The Gaels or Goidels are speakers of the Gaelic languages; a branch of the Celtic languages comprising Irish, Manx and Scottish Gaelic. Historically, the Gaels were a distinct ethnic group. Gaelic language and culture originated in Ireland, extending to Dál Riata in southwest Scotland. In the Middle Ages it became dominant throughout Scotland and the Isle of Man also. However, in most areas, the Gaels were gradually anglicized and the Gaelic languages supplanted by English.
