>Isn't it supposed to be seven Celtic nations?
There are six modern "Celtic" nations (ie a Celtic language is spoken there,
or _was_ spoken there in modern times)
I know that some people like to include Galicia - but if we are bent on
including other nations with a long-distant Celtic past in this list, then
we might as well include France, Germany, North-Central Turkey, Switzerland,
Austria, Czech Republic, Belgium, etc., etc. - for Galicia has no closer a
Celtic connection than any other anciently Celtic country (and even less
than a region like Cumbria, which is often completely ignored, despite a
Celtic language survivng there into the middle ages).
