    The only tree in Ireland that fits with the tale of Maeldun I posted above ie "These trees were somewhat like hazels...and not very different in appearance from apples, except that they had a rough, berry-like rind" is the strawberry tree Arbutus unedo . Lets remember the large apples you are used of today are much larger then the wild crab apples the ancients would have eaten.

    Arbutus unedo's leaves have been employed in traditional and folk medicine in the form of a decoction having the following properties: astringent, diuretic, urinary anti-septic, antiseptic, intoxicant, rheumatism, tonic, and more recently, in the therapy of hypertension and diabetes
    I suspect an intoxicating honey mead was made with the fruits and other parts of the tree.

    Just because you have a degree does not mean you know anything. It does not mean you do not know something, but this kind of bow your head and worship something a phd muppet says is - to me - ridiculous. I have for years now said that I want to get a phd myself, ONLY... only so I can write a book called "phd is bullshit". Because, ironically, no one will believe me unless I have one myself.

    Cruise the streets on a hustle
    Show 'em what's up, flex some muscle
    Whacked out mind on a roll, leavin' behind a violent toll
