Gaelic is an adjective that means "pertaining to the Gaels". As a noun, it may refer to the group of languages spoken by the Gaels, or to any one of the languages individually. In particular, the different Celtic languages spoken in both Ireland and Scotland are very often referred to just as "Gaelic", which can cause confusion.
