The Irish language, still spoken in the ‘Gaeltacht’ areas of counties Donegal, Galway, Mayo, Cork, and Kerry as a community language, represents the last western outpost of an ancient Iron Age Celtic civilization which extended at one point as far as Asia Minor. During the last few centuries of its existence, the language has been primarily the vehicle for a rich and varied folk culture, unsurpassed anywhere in western Europe, and from the late 1800’s it has also been the focus of a popular revival movement which has resulted in a flourishing modern literature.
