  • I'm a mixed bag of Irish, Scottish, Welsh as well as English, French, Apache, Cherokee, and Mexican Indian. Do I qualify?

    I suppose that makes me a Mutt-American.

    "The Welsh keep the Sabbath. And everything else they can get their hands on.
      The Scottish pray on their knees. And on their neighbors.
      The Irish don't know what they want. But are willing to die for it"
    Don't know about the Cornish, Manx or Bretons.
    Scots-Irish myself.

  • I'm partly Irish. Has anyone here ever tried to learn Gaelic, or another Celtic language? I've made half-hearted attempts, but haven't made much progress. I've learnt Castilian & can read Portuguese, am working on German now, but have found Gaelic much more difficult than any of the others due to the lack of cognates, the non-phonemic orthography & the initial mutations. If anyone is interested in it, there is a course on Irish Gaelic available for free on the internet at Erin's web, if I remember right.

  • I am not good w/languages and not living in Celtic community, of course, makes it far harder. FOund some sites that have online tutorials, but using, and storing those lessons in the gray matter no easy.....no use, you lose kinda thing....

    but, yes, would like to learn Gaelic....

  • Yes, I'm about as white as they come.  Half Norweigan, the other half is a mix of the Celtic isles-- with Irish being the least, Welsh, Scotch and English taking up the majority.  Paternal Grandmother is from Liverpool.

  • anglo snuck in?? :shocked:

    Just kidding, my mother is a proud Anglo, though like to remind her that her G-father, despite living and leaving an English port to the USA, the family name is from Cornwall

    If yo uwere to see me, I am in apperance Germanic, owing to mainly Bavarian, Prussian and a few others from German points unk......

    I have always been attracked to my Celtic heritage first......

    Noted elsewhere, might-though no definitive proof-have some Indian (aka Native American). Would like to do a DNA test, but would not trust where my sample would wind up  :wink:

    Even got a kilt, though wold have to take in again and huge on me now (got it when I was more then 50 lbs heavier)

    Trying to find a way to possibly squeeze into Scotland prior to the 2014 vote, was told in email by the SNP head that residents at that time, under UK law, might get option of Scottish citizenship......that would be great. Wrote a paper when I was a young lad, carrer goal? Scottish President  :smile:

  • Utterly Irish, on both sides of the family.

    However, I am sure some will persist in believing I must really be Jєωιѕн.   :wink:
