The Language of Heaven

Welsh is a Celtic language and is more closely linked to Breton than either Scots or Irish Gaelic. It has been used as a written language since AD600, which makes it one of the oldest languages, especially when you consider that two of the most widely used European languages - French and German - were not used until 300 years later.
