  • Mac-ghníomhartha Bhriain / Tomás Ó Concheanainn (Conradh na Gaeilge, 1905) 
  • Brian Bóirmhe : a shaoghal agus a bheatha / Seán Ua Ceallaigh (Conradh na Gaeilge, 1906) 
  • Programme for Kincora by Lady Gregory at the Abbey Theatre (Irish National Theatre Society, 1905)

  • A new song for Peggy & Brendan : to the tune of 'Brian Boru's harp' (St. Sepulchre's Press, 1969) 
For many of the items, it is their first time on display and they both welcome and warrant a visit. Look for the table decked in blue and gold in the Library foyer!

Gaeltacht = Longer Loans!

From tomorrow (Wednesday) morning until Friday April 11, we are extending our loan period for undergraduate students from 1 week to 3 weeks.  Any books renewed in that period will be renewed for the longer loan period also.

This is to allow for the undergraduates' schedule over the next few weeks which means they may be off-campus for up to three weeks - with reading week followed by a 2-week gaeltacht placement for B.Ed.'s.
