The questions that come to my mind when I hear this are: If it has Roman influence then would this still be considered CR?
I'm not a CR, I'm a Traditionalist, but IMO that's one thing I wouldn't understand. A lot of statues and what not that we have of Celtic deities came from areas of Roman occupation, because of State politics. However, it became a Celtic practice, in that area. Just like Ireland, the Irish didn't cease to be Gaels with the advent of Christianity, many pre-Christian Gaelic beliefs and traditions were absorbed into Celtic Christianity, and are still alive today. If one were to ignore these, then they'd be ignoring a huge part of our culture. Contemporary culture is something that is vital IMO, because we don't live in an Iron Age society, and we know about a lot of pre-Christian beliefs because of folk traditions. Considering there are huge amounts of information that we'll never know about the Celts, then that doesn't leave you with much, if the sources that have been influenced are discredited.
