    Aud the Deep-Minded, or Auðr djúpúðga Ketilsdóttir was Norse, as were her parents, Yngveldr Ketilsdóttir and Ketill flatnef. She spent part of her youth in Hebrides where she was converted to Christianity and later she married Olaf King of Dublin. But I don't dare to say that she was a "Norse-Gael", because at the time she lived (the 800's) the viking invasion to British Isles had just begun and Norsemen were only starting coming to Iceland.

    You're a Norse-Gael. You're from Iceland. You're a Norse-Gael. That's what people from Iceland are, the descendants of Norse men who took Irish women with them to Iceland and had families.

    Icelanders have Irish heritage (mostly from Irish slave women brought by the colonists), but they're not Norse-Gaels. Norse-Gaels were those Norsemen who integrated into Gaelic society and adopted Gaelic ways of life, while Icelanders never adopted Gaelic practices
