Nah they're all bloody foreigners - but cool on account of the good food. Y Freinck / y Gheil _are_ the names for the French. They're used somewhat interchangeably, but y Gheil is preferred by most speakers on traditional grounds. The difference in naming is for the Bretons, who aren't really foreign because they came from Britain and speak a language very close to Kerno even though they live in France. They're called y Vreton (sing. Bretu). Strangely enough, they live in Pays y Bretonnes. Padraic.
