The School 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.
The school's theme for DIAS 2020 is
"Exploring Worlds through Words"
As we mark 80 years of discovery, we will be taking a closer look at each of our constituent Schools.
One of the first Schools founded in 1940 was the School of Celtic Studies.
Today we launched DIAS 2020: marking 80 year of discovery with a number of themed events based on our primary disciplines.
The programme to date is available on our events page and will be updated as the year goes on!
#OTD in 2019 @mitchelloconnor unveiled a portrait of Dr Sheila Tinney here at DIAS. Dr Tinney was appointed the first ever female fellow at DIAS and later became a Research Associate at the Institute’s School of Theoretical Physics.
Today also marks her birthday 🎂
Busy start to the week: An international team led by scientists from DIAS has discovered that large portions of the tectonic plate, or lithosphere, beneath Africa have disappeared over the past 200 million years
