Except of course that Gaelic is *entirely* unrelated to Hebrew.  And
no amount of selective name sound-alikes will show otherwise; that is
mere folk-etymology; it is possible to prove almost any language
related to any other language by carefully selecting the soundalikes.
The language is different.  The grammar is different.  The bulk of the
words are unrelated, except when they were borrowed from the Bible
after Christian missionaries visited Ireland.
