The first attempted invasion of the British Isles failed because the Ancient Brits had boats much larger than the Roman Galleys. (Barry Fell refs the
Roman chronicles in Bronze Age America or America B.C.). The retreat to Wales, Scotland, Ireland by the Celts on the 2nd successful invasion would
suggest that the ppl you talk of were part of this culture. As such the Irish would have had the boats and tech to sail far afield, to the Americas if
Fell's accounts are to be believed..
There are also Greek accounts of Ancient Britons trading in the Mediteranean, as far as Egypt before the first pyramid was ever built. The culture
your mother tours was part of a once immense empire, consigned to a crappy roman accounts that do not do it justice.
