I’m legitimately aghast at this assessment of Celtic language revival efforts.

You honestly believe Yeats/Celtic Revival ‘invented’ the Irish language? That Welsh or Gaelic are composite doodles drafted up into reality by amnesiacs and hallucinations?

Actually, I wrote a book arguing the opposite. Yours is a Bad Take.

I can’t imagine how you get from criticising the 8th repeal to describing the  Irish language as a hallucinogenic swill brewed up for emotionally inept culchies …

Oh wait I know how.

Ergo, those giving out about “authentic” or “imaginary”, “natural” or “fake”, are the ones least positioned to proffer evaluation or judgment.
