Nebuccadnezzar, King of Babylon conquered Israel and then a few years later, about 587 B.C. he conquered Judah. Zedekiah was King of Judah at the time. Nebuccadnezzar's army destroyed and burned Jerusalem and took most of the people captive. He left only a few to work the land. He killed Zedekiah's sons in front of him and then put out his eyes and carried him off to Babylon where he later died.
The Prophet Jeremiah took Zedekiah's daughters, who were his granddaughters, and after much struggle ended up in Egypt. They took the 'Stone of Scone' which was Jacob's pillow when he had his dreams. They along with Jeremiah's scribe, Baruch, set sail for Spain where one of the daughters married into Spanish Royalty. They went on from there and landed at Howth and travelled to Tara. There Tamar was married to Eochaidh - the King of Ireland.
Eochaidh was descended from Zereh 'of the Red Hand', whose father was Judah. Tamar Tephi was from David's line thru Perez, the twin brother of Zerah, whose father was Judah. Their marriage brought the 'Red-Hand' and the 'Star of David' under a single Royal Crown uniting the two royal lines from Judah.
The 'Stone of Scone' resides with royalty and was used for Royal Coronations from then to now.
Tamar and Eochaidh had four children.
