The CELTIC REPUBLIC OF APPALACHIA is a state of mind. We are interested in preserving and celebrating Celtic culture in the Appalachian region of the United States, where so many Irish, Scottish, Welsh, and Cornish immigrants settled and where their descendants live today. On the following pages, you can read about Celtic history, languages, art, music, and spirituality. And you can read about some of the Celtic traditions that have survived in Appalachian culture. We also have listings of pubs, businesses, language courses and groups, musical sessions, and festivals that are of interest.
And if you do not know who the Celts were and who we are, read on....
Eireoidh na Ceiltigh Arís!
Eirigh na Ceiltich A-rithist!
The Celts Shall Rise Again!
