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.

Event postponed: Library Lunchtime Lecture series 'Sisters II'. Dr Diane Urquhart, Professor of Gender History, QUB, will give the fifth lecture in this new series.

As a precautionary measure we are postponing the rest of our 'Sisters II' Lunchtime Lecture series. We will re-schedule at a later date.

Following on from the success of our 2019 Library Lunchtime Lecture series 'Sisters', we are pleased to announce we are continuing with this theme in spring 2020 with five new lectures and speakers. The series celebrates the lives and achievements of five families of sisters who have made their mark on Irish life. You can listen back to last year's lectures via Soundcloud.
