I've been lurking here for a few weeks and have found the discussions very
interesting.  In addition to being of primarily Scottish/Irish heritage,
I'm also something of a hispanophile, so I thought I'd chime in here to
mention that Galicia is also the name of the autonomous region in the
Northwest of Spain.  It is a region that is often likened to Scotland in
appearance.  The language now spoken in the region is Gallego, a dialect
somewhat intermediate between Spanish and Portuguese.  I don't really know
anything about Celtic cultures in the region, though.  As an aside, Tom,
do you ever go to the Half Time Rec?
