The Celtic Congress:
The International Celtic Congress is an educational and cultural organization whose aims are to perpetuate the ideals, cultures, and languages of the Celtic peoples. It has a branch in each of the Celtic countries: members come together to exchange common interests and concerns at the annual conference.
