Brian Boru in the Irish (Brian Bóramha i nGaeilge)

Brian Boru united Ireland. Quite a rare feat! Around a thousand years ago. 

This music is from Alan Stivel, who is a Breton from France.

Alan Stivell - Brian Boru

Here is the translation, which is from the Irish as well as Breton.

This information about the six Celtic nations is from Wikipedia

The six territories recognized as Celtic nations are Brittany (Breizh), Cornwall (Kernow), Ireland (Éire), the Isle of Man (Mannin), Scotland (Alba), and Wales (Cymru).[1][2] Each of these regions has a Celtic language that is either still spoken or was spoken into modern times.[3] In addition, areas of north-western Spain and Portugal, particularly Galicia, Cantabria and Asturias and Minho, Douro, Tras-os-Montes (Northern Portugal) are oftentimes identified as Celtic, due to the unique culture of the region. Unlike the others, however, no Celtic language has been spoken there in modern times.[4][5][6] Before the expansions of the Roman Republic and Germanic tribes, a significant part of Europe was Celtic.[7]
