Today many of the people of Ireland think of themselves as 'Celtic', and indeed it is hard to think of the Celts without thinking of Ireland. Yet nowhere in ancient writings are the inhabitants of Ireland called Celts. The Celtic culture flourished around the Upper Danube from the late Bronze Age until it was overrun by the Romans and various Germanic peoples, but even in Europe there is no evidence that they called themselves Celts. They were known as the Ancient Kindred. They spread across Europe, scattering into tribal nations, and they brought their various traditions to Ireland as successive waves of invaders.
