The Cornish also are known to wear the Kilt and have their own Tartan.

All the Celtic nations - and Canadian provinces - have their own tartans these days.

But at least they invent their own. I remember a few years ago, that the Border Check was redubbed the "Northumbrian Tartan", despite the fact it crosses the Border, and the earliest example of it was found in

"1...It had the backing of the Welsh government."

This is the first time, I think, Mr Miles. It was running several years before. All of the Government Ministers who spoke were from Plaid.

Everyone has there own tartan these days, even Glasgow Rangers :shock: . The Kilt as we know it today is a modern invention so its not really "Pan Celtic", the horse hair sporran is an army thing. Did you know youre not supposed to wear a belt with a Charlie jacket :roll: & only a dress sporran :roll: ...Yes, who writes this crap????

I'm aware this event has been running for several years, the point I'm making is one it gets government support it tends to be more popular.

I think they did the right thing. The overt political aspect has been played down, but the nationalism is more subliminal. Perhaps this is what we need to go for. As I've said before, St Andrew's Day is at the wrong time of year. :sad:

These events were attended by Celtic peoples from all the Celtic Nations - brothers and sisters all. Celtic languages that many dismiss as dead were to be heard quite openly.

In Cardiff, in excess of 7,000 people attended 'Dewi San' - a mixture of Celts from the Celtic Nations.

In Kernow, commercial radio in the form of Pirate FM had wall to wall patriotic coverage of the events in the Duchy although the publically funded BBC radio station felt ill at ease in its coverage of such matters and referred to Kernow as a 'County' rather than by its correct form 'Duchy' drawing scorn from many people towards the so called 'public information channel'.

Throughout, much solidarity was shown towards the Cornish who have suffered at the hands of the authorities in Kernow.

Here is the link to the pictures of the Celts:
