A Conversation for A History of Modern and Extinct Celtic Languages

"The Gauls in fact, were the last known mainland Europeans to speak some form of Celtic."
Fortunately my ISP was ATF yesterday, so I didn't embarrass myself by suggesting Breton - which I now know to have re-colonised the mainland. But what about Gallician?

I've studied the Celtic languages... three, in particular. Irish and Scots Gaelic, and Welsh. Gallician bears no resemblance to them whatsoever. I really don't know where it came from.

Galician is a halfway house between Portuguese and Spanish, though closer to Portuguese. It is therefore only very distantly related to the Celtic languages. Nevertheless, there are no doubt people from Galicia who claim Celtish descent.
