Irish (Standard Irish: Gaeilge) is a Goidelic language of the Celtic language family, itself a branch of the Indo-European language family. Irish originated in Ireland and was historically and still is spoken by Irish people throughout Ireland.

Ancient History. The first settlers came to Ireland around 6, BC, in the period known as the Mesolithic Age, archaeological evidence suggesting that they probably came from the Galloway region of Scotland and Cumbria in northern England to the east coast of Ulster.   In the Celtic world, there are many Scandinavian influences. Within Scotland, Ireland and Isle of Man, the Vikings influences were mainly Norwegian. The Norwegians established significant settlements and then Kingdoms here. In Wales, there were recorded Viking raids and some evidence of small settlements. In Cornwall, strategic alliances were formed with Danish Vikings in.

The Book of Invasions is a history of Ireland drawn up in the 11th century and based on oral traditions together with some poems and narrative prose available at the time. It is known as Lebor Gabála Érenn in Irish, and although the book was originally presented as a realistic history, most scholars today regard it as mostly mythical.   If you need a little more recent history, Bardon's "Shorter Illustrated History of Ulster" continues through , so it provides a bit more of his typically insightful writing. Marc Mulholland's "Northern Ireland: A Very Short Intro" is current to , and is a pretty good s: 5.
