IB's Celtic Tongues are strong in different ways, though just as rare.

In IB, Irish and Scots Gaelic are both considered part of the same language rather than independent. Common Gaelic is a standard dialect descended mostly from the vulgar dialects of North Connacht and Ulster due to their universal intelligibility and strong modern literary tradition, but with strong influences from Classical Gaelic and the dialects of Munster, Leinster, and Scotland, and is considered the standard Gaelic dialect. It is used in literature and on TV.

The southern Brythonic languages never developed, in favour of the evolution of British Romance and the formation of Brithenig, Kerno, Cumbreg and Breathanach.
