THE ROYAL IRISH ACADEMY IS IRELAND'S LEADING BODY OF EXPERTS IN THE SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES
The Royal Irish Academy/Acadamh Ríoga na hÉireann champions research. We identify and recognise Ireland’s world class researchers. We support scholarship and promote awareness of how science and the humanities enrich our lives and benefit society. We believe that good research needs to be promoted, sustained and communicated. The Academy is run by a Council of its members. Membership is by election and considered the highest academic honour in Ireland.Read more about the RIA
The Royal Irish Academy has developed resources that are of use in the classroom. The goal is to motivate and inspire primary, second level and third level students on the island of Ireland. Each of the links below will bring you to a page that describes the resource, whether that is free access to Art and Architecture of Ireland and the Dictionary of Irish Biography, or the curriculum-linked lesson plans that can be found on the pages for A history of Ireland in 100 words, A history of Ireland in 100 objects, Judging Dev, Documents on Irish Foreign Policy, or the Irish Historic Towns Atlas.
