  Aye, Kismit's Scots is bonnie. yes.gif

Also, Lugh was an Irish god, which is possibly why Darkwind associated the Irish before the Scots.

For the shear heck of it....
The child Lugh was born, and in later life joined the Tuatha De Dannan, a race of divine warriors, in there battle against Balor ( a tyrant king of the Fomorians) Lugh was a great magician,warrior, harpist,poet and craftsmen, who eventually went on to kill Balor, by using a sling shot to put his one fiery eye out and turn it against Balor's own people. By removing the eye wich had parched the crops, in this way Lugh tammed the power of nature and protected the harvest. He became king, and prosperity returned after a long age of barreness.

The Celts in Ancient History
People referred to as Celts first appear, in Greek texts, during the period archaeologists call the Iron Age. This was the last phase of prehistory, which in Europe North of the Alps comprises roughly the last 600 to 800 years BC. The Iron Age conventionally ends with the gradual conquest of Western Europe and much of Britain by the Romans, which is taken to mark the beginning of recorded history.

During these centuries, the Celts, also known as Gauls or Galatians, became the most feared of all the 'barbarian' peoples beyond the world of Greek and Roman urban civilization.

Many of the peoples of Europe at the time, from Spain in the West to the Balkans in the East, and from Northern Italy to the English Channel, were regarded by Greeks and Romans as related to each other, under the names 'Celts' (Greek: Keltoi; Latin: Celtae), 'Gauls' (Latin Galli), or 'Galatians' (Greek Galatae).

Archaeology has shown that these peoples possessed vibrant cultures, and developed superb artistic styles. (Right: Greek lotus motifs, top, inspired early Celtic artistic taste, and were imitated and developed into the 'La Tène' style, used especially on metalwork; lower drawings.)

These peoples have another great claim to modern attention. The word 'Celtic' is used today of peoples whose (present or former) native tongues are related to those of the Ancient Celts.

Among the most interesting aspects of the subject are the difficulty in defining exactly who the Ancient Celts were (and equally, who they were not), and just what relationship they have with the modern peoples often called 'Celtic'.
