Welcome back to the Candlelit Tales Podcast, and back to this Series.

In this series, we’re taking a look at some of the most iconic locations in Ireland, and the stories and myths attached to them.

In this episode, we take a closer look at the Sliabh Mis mountains in Kerry. There is a burial site in the hills, where the daughter of a Phero of Egypt is buried. The story goes, that a group of exiles from Egypt came across Europe and found their way to the South of Ireland. Linked in with the Milleasion myth, the group of people who fought the Tuath de Dannan and defeated them to rule Ireland. Scotia was their beloved princess and she died in the battle. You may still find traces in Glenn Scotia, very near present-day Tralee, where the Egyptian princess is believed to be buried.

The same people are believed to have travelled from Ireland to Hill Hilled Alba, and the country got the name Scotland from princess Scotia… apparently.
