Subject: RE: Folklore: Black Irish: Etymological Consensus?
Howard definitely ment the Cimmerians around the Black Sea area, related to the Scythians, Sarmatians, all the Iranian, rather than Turkic, nomads.
Frankly, there's as much etymological relation between Cimmeria and Cymry as Russia and Prussia.
