Are Kilts from Scotland OR Ireland? (Some Basic Gaelic Garb History)

Are kilts Irish or Scottish? What did the Scottish wear before kilts? Why did the Irish wear kilts? (if they did) Was there, or is there, a pan-gaelic garment? What is the Irish Brat? What is an Irish léine? The traditional great kilt (“breacan an fheilidh” or “feile mor”) dates back to around the 16th century. But who came up with the idea?
