    Aud the Deep-Minded, or Auđr djúpúđga 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

    People in Ireland/NI often like to refer to themselves as part Viking. Viking heritage is always seen as a positive despite the pillages, etc. Looks-wise though, most of them are Keltic and Brünn.

    My username is practically a substitute for Norse-Gael, but forked with the Swedes of Finland (Rodskarl) and Danes of Ireland (Dubhgall), because I wanted to be comprehensive for the whole Norse experience. I've wondered what it would have been like to live in Galloway, Dublin and the Isle of Mann. McLachlan and Sutherland are also Norse-Gael names.
