Yale University’s Skull and Bones..
County Kerry (Contae Chiarraí) is a county in Ireland.. It is located in the South-West Region and is also part of the province of Munster..Kerry (Irish: Ciarraí or more anciently Ciarraighe) means the "people of Ciar" which was the name of the pre-Gaelic tribe who lived in part of the present county..The legendary founder of the tribe was Ciar, son of Fergus mac Róich..In Old Irish "Ciar" meant black or dark brown, and the word continues in use in modern Irish as an adjective describing a dark complexion..Thomas leads Alex to a nightclub where they are taken to the underground base of operations of a masked man called Chirac, the 'Black Pope..

Feathers of Cowardice ..

Kerry is the 5th largest of the 32 counties of Ireland by area and the 13th largest by population..The diocesan see is Killarney, which is one of Ireland's most famous tourist destinations..Kerry faces the Atlantic Ocean and, typically for an Eastern-Atlantic coastal region, features many peninsulas and inlets, principally the Dingle Peninsula, the Iveragh Peninsula, and the Beara Peninsula.. The county is bounded on the west by the Atlantic Ocean and on the north by the River Shannon.. Kerry is one of the most mountainous regions of Ireland and contains 2 of its 3 highest mountains, Carrauntoohil, part of the Macgillycuddy's Reeks range, and Mount Brandon, part of the Slieve Mish range..(Cnoc Bréanainn, meaning "Brendan's hill")..The tale of Brendan's voyage may be a Christianization of the earlier Voyage of Bran..On 27 August 1329, by Letters Patent, Maurice FitzGerald, 1st Earl of Desmond was confirmed in the feudal seniority of the entire county palatine of Kerry, to him and his heirs male, to hold of the Crown by the service of one knight's fee. In the 15th century, the majority of the area now known as County Kerry was still part of the County Desmond, the west Munster seat of the Earl of Desmond, a branch of the Hiberno-Norman FitzGerald dynasty, known as the Geraldines.In 1580, during the Second Desmond Rebellion, one of the most infamous massacres of the Sixteenth century, the Siege of Smerwick, took place at Dún an Óir near Ard na Caithne (Smerwick) at the tip of the Dingle Peninsula.. The 600-strong Italian, Spanish and Irish papal invasion force of James Fitzmaurice Fitzgerald was besieged by the English forces and massacred..In 1588 when the fleet of the Spanish Armada in Ireland were returning to Spain during stormy weather, many of its ships sought shelter at the Blasket Islands and some were wrecked..Lulu Dingle has also appeared in the show, but it is not clear where she fits into the family tree... Christ?. Stop me if you heard this one: Christ walks into a HotEl..Ow! He hands the innkeeper 3 nails, and he asks...Can you put me up for the night?..
