M. Awbery, Steve Harlow and Jim McCloskey whose paintings first and foremost sparked my curiosity, and led me to adopt this undertaking. i would like to thank Joe Emonds and Alec Marantz who learn parts of bankruptcy three and five. i'm rather thankful although to Kathleen Flanagan, Frank Heny and nameless referees who learn a dyslexic and schizophrenic manuscript, supplying me with criticisms that superior this ultimate model significantly. The Welsh nationalist group in Aberstwyth and its Breton counĀ­ terpart in Quimper helped make the time I spent in Wales and Brittany effective. i'm indebted to Thomas Davies, Partick Favreau, Lukian Kergoat, Sue Rhys, John Williams and Beatrice between others for sharing their wisdom in their languages with me. Catrin Davies and Martial Menard have been specifically sufferer and worthy. with no their counsel this paintings might were infinitely poorer. i'm hopeful that this publication may help stimulate extra curiosity within the Celtic languages and tradition, and help, even in a small approach, these in Wales and Brittany who fight to maintain their language and tradition strong.
