Something which surprised me was that our Gaelic ancestors were, from what is known, very tolerant of homosexuality. This is simply amazing, showing how forward thinking the Celts were back then. I don't know if they were the only ones to be tolerant of homosexuality, but they were certainly in the minority in relation to their attitude towards it.
That said, the Gaels were always an extremely forward thinking race, treating women with far more equality than was given to them in other cultures.
Unfortunately, with the arrival of the English (and, to a lesser extent, Christians) came the destruction of our civilisation, and the tolerant attitudes of our ancestors were deemed "uncivilised" and needed to be "modernised" by the superior race that occupied our nation.
