until ~600 Gaelic

Irish developed in straight line from Gaelic which was spoken already before the 5-th century by the Celts who had settled on the Irish island. This language had originated from the fusion of the dialects of the various Proto-Celtic and Celtic immigration waves to Ireland. The oldest evidence of Gaelic is given by the ogham stones. On these stones, which were used as gravestones, stone tablets or land marks, the letters, which are composed of up to five lines for consonants or points for vowels, were scratched along the edges. The letters of this ogham alphabet are named after different natural entities. Because on ogham stones only proper names are found, statements about the language structure of old Gaelic are barely possible.
