Kelts:From Proto-Indo-Europeans (kin to the Skyths, Massagetae, Italics) to Proto-Celts to the founding fathers of most of Europe

"Celts": If the name means anything to the average American, it probably calls to mind a parade in Boston on St. Patrick's Day, when even the beer is dyed green. 
Beyond a vague notion that the Irish, Scots, and Welsh share a romantic common heritage in some way different from the English whose language they mainly use, the Celts lie forgotten and irrelevant in the mists of time.



Such ignorance is one of the symptoms of a race on the verge of collective suicide, for those with no knowledge of, or pride in, their forefathers are no more likely to have any concern for future generations of their kinfolk either.
Yet the Celts are regarded by historians as "the fathers of Europe." Genetically as well as culturally they played a major part in laying the foundations for the great achievements of the White race. 
                                 
Just as important, many of the mistakes they made which condemned them to defeat and collapse contain lessons today for those striving to save our race from sinking forever into a sea of color, ignorance, and eternal

THE CELTS OF EIRE

PUBLISHED BY KENNETH S. DOIG


The Irish Celts

Head of a Man Wearing Helmet; 
Celtic,2nd to 3rd Century

It was in Ireland that Celtic culture and institutions lasted the longest—although Christianity was introduced at an early date, Ireland did not suffer any major invasions or cultural changes until the invasions of the Norwegians and the Danish in the eighth century. The Irish also represent the last great migration of Celtic peoples.


 In the fourth and fifth centuries, the Irish crossed over into Scotland and systematically invaded that territory until they politically dominated the Picts who lived there. The settling of Scotland in the fifth century was the very last wave of Celtic migration. 


For Celtic culture, Ireland is much like Iceland was to the Norse. It was sufficiently removed from mainstream Europe to protect it from invasions and to isolate it from many of the cultural changes which wracked the face of early Europe.

How 4.5 million Irish immigrants became 40 million Irish Americans

This paper tends to support my and others' belief that English ancestry is massively underreported in the US Census.

PUNBLISHED, FORMATTED & EDITED BY KENNETH S. DOIG

"If 'race' as a concept is oversimplified, what can or should we use to describe and define our heritage or familial lineage? Ethnicity, genetics, ancestry, lineage and family all denote something about our origins, but what? Perhaps the more immediate question is whether the completed Human Genome Project will define a concept of race that is scientifically credible and useful." Ari Patrinos

ANOTHER LIE: The Welsh and Irish Celts have been found to be the genetic blood-brothers of Basques

Genes link Celts to Basques by

The Welsh and Irish Celts have been found to be the genetic blood-brothers of Basques, scientists have revealed. The gene patterns of the three races passed down through the male line are all "strikingly similar", researchers concluded.


Basques can trace their roots back to the Stone Age and are one of Europe's most distinct people, fiercely proud of their ancestry and traditions.

Another nail in the coffin of the Iberian Irish myth (Irish Celts Are NOT Related to Basques)


Published by Kenneth S. Doig


The question is a bit absurd. They don't "vary so much" from other NW Europeans and it's not "if they're NWE," they are. In fact the Irish and Scots are one of the most racially pure European groups.


Within the last few months, the genetic genealogy community has placed a new SNP (L21 / rs11799226) on the Y chromosome phylogenetic tree downstream of the most frequent western European haplogroup (R1b). Preliminary results suggest the overwhelming majority of Irish R1b carry the mutation, while L21 is absent in the Iberian samples and subclades tested so far. R1b from England and continental northwestern Europe seem to be split between L21-derived and L21-ancestral. It's still early and I'd like to see more data, but I think L21 (and thus the direct male ancestor of the majority of the Irish) most likely originated in northwestern Europe. The supposed link between the Irish and Iberians was built on the high frequency of R1b Y-DNA in both regions. The autosomal and mtDNA data never supported any sort of special or close relationship between "Celts" and Basques; it's now clear that Y-DNA doesn't, either.

GOIDELIC CELTIC : Q-CELTIC

Scýttiscu héahland, Glencoe

Published by K.S.Doig


Irish

Irish, or Irish Gaelic, is the oldest of the Goidelic group of Celtic languages.
Ancient written examples exist in the ogham inscriptions, on about 370 gravestones scattered through southwestern Ireland and Wales. Dating from the 5th to the 8th century, the inscriptions consist almost entirely of proper names. Irish can be grouped into four periods: Old (circa 800-1000 CE), Early or Early Middle (1200-1500 CE), Middle (1200-1500 CE), and Modern (from 1500 CE). Originally a highly inflected language, Irish retains essentially two noun cases, nominative and genitive, with the dative surviving in the singular of feminine nouns; the language has only two verb tenses in the indicative mood. It is chiefly spoken in the western and southwestern parts of the Republic of Ireland, where it is an official language, and to some extent in Northern Ireland. In the past century, the number of Irish-speaking persons has declined from 50 percent of the population of Ireland to less than 20 percent.

Scottish Gaelic

A form of Gaelic was brought to Scotland by Irish invaders about the 5th century, where it replaced an older Brythonic language. By the 15th century, with the accretion of Norse and English loanwords, the Scottish branch differed significantly enough from the Irish to warrant definition as a separate language.
The alphabet of Irish and Scottish Gaelic is identical, consisting of 18 letters. Scottish Gaelic employs four cases of nouns: nominative, genitive, dative, and vocative. Like Irish, the accent is on the initial syllable.
Scottish Gaelic exists in two main dialects, Northern and Southern, roughly geographically determined by a line up the Firth of Lorne to the town of Ballachulish and then across to the Grampian Mountains, which it follows. The Southern dialect is more akin to Irish than is the Northern, and is more inflected. The main difference is the change of the é sound, which is eu in Northern dialect and ia in Southern. Thus, the word for "grass" is pronounced feur in Northern and fiar in Southern. Scottish Gaelic also has a few thousand speakers in Nova Scotia.

Manx

The language of the Isle of Man is classed as a dialect of Scottish Gaelic, with strong Norse influence. It began to decline in the 19th century, and in the early 20th century it became virtually extinct. The first written records are of the 17th century, and Manx literature, apart from ballads and carols, is negligible.

Sample-files from A Sound-Atlas of Irish-English

Published by Kenneth S. Doig

This section allows you to access the sound files based on recordings of speakers from different parts of Ireland which were made by Raymond Hickey during several years of field work. The data made available here is only a very small section of the total amount contained in A Sound Atlas of Irish English (Berlin: Mouton de Gruyter, 2004). In all there are over 1,500 recordings stemming from nearly 1,200 speakers in the sound atlas. There is also sophisticated processing software (written by the present author) which will allow you to extract information from the atlas using parameters which you specify yourself, for instance you could look at all female speakers from rural areas above 50 or all males under 20 from urban centres. You can also consult the realisations of lexical sets with speakers from different parts of the country. There are stretches of free text as well, again read by speakers from various parts of the country.
