Would "Hibernophone" work? Just curious.

I believe it's Gaelophone, or something along those lines. Though I'm not sure whether or not that would also apply to the other Goidelic languages.

It's "Gaeilge" not "Gaelic"

hehe, Gaelophone. A person that speaks Scottish Gaelic is a 'Gael' (although this is debated as 'gael' translates to 'highlander' - and there is ambiguity in that can mean someone with the Gaelic language, or a geographical 'Gael' (someone living in the Highlands of Scotland or a combination of both factors. But Gaelophone is more fun!

That's right.
Similarly:
Béarlóir - English speaker
Frainciseoir - French speaker
Breatnaiseoir - Welsh speaker
etc.
