There are mixed opinions on the subject, coming from different schools of thought – history, historiography, archaeology, folklore tradition and so on. Most ancient peoples documented are known to have performed some form of sacrifice or other, so why would Iron Age Celts 2000-2500 years ago be any different? The Romans themselves performed gladiatorial contests to the death, and animal sacrifice was part of most ancient peoples’ documented history. Does it have any bearing on today? Not really.
I don’t think it’s really an issue. In fact, I’d say it’s more of a non-issue, with spurious arguments being brought up today by some who just delight in being detractors.
