It's certainly been suggested that there was migration to Ireland from the Iberian peninsula.

I'm working my way through a rather clumsily written book about this at the moment - The Origins of the British, Stephen Oppenheimer. See here for more information. How well accepted this is by mainstream archaeologists or linguists, I don't know.
