Irish Mariners Arrive

Irish mariners were visiting the Hebrides, Orkneys, by 500 AD. I believe that they had reached Iceland, Labrador, and Newfoundland before 900AD. Icelanders agree that they arrived in Iceland about 900AD and found Irish there when they arrived.
There are those who say that by about 1000 AD Irish had arrived in what we now call W. Virginia and Maryland.

Then again I have heard an Irishman say that the Irish were the first to get to heaven and another from that island to say that they were among the first to go to hell.
