CAPILLI NIGRI: The ancient Romans describe hair either as "light" or "dark" and sometimes "flame" (either "red" or "blond"). The word for "dark hair" is most commonly CAPILLI NIGRI, "flat-black hair." CAPILLI is actually plural, "hairs", and NIGRI means "dull/matte/flat black."
OCULI FUSCI (OCULI ATRI): Beautiful eyes (OCULI) in ancient Rome are either FUSCI, "dark", or else ATRI, "glossy/shining black" (as opposed to NIGRI, "flat black"). The English idiom, "a black eye," does not use words meaning "black" when mentioned in ancient Latin.
The ancient Latin term for Ireland is HIBERNIA, the island to the west of what the Romans called BRITANNIA.
