'Irish Wisdom Preserved in Bible and Pyramids'  -  By Conor Mac Dari  published in 1923

Very interesting and compelling propositions about Irelands past build on the etymological comparisons between  Gaelic, Hebrew and Sanskrit and their phonetic similarities also.

Its in reprint from Kessinger Publishings
