The six territories recognised as Celtic nations by the Celtic League are Ireland (Éire), Scotland (Alba), Wales (Cymru), Cornwall (Kernow), Brittany (Breizh), and the Isle of Man (Mannin). Each has a Celtic language that is either still spoken or was spoken into modern times. Brittany is located in the north-west of France while the Isle of Man is a self-governing Crown dependency in the Irish Sea between Great Britain and Ireland.
