Hey, I enjoyed reading through your site (which has some terrible grammatical errors, but is generally interpretable) I’m Irish, from the north of the island, and interested in other Celtic nations I’m also particularly interested in the myth that our ancestors sailed from northern iberia to populate Ireland. This is a nice notion, one I would like to believe, but I would like to find more evidence of this. Many thanks for setting up this site and best of luck developing it further.
Thanks, I guess…
Saludos soy de jalisco Mexico la area llamda Nueva Galicia ahora se llama Guadalajara

Gallaic Revival Movement
The Gallaic Revival Movement is sponsored by the Gallaic Celtic League in Galicia, Spain. The “Atebivota Dictionary Project” is based on the reconstruction of the Gallaic language once spoken by the ancient Gallaeci in Galicia, Spain circa 600BC to 200 A.D.
The members of the Gallaic Revival Movement believe in the theory that the Gaels (Gallaeci) left the shores of ancient Gallaecia to establish themselves in Hibernia circa 500 B.C. Their Gallaic language eventually evolved into written Primitive Irish circa 400 A.D. and Primitive Irish developed into Old Irish circa 600 A.D. Gallaic, Goidelic and Celtiberian are extinct Q-Celtic languages.
Our project is to reverse the Gallaic stages of evolution from Old Irish to Primitive Celtic upon the utilization of the exclusive primitive Q-Celtic word entries acquired from the Old Celtic Dictionary to achieve the reconstruction of our Gallaic vocabulary. The grammar application will certainly be our most strenuous assignment. The Atebivota Dictionary will be a trilingual Galician – Old Celtic – Gallaic dictionary. The project is currently under reconstruction.
We’re not accepted, nor recognized by many Celtic organizations and societies as a Celtic Nation, due to the lost of our Q-Celtic language. The comprehension of our Gallaic tongue, even though reconstructed, will complete our identity and acceptance as modern Galician Celts.
Our Manx brothers had an arduous task in reviving their Manx Gaelic language since the death of Ned Maddrell in 1974, their last native speaker. Unfortunately, the corrupt development of the Manx language by John Phillips of Man was based on English and Welsh orthography. John Phillips of Man translated the “Book of Common Prayer” into Manx. Perhaps in the near future a revival group can finally introduce the proper Classical Gaelic orthography in the reformation of the original Manx language.
The Lusitanian language (Lusitanian: Leukantu) is considered by some authorities as an archaic P-Celtic language. The Acel-Trebopala group has done a magnificent task in the reconstruction of their Lusitanian language.

Great site. You must get hold of a book called “The Origins of The British” by Stephen Oppenheimer. Its ISBN code is 978-1-84529-482-3
This explains in (far too much!) detail that the people of the western British Isles are the descendants of people from Galicia, Northern Spain including the Basques and Portugal. The genetic evidence is irefutable – it is not a myth! During the ice age, one of the few places that Europeans found refuge was in the Atlantic coast of the Iberian peninsula. When conditions improved, they migrated north. That is why there are stone circles and temples along the Atlantic coast and other cultural similarities. The term Celtic is just a label. There were no Celts as such just a culture that extended from Portugal to Orkney and was kept alive by maritime trade. Similarly the English have much in common with the Germans, Dutch and Danes because of sea travel. Its quite simple really and the genetics proves it.
All white Europeans are descended from only seven stone age women anyway!! These are the seven Eves of Europe. And before that we are all descended from Africans. We are brothers and sisters – a world family. I am exploring Galicia on the internet and one day I hope to visit.
I live in south Wales. We still have our language and poetry but our music tradition is not as strong as the Irish. Next week we hold our national Eisteddfod – a week-long festival of poetry, prose, singing, dancing, rock music, choirs, fine art and debate. We have our own government and TV channels. In the words of a popular song,
“Er gwaetha pawb a phopeth
Ry’n ni yma o hyd!”
“Despite everyone and every thing
We are still here!”
Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar
one and i was just
wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how
protect against it, any plugin or anything you can suggest?
I get so much lately it’s driving me
insane so any help is very much appreciated.
Hello, im galician and i have visited ireland recently, i thought i was in my land! we dont have a celtic language because of the romanization, but irish (i dont know about welsh and scotish) and galician share lots of traditions, if you need some help with this web i could help you.

this sector don’t notice this. You must continue your writing. I am confident, you have a great readers’ base already!

The Gallaic Revival Movement has just reconstructed the Gallaic language also known as Gallaecian. Actually it is being spoken among the members of the Gallaic Celtic League (Liga Celtiga Galaica) in Galicia, Spain.
My family is from Galicia, and all this was very interesting and I’ve visited most of these places.
I’m pretty sure you got some of your information wrong in the history of Muros section though. The Spanish Civil War was not in 1808 but rather the 1960’s, and so I don’t think the French burned down Muros during the Spanish Civil War.
Greetings, I am an Australian, largely of Irish, Scottish and French extraction. I often get told I “look Spanish” (dark hair, hazel eyes, medium skin. I also have a natural affinity with “Spanish culture and language” and now I know why!!! I am also very interested in the History of the Celtic peoples. My brother’s haploid groups put us very clearly in the regions described. Thanks for this and best wishes.
PS I am a medieval re-enactor and have the “cup” as my personal heraldry – which it turns out is the heraldry for Galicia. (oh and when I say Spanish, I mean “Spanish”). Another interesting item – the family genealogy also shows a v. small influence of Italian – ?? Roman ?? as I have family from London, I am thinking 1st-4th C Roman via Londinium, however, given the Roman influence in Galicia…could be???
My heritage is half Scotch/Irish and half German,I have never have the money to go to Ireland or Scotland and to tell you the truth,if I went I don’t think I would come back.I’m very interested in learning the Celtic language and heritage. It isn’t just a fad to me, it’s a deep feelings of belonging.A feeling of being one with the land and the past,the people and the heritage. I was raised in Arkansas in a very a very musical irish family.Great grandfather played the fiddle and danced, one side of the family were very musical and were well known in bluegrass,old hillbilly music music. everyone had red or redish colored hair.I didn’t realize at the time just how irish-scottish we were.Doing our genelogy I have traced us back to the 640’s in Scotland. My brother even married a girl from ScotlandLOL I have been working for a Scottish singer for several years now. His name is George Donaldson and sings with Celtic Thunder. They are amazing. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MGALBAScotsTradMusicAwards

I have only just discovered this site and I thank you for setting it up. I would be interested in learning if Sean, who has commented here, ever found the evidence he sought for the migration of the proto-Irish (not a formal term, my coinage only) from Galicia to Ireland. If so, would he share that evidence or direct others to it? Hoping to hear, Patricia
A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.
I do think that you ought to publish more on this subject, it may not
be a taboo subject but generally people don’t speak about these subjects.
To the next! All the best!!

Nice website and very informative.
However, you are leaving out the various racial influences in Galiza left by the Romans, the Moors and,after the Reconquista, other Spaniards that made Galiza their home working in the shipyards. This has changed the DNA substantially. I am a 100% Gallego born in Cuba but do not consider myself the same race as the Irish I went to school with in NYC. I have green/bluish eyes and was blond as a child, but my skin has a slight Mediterranean hue. I have seen this in many Gallegos. We are not, in my opinion, Celts anymore. We are a mixed race people and we should be proud of it.
Hello, My name is Rachel and I am doing research on my mothers side. My great grandmother and great grandfather came from Muros, Spain in 1914 and 1915 and landed in New York. His last name would have been Porto and her maiden name was Gonzalez. My great grandfather did not know who is father was because apparently his mother was a prostitute. My great grandmother came from a huge family. I think there was like 8 brothers and 3 sisters. Two of the girls one of which was my grandmother was mute. There was also a family argument that led to a couple of them to changing their last name to Moro. I hope this is some help. If anybody has any information I would love for you to Email it to me. Thank you! And thank you for this website!
