Breandán Ó Buachalla Memorial Lecture

The ITS/NLI Breandán Ó Buachalla Memorial Lecture is held in the National Library of Ireland every March.

Breandán Ó Buachalla (1936-2010) was a long-time member of the ITS Council and an authority on Gaelic poetry.

The 2014 Breandán Ó Buachalla Memorial Lecture will be given by Dr Nollaig Ó Muraíle (Roinn na Gaeilge, NUI Galway) in the National Library of Ireland on Tuesday 18 March at 6.30 pm. The title of the lecture will be: ‘The Irish genealogies – Irish history's poor relation?’ This event is open to all.

This lecture will be followed by the launch of two books: the Festschrift for Seán Ó Coileáin entitled In Dialogue with the Agallamh and the Irish Texts Society reprint of Nessa Ní Shéaghdha’s edition of Agallamh na Seanórach.
