"Myles Patrick Dillon (11 April 1900 – 18 June 1972) was an Irish scholar whose primary interests were comparative philology, Celtic studies, and Sanskrit.[1][2]" - Wikipedia

"My purpose has been to put together the evidence that I have been able to collect for the survival, in India in the East and among the Celts in the West, of old Indo-European traditions. The matter includes languages and literature, society and religion; and the most valuable evidence for my purpose is that which concerns only India on one side and Gaul, Britain or Ireland on the other. Features that are peculiar to these two reasons can fairly be planned as archaisms that have survived in lateral areas, and thus as part of an Indo-European heritage." from the preface.
