Yes, it most certainly is! If you look at some old Irish books, it's pretty clear that they had some pretty interesting martial arts back in the day (seen in books like the Tain). Too bad it was lost, I'd love to know what the "Heroic Salmon Leaping" skill was.

while i'm sure that the Celts had developed some forms of hand to hand and weapon combat due to the very violent times they lived in.

i would not use THE TAIN as an example

it is a folklore tale that was stuck together from parts of other stories.

i would imagine that if you actually saw "Heroic Salmon Leaping" you would not be that impressed
