Is é Imleabhar 41 an chéad imleabhar ón bpaindéim dhomhanda agus mhol an Dr Ó Laoghaire an t-eagarthóir, an tOllamh Mac Mathúna, as a chuid oibre. Rinne sé comhghairdeas leis an eagarthóir, leis na húdair, leis na léirmheastóirí agus leis an mbord comhairleach as an bhfoilseachán.

ÉIGSE: A Journal of Irish Studies, Volume XLI, edited by Professor Liam Mac Mathúna, was officially launched in NUI, 49 Merrion Square, on Monday 13 June 2022 by the Registrar, Dr Patrick O’Leary.

Launching the latest volume, the Registrar expressed his sincere thanks, on behalf of NUI, to Professor Liam Mac Mathúna for his work as editor of Éigse and commended the latest volume for the excellence of its scholarship and the range of its content. He made special mention of the challenges Professor Mac Mathúna faced producing a volume to such high academic standard and quality during the recent pandemic.

The Registrar emphasised that since its foundation in 1908, the National University of Ireland has always had a particular commitment to the Irish language and to Celtic Studies. Scholars such as Douglas Hyde and Eoin MacNéill were early advocates and a tradition of scholarship in these disciplines rapidly developed and became embedded in each of the NUI colleges, now constituent universities. That tradition is also continued through the publication of Éigse.

He noted that Professor Mac Mathúna is fifth in line of distinguished scholars who have edited Éigse since 1939: Gerard Murphy (1939-59); Brian Ó Cuív (1959-74); Tomás Ó Concheanainn (1975-86) and Pádraig A. Breatnach (1987-2010).

Professor Mac Mathúna then thanked the scholars who contributed articles and reviews for publication in Volume XLI. He commented on the wonderful range and diversity of papers, which includes discussions of language and literature, as well as reviews of current scholarship. He noted that the volume also includes obituaries of two eminent Celtic scholars: Professor Emrys Evans and Professor Hildegard L.C. Tristram. He thanked the Advisory Board members of which some were in attendance, He also thanked the staff of NUI, Richard Kelly of CRM Print + Design, and Four Courts Press for looking after sales and distribution of all Éigse publications.

Professor Mac Mathúna was also very pleased to announce that for the first time, one paper from volume XLI was being made available via open access. And he commented that he hoped to continue this practice in future, selecting historic and new papers to make available.

    Éigse has been published by the University since 1939 with the aid of the Adam Boyd Simpson Bequest and is now funded by the NUI Publications Fund. Éigse is devoted to the cultivation of a wide range of research in the field of Irish language and literature. Contributions, which may be in Irish or English, are particularly welcome from younger scholars and those working in newer and emerging research areas such as the interaction of manuscript and print, the revival period, and sociolinguistics.
