Well first of all you have to realize the Irish are not just Celt's, they have many ancestral origins and just like Britain which whom they share a
hell of a lot of ancestry they are a mixed Island nation not an inbred one (except perhaps some extremely remote community's with no TV set's to
occupy them then again TV is lousy in Ireland/Eira for the most part).
Ancestral line's include Dane's from the viking period as well as other Nordic and Scandinavian invaders, Celt's actually have surprisingly not much
to do with the Irish at all despite similarity's indicating a cultural influence, North African, European especially BASQUE and by some account's
especially by study's on the native DNA of Ireland, the closest people to the Irish were undoubtedly the Pre Roman invasion British with whom they
likely shared ANCIENT maternal ancestry?.
Despite it's lack of huge bronze age city's (Surviving to this day) there was a Sophisticated and internationally linked Bronze age culture in
Ireland that had international trade across the bronze age world, traditional and now long lost martial art's, unique art style's and even a native
alphabet were all part of the lost Irish legacy.
Here is some stuff off of the net concerning this.
There is argument about the origin of the Celtic language also, the Irish and the Welsh variation's have word's that are not native to the Indo
European language group though these languages are included within that catagory, that aside that categorization of the WESTERN Celtic language may be
partially correct only and it may incorporate part's of earlier languages indicating a continuation of pre celt culture influence culture within the
western Celtic population's.
Word's such as Shamrock, in Arabic Shamrack?
These non indo european characteristic's though could be Partially explained due to bronze age trade and interaction but that is only me throwing
that on the table for consideration though the Celtic culture supposedly only got there a little over 2300 years ago and Eira was definitely already
There is also the strong genetic link to Spain, not surprising as other than Britain - Spain and France are Eira's closest neighbors while Spain
would have been the most frequented coast for trade to the bronze age Mediterranean meaning that folk and there gene's probably mixed quite regularly
on that route.
