka Dwipa [‘White Island’], located ‘beyond the salt water’ looking for the Magas (magicians), worshippers of the Sun. He is directed in his journey by Surya himself (i.e., journeys west following the Sun), riding upon Garuda (the flying vehicle of Krishna and Vishnu) he lands at last among the Magas.”[21]

Albion—the “White Island”–is the ancient name for Britain, and it is thought to derive from the white cliffs of Dover. It is also the basis of the Scottish Gaelic name for Scotland, Alba.

Hindu religious texts speak of a sacred “White Island” that was located in the Western Ocean.

“The White Island” concept associated with Atlantis is also found in Greek mythology, Aztec Mexico, North Africa, and India.

  • “The Mahabharata (circa. 600 B.C.) also refers to ‘Atala, the White Island’, which is described as an ‘island of great splendour.’ It continues: ‘The men that inhabit that island have complexions as white as the rays of the Moon and they are devoted to Narayana . . . Indeed, the denizens of White Island believe and worship only one God.’ (Santi Parva, Section CCCXXXVII)”[22]
  • “Sekhet-Aaru was the Egyptians’ realm of the dead, but also their ancestral homeland on an island in the Distant West, from which their forefathers arrived at the Nile Delta in the Zep Tepi, or ‘First Time,’ at the start of dynastic civilization.”[23]
  • In ancient Egyptian cosmology, Amenti was the western abode of the dead where the souls of the deceased are judged by Osiris and punished or rewarded for their deeds.[24]
  • “On the other side of the world, the Aztecs believed their ancestors came from an island kingdom in the Distant East, called Aztlan. Both Sekhet-Aaru and Aztlan mean ‘Field of Reeds.’ To the Egyptians and the Aztecs alike, reeds, employed as writing utensils, were symbolic of literacy and wisdom, implying that Sekhet-Aaru/Aztlan was a place of extraordinary learning.”[25]
  • “Albion is the ancient name for Britain, “The White Island,” derived from the twin brother of Atlas. Albion was said to have introduced the arts of shipbuilding and astrology, the leading material features of Atlantis. “The White Island” concept associated with Atlantis is also found in Aztec Mexico, North Africa, and India. The spiritual arts Albion brought to Britain were believed to have formed the basis for Druidism.”[26]
  • Tir-nan-Og is the “Celtic ‘Island of Youth,’ a tradition adopted from pre-Celtic Irish inhabitants and associated with Atlantean invaders of Ireland, the Tuatha da Danann. Its philological correspondence to Homer’s Ogygia, the biblical Og, the Greeks’ Ogygian Flood, and so on, are all transparent references to Atlantis—an identification supported by Tir-nan-Og’s eventual demise beneath the sea.  The widespread association of ‘og’ with an Atlantis-like catastrophe defines its impact on various peoples.”[27]  Like Ireland, mythical Tir-nan-Og is supposedly an island paradise in the far west.
  • “The Welsh and ancient English pointed to the western ocean for their Earthly paradise, which they called Avalon.”[28]
  • “The Babylonians placed their paradise in the western ocean and referred to it as Aralu.”[29]
  • “The Celtic tribes of Spain and also the Basques preserve traditions of their homeland in the western ocean; and the original Gauls of France, especially those in the western sections, had the tradition that their ancestors came from the middle of the western ocean as the result of a catastrophe which destroyed their homeland.”[30]

Sanskrit and Gaelic Shan Scrien

In the 19th century, German anthropologist Max Muller’s theory of the “Aryan Master Race” was based upon the observation that all the world’s languages seemed to be descended from Indian Sanskrit, and today, David Frawley, Graham Hancock, Dr. Robert Schoch, and many other prominent investigators are searching for the ancient origins of civilization in the East, on the theory that is where the Sanskrit language comes from.  However:   “The language which the [Irish Warrior Monks who “saved civilization”] spoke in Ionawas, however, Sanskrit, the name of the Gaelic language in Gaelic being Shan Scrien.” — Arthur Edward Waite, New Encyclopedia of Freemasonry Part 1, p. 161.

Additionally, according to Charles MacKay’s 1877 book, The Gaelic Etymology of the Languages of Western Europe, all the languages of western Europe are based upon the Gaelic language, and according to Dr. Murray, late professor of Oriental languages at the Universityof Edinburgh:  “Without a considerable knowledge of Gaelic, no person can make any proficiency whatever in philology.”

The Island“Homeland of the Primeval Ones” & Ward Hill

According to the Egyptian Book of the Dead, Thoth (i.e., the Egyptian equivalent of Hermes and Mercury) said that an illustrious civilization was destroyed by a Great Deluge:  “I am going to blot out everything which I have made. The Earth shall enter into the waters of the abyss of Nun [the sea-god] by means of a raging flood, and will become even as it was in the primeval time.”[31]


Figure 2 – The outer walls of the Egyptian temple at Edfu speak of the Zep Tepi–the gods of the “First Time”–who came from “the Homeland of the Primeval Ones,” an island that sank during a catastrophic flood.

Thoth’s description of the catastrophe is reiterated in the Edfu Texts, which indicated that the “Homeland of the Primeval Ones” was a great island that sank with most of its inhabitants during the Zep Tepi, or the “First Time.”  We are told that the creation of the world began on this island, but the “mansions of the gods” were suddenly overwhelmed by a great flood.  Led by Thoth, only the “Seven Sages” or “Builder gods” escaped the cataclysm and settled in the Nile Delta, where they created Egyptian civilization.

So where was this island “Homeland of the Primeval Ones”?  In the Boyne Valley of Atlantis-Ireland, Ward Hill is also known as “Tlachta”, which means “the place of the First Time.”  In the Nahuatl language:[32]

  • “tla” = “the place of”[33]
  • “achto” = “first time”
  • Hence, Tla + achto = Tlachta = “the place of the First Time” = Ward Hill

Atlantis Was a Global, Maritime Empire Based in Ireland

According to Conor MacDari in his book, Irish Wisdom Preserved in the Bible and the Pyramids:[34]

There is no mistaking the monuments left by the Irish who were once the rulers and masters of the whole earth. Their rule embraced all countries – it was world-wide. Ireland was the first mistress of the seas; it was the first and only world-wide empire which has ever been known. For it was spiritual. It was greater in extent than Persian, Greek, Roman, or Mogul ever attained to. The remains of their works, wherever they are found, bear an unmistakable similarity in shape and character. They are huge, immense, and conceived and carried out on a plan so extensive that it awes the mind of the man of today. These remains extend from Ireland along the Atlantic coast of Europe to Africa, along the Mediterranean Sea to Egypt, India, China, Java, Tahiti, and the Caroline Islands in the South Pacific Ocean. On the American Continent we find the round tower near Newport, R. I., which bespeaks its Irish origin, and the great pyramidal mounds of the Ohio and Mississippi valleys; also the ruined temples of Yucatan and Mexico, and similar remains in South America are all evidences of their handiwork. All owe their origin to the same source, and they establish beyond any doubt that the Irish were the first real discoverers of America and that they established civilization on this western continent. It was tradition founded on that fact which gave hope and encouragement to later adventurers.

The family of the pharaohs who built the pyramids at Giza includes Jehovah, King David and Jesus Christ, and for those who are interested, we have compiled a comprehensive body of evidence for the senior branch of this family—the Wards/Arads/Mac an Bhairds–in the Introduction to our book–The Truth Against the World—which can be read online at   Among other ancient mysteries, we have solved the hidden message of the Great Pyramid, and the riddles of King Arthur and the Knights of the Roundtable, the Fisher King, Pahana—the Lost White Brother, the Kalki incarnation of Vishnu, and the fulfillments of the Star, Branch, and World Ruler Prophecies.

Additionally, archaeological evidence indicates that Lord God Jehovah was a real person down here on Earth, who lived in the eastern Negev Desert at the Israelite settlement of Tel Arad[35]—which was the Citadel and Tabernacle of King David, the true and historical Mt. Zion, and the only ever-discovered House of Yahweh in the land of Israel, which in turn carries the name of the senior branch of Druids—i.e., Ward-Arad-Mac an Bhaird.

In our articles, we expose the reasons why this knowledge has been hidden for over 5,000 years, and we outline the keys for overthrowing the criminal tyranny of the New World Order.
