The flower of the free, the heather, the heather

The Bretons and Scots, and Irish together

The Manx and the Welsh, and Cornish forever

Six nations are we, proud Celtic and free!

I think that while Galicia has celtic heritage, it is not counted among the Celtic Nations because they lost their language centuries ago.

Galician is a Romance language, though. Even if it retains the odd word of Celtic ancestry.

They used to have a living celtic language, but it disappeared with the rise of gallego. So nobody said gallego was a dead language.

A research team at Oxford University has found the majority of Britons are Celts descended from Spanish tribes who began arriving about 7,000 years ago.

Even in England, about 64 per cent of people are descended from these Celts, outnumbering the descendants of Anglo- Saxons by about three to one.

Wow shocked at the results! People apparently dont really know anything about celtic languages/tribes etc. I thought it was very popular (you often find references in fiction and games, but also things named after it. And very popular for tatoos and other graphic things. Also a bit like the fascination people had with ancient egypt or atlantis. Or I guess with norse mythology )>

Scotland and wales were actually the last ones I thought of (think my order was breton, manx, cornwall, ireland scotland.. long pause, wales.)

It's not only Galicia but also Asturias that was an important Celtic settlement and one of the regions were Celts were more relevant at that time was Avila. Avila has still a lot of Celtic monuments, but the problem is that with the Roman invasion the Celts left Avila and moved to Galicia and Asturias.
