    Who speaks Gaelic?

    Irish and Scottish Gaelic has provided the English language with a surprising number of words. Try to decipher the Gaelic term hidden in the jumbled words and thus complete the sentence so that it makes sense. The number in brackets represents the number of words that make up the jumbled characters as the examples show! The key word in the jumbled letters must be a word that originated from Gaelic as the below examples show!
    Good luck!
