I thought it was quite clear - the Berbers paint themselves blue - they are blue people or na Daoine Goirme ion truth. At least their favoured blue pigments with which they dyed their clothes offset onto their skin in the heat of the desert making them look like blue-skinned people - the Berber Blue pigment fends off the evil spirits, etc. The black people that the Atlanteans from Connemara and Mayo peninsulas met were generally suffering from the blues - hence Daoine Goirme - black people were definitely blue.
Bob Quin's documentary pointed out stuff like the similarity between the designs on the Book of Kells and thsoe swirls embossing ancient books (korans?) in Morocco, Tunesia, etc., And Sean Nos singing in Connemara and was compared with quarter-toned trad singiers in Morocco and Coptics in Egypt.
Of course the fact that there are zero native fair-haired Celtic 'Aryan' race people on the Aran Islands but instead lots and lots of dark swarthy-skinned individuals suggest that they ar much more closely interbred with the tribes of blue-painted North African peoples with whom they traded supports his thesis that we are intimately linked with the Doaine Goirme of North Africa - Tauregs and Berbers in particular?
We are not no so much fair-haired Celts as dark swarthy North Africans - particulary in the West of Ireland where the th is not well-pronounced.
