Chair of Early Irish, Head of Department (Centre for Irish-Scottish Studies)

On-going Project: I have been directing the Bardic Project of the Centre for Irish and Scottish Studies for the past four years. The purpose of this is to make available in computer-readable form all Bardic poetry that has survived from the period 1200-1650. Approximately 600 unpublished poems have been transcribed from manuscript and are currently being proofed. A further 1,400 published poems nave been retrieved from their various places of publication. It is hoped that this work will be complete at the end of this academic year (04-05) and that publication will be possible very soon thereafter.
