The alphabet in the scan in the following link is used to write the prayer "Hail Mary" in the Breton language. I've searched Omniglot, Ancient Scripts, and every database that I know of in order to find this alphabet, and to no avail. Any clue or help as to its name or origin or ANYTHING (besides the fact that it is used to write the Breton language) would be much appreciated.

The scan is here:

This is the text the Roman/Latin alphabet:

Notice that a lot of the letters look to be influenced by Greek, and that there is a one-to-one correspondence between the latin alphabet and this alphabet, except, for "ch." I've already tried e-mailing the guy that posted the scan, and the e-mail doesn't exist any more.

Any help is appreciated.
