What is the difference between Gaelic and Celtic?
The Celtic language family is divided into a "Goidelic" (Irish, Scots and Manx Gaelic) as well as a "Brythonic" branch (Welsh, Breton, Cornish). In other words, Gaelic is a part of the larger Celtic universe.

They are different dialects of the Gaelic language group; as their names indicate Irish Gaelic is the dialect most often spoken in Ireland, and Scots Gaelic is spoken in Scotl…and. In most respects they are quite similar though some words, spelling, and pronunciation are different. ANOTHER VIEW: They are different enough to be classified as separate languages.

There are many differences between the two sports, too many to go through in detail. Here are just a few. Most obvious is the shape of the ball, the way the ball is moved, and… the scoring system. Gaelic Football uses a round ball whereas Rugby uses an oval ball. Rugby allows you to run with the ball while holding it, whereas in Gaelic Football the ball needs to be bounced or kicked from toe to hand and back as the player moves. Forward passes are not allowed in Rugby and throwing the ball to pass it is not allowed in Gaelic Football. A Gaelic Football goal is like a soccer and Rugby goal stuck together. 1 point is awarded for putting the ball between the posts and over the cross bar, and 3 points for getting the ball into the net. Rugby allows you to kick the ball over the crossbar for 3 points, or 2 points after the ball has been touched down for a try. A try is worth 5 points. The ball must be brought across the endline and has to be touched down for a try to be awarded.

Answer: Anglo-Saxon is the term usually used to describe the Germanic tribes who invaded the south and east of Great Britain during the early 5th century AD. These trib…es were the Angles (from Angeln), the Saxons (from Lower Saxony), and the Jutes (from Jutland). The term is also used to refer to the inhabitants of England just prior to the Norman Conquest in 1066 AD. The term "Celtic" refers to the peoples who were know to the ancient Greeks as Keltoi and to the Romans as Celtae. This refers to a large number of tribes groups spread widely over western Europe, speaking common or similar languages, and ranging from parts of the British Isles through France, Spain, and parts of Germany, as well as E. Europe, and Asia Minor. The Celts occupied Britain before the Anglo-Saxons and their languages were not similar.
Anglo-Irish was a term used historically to describe a privileged social class in Ireland, whose members were the descendants and successors of the Protestant Ascendancy, Angl…ican Church of Ireland, which was the established church of Ireland until 1871, or to a lesser extent one of the English dissenting churches, such as the Methodist church. Its usage continued in the Victorian era, when it described a class composed mostly of Church of Ireland adherents who had adopted many English customs. Irish Gaelic (correct)/Irish Language or Gaelige (gail-igg) is the language that can be spoken in Ireland.

The term 'Celtic' is an 18th century term first invented by Edward Lhuyd in 1707 to group various old regional languages into a grouped system, the term was largely romanticis…ed during the course of the 19th century to a level of fantastical notions, before 1707, the term was unheard of. However, as the seminal literary works of post Celtic romance era have largely been able to since assess it's effects, such as James Simpson (1999) and Brian Sykes (2006), it can now be understood for the romantic propaganda that it is, it has become this since it's original concept as just a modern collective linguistic grouping. --- Here is more input related to the topic: Recently published genetic research has shown that the vast majority of Irish people are not Celtic in origin but descend from an earlier race of settlers/invaders.All Scots are NOT Celts. Most Scots are largely Caledonian Pictish, Scandinavian Viking and a bit of Germanic Angle and others origins more rarer. The name 'Scot' is believed to an ancient word derived from the term 'Scythia', 'Scot' and 'Scyt' being synonymous terms, both collectively known as 'Scutten' in old German.Recommended reading, 'History of the Scottish Nation' - Vol.1 chapter 21 in particular, by Dr.James Wylie.Also, the only part of ENGLAND that is of Celtic origin is the county of Cornwall in the South-West of that country. This is why there are some Cornish separatists.--- There is no such thing as a Celt. There are artefacts of Celtic design and there are languages that are described as Celtic: Welsh, Gaelic, Breton and Gallego being the principal examples. There is no demonstrable link between the Celti or Keltoi of Classical sources and the people who live in Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Brittany or Spain, popularly identified as Celts today, or indeed their kin elsewhere in the world,.
One of the main reasons the Roman and Celtic churches were so different was that they both developed differently. The Celtic church developed in Ireland, away from all Roman i…nfluence, because it was never a part of the Roman empire. It was also shaped by the local concerns of the native people of Ireland. The Roman Christianity, although it touched the hearts of many, was based solely on keeping peace among the inhabitants. It was thought "unfashionable" to not be a Christian in Rome.
They are both derived from Old Irish but are considered separate languages today. Some refer to Irish as 'Gaelic' especially overseas. For clarity they can be called 'Irish Ga…elic' and 'Scottish Gaelic'.
