Ireland become more than agricultural community. The Fir Bolgs were warrior-aristocrats who introduced the spear head and their king was the first to show justice in the land (Rosenberg, p. 372). The fifth age of the world, the divine race of Tuatha De Danann (people of the Mother Goddess Danu) invaded Ireland On May first. When they arrived, a dense cloud concealed their arrival from the Fir Bolg. They were decided to stay because they burned all their boats and were prepared for whatever shall come. The fog came from the religious leaders, the druids and these clouds unleased a mass of blood and fire upon the race Fir Bolg and they went into hiding for 3 days. In return, the Fir Bolg cleared the air with their own magic spells. The two races declared a truce for 105 days, so they could better prepare for battle (Rosenberg, 372).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
