The School of Celtic Studies is dedicated to the study of Irish and the other Celtic languages, both written and spoken, throughout their history, as well as related areas of cultural, social and legal history. Employing both academic staff and post-doctoral scholars, we publish books and other online resources, issue our journal Celtica, and host events such as our annual conference, Tionól.

Major projects of the School include:

We also host important online resources in our field.

  • Monasticon Hibernicum, a database of early Christian ecclesiastical settlements in
    Ireland, produced by Ailbhe MacShamhráin with Nora White and Aidan Breen at Maynooth University
  • The Bardic Poetry Database, by Dr Katharine Simms of the Department of History, Trinity College Dublin.
