Irish type is also sometimes called Gaelic script because it’s a part of insular scripts, which were created for printing Classical Gaelic.
Most of these characters were widely used during the 16th and 18th century. Insular scripts were a type of medieval calligraphy invented in Ireland that spread across Europe due to the influence of Irish Christianity.
Nowadays however, they are rarely used. If you will encounter Irish fonts, these are no longer the complex Gaelic scripts as seen centuries before. Instead, they will have accents reminiscent of its classical roots.
These are readable, yet manage to have that exquisite Gaelic flourish that will lend a magical charm to your works.
