I once heard a irish-american argue the same thing on a celtic reconstructionist forum.
He was pretty intelligent and while I was a bit sceptical about an irish-american arguing this, to be honest he won me over.
I still think there is a lot he hasn’t heard or read, but I think his parents did a better job of passing information on than him. Luckly since I live here I get to read lots more information and talk to a lot more people.
He argued language is very important if you want to learn about a path, I disagreed then but he is probally correct. The bits I know has helped from time to time and material in irish is very useful.
