Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

And just to point out to the world in general...the Irish language is called IRISH...not GAELIC!!  And the country of Ireland is IRELAND not EIRE!!

Now...that feels so much better...

Gaelic is a Celtic language, isn't it?  I think some of the Scots speak it, though less and less so as time passes.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.

Based on this link I think Irish, Scottish, and Manx are all Gaelic languages.

No...gaelic is really a blanket name for all the celtic languages.  Irish speakers and Scots Gaelic speakers would not necessarily understand each other.  As a matter of fact Irish speakers from the East and West of Ireland would have difficulty understanding each other.
