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.

Professor Alvin Jackson will be visiting the United States in March and April to discuss his new book.
Our title has been named a Foreword Reviews’ 2015 INDIEFAB book of the year awards bronze winner.
The exhibition features 42 portraits by David Rooney included in our book 1916 Portraits and Lives.
16 panels depicting Rising leaders who had train stations named after them in 1966 are going to be unveiled at stations across the country over the next few months.
To mark the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising, a gift for the people of the world - a free eBook of 1916 Portraits and Lives - has been produced.
On 8 March the Royal Irish Academy, in partnership with Bus Éireann, launched a campaign to commemorate some of the women of the 1916 Rising, to coincide with International Women’s Day 2016.
A complete set of prints from our recent publication 1916 Portraits and Lives is now on display in the Ulster Museum, Belfast.
