Hello everyone! Like many Celticists I am looking forward to a week of fun at the XVIth International Congress of Celtic Studies, which is held in Bangor this year, from July 22-26.
I am extra excited because this year I have formed a team with the fabulous Nike Stam and Elva Johnston to give you a tripple whopper on the history of martyrologies in Ireland. The session will be called Mapping Irish martyrologies: creation, composition, and manuscript copies. Nike will be discussing the commentary to the Félire in the two Brussels manuscripts and Elva will focus on the martyrology of Máel Muire Ua Gormáin.
The title of my paper will be Irish Saints Between Past and Future: the Language of Memory and Identity in the Félire Óengusso.
Update: unfortunately my attendance at this event had to be cancelled due to having been admitted to the hospital.
