The Iverni must have been a nation of considerable importance, as they play a prominent part in the historical period, where they are known as the Ernai or Eraind of Munster.
Eogan had subdued the Ernai and the Corco Laigde (descendants of Lugaid son of Ith) in Munster, and even the supreme king was obliged to share the island with him.
Rhys adopts the view that the race of Eber Find was not Milesian but a branch of the Ernai, and this theory has much in its favour.
