School of Celtic Studies

Due to the current Covid pandemic, the 2020 Tionól has been postponed.

To protect the welfare of students, scholars and staff at DIAS and in the public interest, DIAS is closed to non-DIAS personnel until further notice. This includes closure of the library at the School of Celtic Studies. All public events have been postponed.

DIAS staff, students and scholars are still contactable by email and by phone. If you are making a delivery or conducting a service please adhere to the on site policies in terms of signing in and out.


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.
