I am sorry my friend but the so called "Aryans" as you call them did not come from Germany. They came from the central Euraisan stepes north of the Caucusus mountains in an area today called Krasnodar. They were one of the peoples generically refered to as Scythians by the Romans and Celtoi by the Greeks because of their wearing pants instead of the Greco Roman custom of toga or draped garments such as worn by the Greeks. It is from that same region that the earliest of my ancestors came emigrating before the time of the Greek king Agamemnon. Our oral tradition speaks of the travels of Nemed who was a king amongst our folk who were called Ibirians after IBIR the father of our tribe. After a sojourn in the Middle East and in Egypt they settled in the Spanish penninsula hence the name of that place as the Ibirian penninsula. Ours was the dominant culture in the region before the ascendency of Rome and a remnant of our peope still lives there in Gallicia on the north western coast of Spain. From that place my ancestors traveled to Ireland and after a rather prolonged war with the inhabitants ( Tuatha de Danan) of that place we settled and became known as Irishmen by all the world today. In the Christian Bible we are mentioned as Gallacians and the Romans called those who settled further north as Gauls.
