    However, as i said many times, hybrid ethnicities are difficult to classify. France, is a typical example. Scotland too. Both are listed as "western Germanic" , but Scotland is only partially (50%) Germanic, while about France............well, the problem is much more complex : both can be considered Germanic, but only in the WIDER sense of the word (especially France, in its the complex).

    Ireland can't be considered Germanic.

    In counties like Wexford, there is much Norse influence. One must remember the battle of Cluin Tairbh, the warring rival Irish kings Brian Boru and Mael Mordha both employed Vikings in their armies. Some Irish were sympathetic and took up arms with the Vikings, and Some Vikings took up arms alongside Irishmen.

    Protestanism is stronger among the Gaelic-speakers of the Western Highlands and Isles than probably anywhere else in Britain.

    Actually, that is a commonly held misconception.
    Catholicism tended to survive in the Hebrides while the Lowlands were almost totally changed during the Reformation. This state of affairs generally persisted until a new wave of Irish settled in the lowlands in the 19th century.

    I was actually suprised myself to discover how many Catholics there are in the Highlands and Western Islands who come from "native" Scots stock.
    There certainly are numerous Protestants in these areas but I'm of the opinion that is due to the strength and puritianism of their beiefs rather than solely on numerical value. Protestantism isn't quantitively stronger there than anywhere else in the UK.

    I'm referring to the modern state of affairs.

    This state of affairs generally persisted until a new wave of Irish settled in the lowlands in the 19th century.
    You're right in that it largely persisted until the nineteenth century, however it was at this time that things changed drastically in the Highlands and Islands due to Protestant missionary efforts. The situation is entirely different from what it was during and after the Reformation.

    I was actually suprised myself to discover how many Catholics there are in the Highlands and Western Islands who come from "native" Scots stock.
    There are still Catholics in some parts of the Highlands, and also some of the Southern Islands of the Outer Hebrides are predominantly Catholic.

    There certainly are numerous Protestants in these areas but I'm of the opinion that is due to the strength and puritianism of their beiefs rather than solely on numerical value. Protestantism isn't quantitively stronger there than anywhere else in the UK.
    The population of these areas is of course, fairly low, however percentage-wise, there would be a far greater proportion of people there who are "practising" Protestants than elsewhere in the UK.

    It all depended on what were the personal inclinations of a particular Laird. A bit like in Luther's Germany.
    I know Skye very well, and it's fiercely Protestant there. You can't even hang your washing out on a Sunday! They're Wee Frees and Presbyterians.

    Anyone heard about the 'Prophet' of St. Kilda?

    Actually there were instances when the Laird was absolutely opposed to his peoples' religion, insomuch that he wouldn't allow them to conduct worship on his land, so they went out on the beach at low tide.

    Alba means "Scotland". Scotland must keep it Gaelic langauge for the future. Because Scotland is first Celtic. I heard about many Chinese and Asians migrate to Scotland. They speak more English than Gaelic. Stop them to come to Scotland! Scotland and Scots Gaelic must keep it white people.
