Mainly relating to the culture, language, and society of the Celts. "Celt" apparantly came from the Greek term for "Secret People", since little was known of them, and still not very much is. Genereally known to be a tall race of people, their coloring ranged from dark-eyed and dark-haired to blue-eyed and fair-haired.

Having conquered most of Europe, and even terrorizing Rome itself at one point, this viscious race was highly advanced. Ironmaking, womyn having the same status of men, going nude into battle to discomfort the enemies.

Still, for all of their adavancements, their languages had become so varied that they could no longer understand each other. When the German peoples attacked and defeated Rome, they also defeated the Celts...

Only In Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, the Isle of Man, and Brittany, France do the Celts survive.

Scots Gaelic name for Scotland.

Can be found in Latin too, meaning "white", or "bright".
Alba, mo dhachaigh, chan urrainn dhomh dhut thighinn... guma tu bhios beò 's gu math gu bràgh.

The cornish come from cornwall. They are more clever than you think and have an excellent sense of humour.

One thing occasionally overlooked is that the cornish are actually celts. They are related to the irish, scottish and welsh, not forgetting the bretons. When naming the celtic countries, cornwall should be mentioned, but sadly never is.
Man 1: The cornish?

Man 2: Yeah, part of a great race of people called the celts!

Quite possibly the greatest place on the planet, this is reflected by British Tourist industry figures. More people from the UK go to Cornwall on holiday then fly abroad. Problem is, we don't want you here. We live in a beautiful place far far away from the North East or any crime-rife cities and we, the Cornish people would like to keep it that way.

Nothing pisses me off more than not being able to surf because of the sheer volume of pastey-white bodies on the beach and in the water. Really, stay at home this summer, we'll like you a lot more for it.

The Gaelic Mother Language of Ireland. Banned by English law when Ireland was under immoral English jurisdiction, the language slowly went into decline, being replaced by the forced, foreign language 'English'. Roughly 200,000 Irish people claim to be able to speak Gaeilge, but the fluency figure is most likely lower. England is to blame for the near extinction of our ancient and poetic language.
Is breá liom an Ghaeilge mar is í mo theanga. (I love Irish because it is my language.)

The ancient language of Scotland, akin to Irish Gaelic, having come from Ireland with the Scotti tribe, who eventually became the dominant people of Scotland... until the English came in, forcing the Scottish Gaels into the Highlands while the English took the lowlands with some of the native Gaels.

Prejudice against the Gaels and their beautiful language is still found today, sadly. Largely due to the desire of the English to take over the whole of Britain, among other places, and the expulsion of highlanders from their homeland in the 1700s and 1800s, the clan system and the Gaelic language was largely lost.

Today, only about 1% of Scotland speaks its native tongue. In Nova Scotia (Alba Nuadh), Canada, several thousand Gaelic speakers exist, although largely older people.

Still, upsurgence of interest in the beautiful, fragile Celtic languages is happening.
Chaill sinn ar cànan bhrèagha, taing do na Sasannaich. Carson? O, pàidhidh cuideigin air sin.

Chan urrainn dhomh a maise chur loinn air na cluasan mo dhachaigh. A' mhaise 'gus a ceòl a fuaimean, air falbh? Cha ghabh mi sin!

Th'ann a' Ghàidhlig gu leòr 'san dùthaich seo fhathast! B' urrainn do rudeigin (math) thachairt gum b'urrainn dhi shàbhail!

Tha i beò fhathast; th'ann dòchas maireann; tha i comasach ri tigh'nn air ais, ged 's mathaid cha bhi ise 'n cànan as motha... ach mairidh ise beò.

(We have lost our beautiful language, thanks to the English.

I cannot hear her beauty gracing the ears of my home. The beauty and music of her sound, gone? I won't accept that!

There's enough Gaelic in this country still! Something (good) could happen that could save her!

She is still alive; there is hope still; she is able to come back, although perhaps she won't be the biggest language... but she will survive.)
