I love Irish names (particularly since I learned how to pronounce 'Siobhan' recently), and was curious about the origin of "Fir Bolg".

According to legend, there were six groups that settled in Ireland, the first three of which are the Cessair, Partholón, and Nemed. When the Nemed are defeated, they scatter into three locations: one group "into the north of the world", another to Britain, and the last to Greece. Those who went into the north become the Tuatha Dé Danann (Tuath Dé), the main pagan gods of Ireland. Those who went to Greece become the Fir Bolg, who were supposedly enslaved by the Greeks and made to carry bags of soil or clay, hence the name 'Fir Bolg' (men of bags). •

Another interpretation of "men of bags" points to more war-like characteristics. The Irish word fir means "men" and the word bolg/bolc can mean a belly, bag, sack, or bellows. It has been suggested that it originally meant men who were 'bulging' or 'swollen' with battle fury.
This makes sense if you've ever read the stories of Cú Chulainn and his legendary ríastrad (battle frenzy).

"O individuo é uma construção realizada pela sociedade graças à cultura, mas
simetricamente, a sociedade se constrói também graças à cultura." �(Claval)

Talvez a única forma de entender a si próprio, seja entendendo esta relação individual-coletiva. O Geoterapia é isto e, estamos apenas começando!

Solve this riddle below!

Until now, I still have two seniors in a same departement, whose birthdays are known. One was born exactly in Summer Solstice. Meanwhile, another was born two days later from Spring Equinox. They both were born in a same year. Riddle me this when I give you clues:

Spring Equinox: 20:54 (Western Indonesian Time)
Summer Solstice: 15:19 (Western Indonesian Time)

What are their birthdays and when were they both born?

Note:
- These terms - Summer Solstice and Spring Equinox - refer to Northen Hemisphere.
- Pay attention when you solve the clues, especially data on Summer Solstice
- These clues indicate the time when Summer Solstice and Spring Equinox began in a year.
- I prefer using Western Indonesian Time to Greenwich Mean Time
