St. Patrick's Serpents were Nummo
St. Patrick Driving the Serpents Out of Irelandhttp://www.patheos.com/ blogs/wildhunt/2012/03/saint-patrick- druids-snakes-and-popular-myths.html
Prior to Catholicism, the Irish practised a form of Celtic paganism, which my research associates with the Dogon religion. The serpent and fish like alien Nummo, who were most often referred to as "the Serpent" by the Dogon elder Ogotemmêli, appear all over Celtic Ireland.Shannon Dorey, The Nummo 2019 version, p. 76
Since post-glacial Ireland never had snakes,http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Patrick the story about St. Patrick chasing the snakes out of Ireland was likely in reference to the alien Nummo.
According to Ogotemmêli's description of them, the Nummo were amphibians that were often compared to serpents, lizards, chameleons, and occasionally even sloths (because of their being slow moving and having a shapeless neck). They were also described as fish capable of walking on land; while they were on land, the Nummo stood upright on their tails, which reinforced thier association with a serpent.Dorey, The Master (Mistress) of Speech p. 13
The Nummos' skin was primarily green, but, like the chameleon, it sometimes changed colours. It was said to at times have all the colours of the rainbow.Dorey, The Master (Mistress) of Speech p. 13
Most passages tell us that the Nummo liked to live either high in the mountains, in water, or deep in underground tunnels and caves. They preferred to venture out at night and there was some suggestion that the hot African sunlight was harmful to them.Dorey, The Master (Mistress) of Speech p. 24
Ogotemmêli reported that the Nummo had to keep moist in order to stay alive. Lannea acida oil, which came from a tree identified as the Nummos' tree, was used by the Nummo to keep their skin from drying out.Dorey, The Master (Mistress) of Speech p. 22
In the area where the Nummo lived underground, the land above ground looked like a giant anthill. I believe that the round barrow fortresses of the Irish Sidhe were likewise remnants of the Nummo dwellings underground.Shannon Dorey, Day of the Fish 2017 version, p. 216
According to Robert Graves, "Caer Sidi or Caer Sidin means `Revolving Castle' in Welsh and though revolving islands are common in Welsh and Irish legend, the word "sidi" is apparently a translation of the Goidelic word Sidhe, a round barrow fortress belonging to the Aes Sidhe (Sidhe for short) the prime magicians of Ireland.
There are several "Fortresses of the 'Sidhe' in Ireland, the most remarkable ones being Brugh-na-Boyne (now called `New Grange'), Knowth and Dowth, on the northern banks of the River Boyne. ...the Sidhe were such skilful poets that even the Druids were obliged to go to them for the spells that they needed." I believe that because the Nummo had advanced knowledge of science that they were associated with magicians.Shannon Dorey, Day of the Fish 2017 version, p. 216
When the Nummos' travelling device moved, it created wind, and according to the Irish poet William Butler Yeats, Sidhe is Gaelic for wind, and many myths about the Sidhe associate them with wind. Yeats said that they journeyed in the whirling wind and in his day in Ireland (1865-1939), he witnessed old people from the country blessing themselves when they saw the leaves whirling on the road because they believed the Sidhe to be passing by.Shannon Dorey, Day of the Fish, p. 216
