Ireland - Celts
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Celts (Kelts) are a group of ancient European people who lived in central and Western Europe in pre-Roman times. In the modern world Celtic culture is usually associated with the British Isles. This is the only place the group of Celtic languages has survived until our day. Did you know that Celtic languages were once widely spoken not only in Britain, but also in France, Spain, the Alps, northern Italy, and even in central Turkey (by the Galatians referred to in the Bible)?
 
2     All those peoples, of course, were divided into different tribes with their own social customs and religious beliefs, but all of them shared a lot of common cultural heritage that is generally called Celtic. They dominated Europe from 650 BC until they were confronted and conquered by the Roman Empire.
 
3     With time, many of those peoples lost their Celtic heritage under the influence of different cultures. Only in Ireland did these traditions survive and flourish until the coming of the Vikings in the 9th century and Anglo-Normans in the 12th.
