Just for reference's sake, in Ill Bethisad there was no
divergence of the various forms of Gaelic like there was
here. Gaelic is still spoken in the Highlands of Alba, but
Breathanach and Doric are spoken in southern areas and, I
would guess, has a Scot's Gaelic substrate.
Gaelic is the language of Man and An tAonstat Eireann.
