Hello, and welcome to my website. This site is largely dedicated to traditional music. It appears somewhat bland at the moment, but I first want to present the information before I work on the aesthetics. All of these songs are traditional, so I assumed the copyrights never were made or are expired. The background song is a midi version of the traditional instrumental Eleanor Plunkett.
Hit the arrows to navigate right or left, the square middle button will always take you back to the alphabet. You can also hit the letters themselves to take you to that list of songs. The circular button, in the alphabet, is the only way to restore the FÁILTE window
Huath is where I'm putting my links in the Clár. You can see a picture of me there, and some interesting fonts.
An Shtair means history in gaelic. Gaelic is an Indo-European language belonging to the celtic branch. There are two groups of celtic languages that have survived, the 'q-celtic' and 'p-celtic'. You can think of these languages like two groups of three sisters who are cousins.
The q-celtic languages are Manx(now extinct but there is some talk of revival), Irish Gaelic and Scots Gaelic(these last two survive as community languages).
The p-celtic languages are Cornish(now extinct but revived with some success), Welsh and Breton. Welsh is by far the most successfull and even enjoys it's own media. Breton experiences very hostile treatment from its government.
All the celtic languages however are in danger of extinction.
