In college, I came into contact with a few through the course I was doing. Could there have been a Jewish equivalent of a crock of gold up for grabs if I'd nabbed one of them?
So are the majority of Irish Jews of German or Central European descent who were escaping Hitler's persecution?
|The earliest reference to the Jews in Ireland was in the year 1079. The Annals of Inisfallen record "Five Jews came from over sea with gifts to Toirdelbach [Toirdelbach Ua Briain, the king of Munster], and they were sent back again over sea". They were probably merchants from Normandy.|
