IRISH: Whether it’s a Jamie Dornan-esque Northern Irish accent or a lilting Cork jibe, people the world over love the Irish accent. The history of this language begins with the period from the arrival of speakers of Celtic languages in Ireland to Ireland’s earliest known form of Irish, archaic Irish which is found in ogham inscriptions dating from the 3rd or 4th century AD. There were other Celtic languages spoken on the European Mainland, but they died out around 1,500 years ago. The Celtic languages are believed to have come from Common Celtic, which came from Indo-European itself. It is certain that there were other languages spoken here before Irish but, by the start of the Christian era, Irish was spoken all over Ireland and was spreading through Scotland, the west coast of Britain and the Isle of Mann. The Romans called the Gaels Scotti and they eventually spread the Gaelic language throughout most of Scotland.
