I believe that Ollam Fodlah (which supposedly means "prophet") refers to
Jeremiah. Ollam Fodlah supposedly showed up in Ireland with his faithful
scribe Barak and the daughter of an "eastern king".
The Tanakh relates that Jeremiah, who was father-in-law to King Zedekiah,
took the king's daughters, which were his own granddaughters, and fled to
Egypt just prior to the sack of Jerusalem by the Babylonians in 586 BCE.
Accompanying him was his scribe, Baruch, who is also mentioned in the
So, Jeremiah's party leaves Jerusalem, flees to Egypt, and then disappears
from the annals of history. Then, another party of similar description shows
up in Ireland.
There are other details to the story if anyone is interested. Just thought I
