Dub-Finngaill is translated as “dark and fair foreigners” or “black and white foreigners.” Similar terms are found in Welsh chronicles, probably derived from Gaelic usage. The first known use of these terms in the chronicles is from 851 when it is noted that “The Dubhghoill arrived in Ath Cliath (Dublin), and made a great slaughter of the Finnghoill.” The word Gaill (plural of Gall) etymologically originates from “Gauls,” who in pre-Viking Gaelic history were the archetypal “foreigners.”
