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.

George Bernard Shaw was the most famous Irishman in the world for much of his life – yet, for many, he is now largely forgotten. If he’s remembered at all in popular culture, it’s as the author of the original play on which My Fair Lady was based, Pygmalion. 

Judging Shaw - the Shaw Day festival aims to change that – a new festival of all things Shavian, coordinated by the Royal Irish Academy, to mark the anniversary of Shaw’s death on November 2, 1950.
