Really enjoyed that, really concise and informative.  However I do think there are areas of the ancient systems that we seem to ignore.  For instance, we know there was slavery (though I am unsure as to what form it took), a slave trade and markets in Ireland on an international scale, there is a strong suspicion of ritual killings and there were frequent raids and war parties against both other tribal Irish entities and against foreign seaboards.  I think it's important to explore the faults in our ancient society as well as its positives if only to better understand our history.

P.S I'm not attacking anybody here before the offended brigade kick in, I agree with most of the presenters views, my comment is a pure invitation to a historical discussion and nothing more!
