The word "Celtic" is used to apply to a group of related languages, found on both the European mainland and in what are now Ireland and Britain. So yes, you can find Celtic stuff in places other than Ireland -- and if the person who emailed me had actually READ the article she was criticizing, she'd have understood that.
At any rate, it did occur to me that there are probably a lot of people who are under misconceptions about what the term "Celtic" really does mean, in an academic and anthropological sense, so I decided this might make a good glossary sort of piece. If you're prowling around here at About Pagan/Wiccan and you see the word "Celtic" appear, this is where its roots are: What Do We Mean By "Celtic"?
