Hey Samhain_Knight, So Ireland is the least "Anglosized," of all the Celtic Nations. Is that why your language is practically dead whereas our (more ancient celtic) language is thriving and is the only Celtic tongue to have bucked the pan celtic decline in speakers and increased in number? I love the Irish but you do like the sound of your own voices and love telling the world how fantastic you all are. zzzzzzzz. Can the Scots and Irish try to remember they are not the only peoples in these isles of Celtic ancestry.
P.S. most of the Southern Scots are descended from Germanic peoples just like the English, they used to be welsh (check out our most ancient poets who lived and wrote there.)
American person: So your Irish, like from the UK do you know the Queen?
