No, just no.
Genetically the Irish (and the rest of Britian) is mostly still Paleolithic settlers. Linguistically Irish in all its forms is an Indo-European language, Pheonician (and its daughter Corrinth) are Semetic. Scythians were a nomadic Indo-European speaking folk, from Irian (Persia, as Indo-Eurpean). One should not rely on pagan myths that were recorded by Monks as being unbiased. These same monks made Scotia, dauighter of a Pharo, the Lia Fáil (one of the four treasures of the Tuatha) was her fathers pillow.
