Throughout the long, turbulent history of this island there have always been those who forsake the fickle world of civilized society and take to the woods. The word Kern is an anglicized version of the Gaelic word "Ceithern" which translates roughly as "a warlike group". Woodkern can thus be described as "bands of warlike men who dwell in the woods". Though the phrase Woodkern refers to men who lived during a specific period of time, the Kern belonged to a very old tradition that dates back throughout the ages of recorded history into times of legend and myth. These men were often described as outcast or outlaws, and guerilla warbands of Kern were common throughout Irish history.
