2019 Breandán Ó Buachalla Memorial Lecture

‘Collecting the Fragments: Breandán Ó Buachalla in Cape Clear (1960-2007)’

Irish Texts Society Breandán Ó Buachalla Lecture at the National Library of Ireland on 26 March 2019 at 6.30 pm

At the time of his death in 2010, Breandán Ó Buachalla was working on a publication Cnuasach Chléire, a word list with phonemic transcriptions and explanations that showed common traits of the Irish dialect of Cape Clear, aspects of its morphology and syntax and revealed the rich vocabulary of life-styles now forgotten. In this talk, Cathal Goan, retired Director General of RTÉ and co-editor with James McCloskey, UCSC, of Ó Buachalla's Cnuasach Chléire, talks about Ó Buachalla’s work and what it reveals of island life and the language of its people.

Irish Sagas Online

A new website was launched at the annual UCC/ITS seminar on Saturday, 9 November, 2013. The aim of Irish Sagas Online (iso.ucc.ie) is to make available reliable versions of the original texts of medieval Irish sagas with parallel translations into Modern Irish and English. This website is the brainchild of Tom O'Donovan of University College Cork and has been launched with the participation and co-operation of the staff of the CELT project and the Celtic Digital Initiative. A central feature of this website is the provision of links to extant electronic resources which will allow interested parties better understand the context and content of Irish sagas.
