The complete history of the Ogham Alphabet, also called the Celtic Tree Alphabet, is unclear. We Know that it contains 20 letters which are made with single strokes,
each letter characterized by one or more lines arranged horizontally or at angles. Inscriptions were made in wood and stone. Inscriptions have been found throughout
Great Britain and Ireland and date back as far as the 4th century. Ogham inscriptions are read from the bottom of the inscription to the top. As to their purpose,
there are many theories, including using the language to mark graves and as a secretive code to communicate messages undecipherable by the Romans.
Scottish and Irish Gaelic are the same language with dialectic differences. “Creideamh”, “sonas”, and “dóchas” are shared by both while love in Scottish Gaelic is “gaol” and in Irish “grá”.
