Social.Culture.Celtic FAQ


Preliminary Notes

Apologies to all for not posting the FAQ towards the end of last year. Too much work and too little time. Thankfully normality has returned and over the next few months this document will be posted regularly to soc.culture.celtic and the WWW updated here at sunsite.

Please read this FAQ before posting to soc.culture.celtic

The FAQ is NOT a political document, the information is offered, with no bias to any of the communities in Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland and no bias towards the devolution movements in Wales or Scotland. In fact, this document attempts to present only information about any of the Celtic communities and does not side with any particular side in any political matter. Mind you the way things are going this is less of a problem of late.

Accents in this document are represented by a / or \ after the vowel in question e.g. e/ represents e-fada (=e acute)

The UK phone numbers in this guide will be changing this Easter Sunday, April 16. Replace the initial 0 with 01. i.e. 031 123 4567 will be 0131 123 4567 (or from outside the UK,+[44] 131 123 4567) The new style phone numbers are already in operation.
