The Gaelic language family includes Scottish Gaelic, Irish, and Manx; and is one of two branches of the Insular Celtic languages. Also known as Goidelic languages, Gaelic was once restricted to Ireland. Sometime during the 3rd and 6th centuries, groups of Irish began migrating from Ireland to Cornwall, Wales and Scotland, taking their Gaelic language with them and spreading it throughout the British Isles, which then developed into various dialects over the centuries.
