Biography
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 Approximately 600 unpublished poems have been transcribed from manuscript and are currently being proofed.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.
 
Description of Research Interests
Medieval Irish: language and literature. Historical and comparative linguistics. Writing systems, in particular Ogam Classical Modern Irish Bardic poetry. The Grammatical and Syntactical tracts of the Classical Modern Irish poets.
