Bringing Ireland to Notre Dame, Notre Dame to Ireland, and Ireland to the World
The Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies is a teaching-and-research institute dedicated to the study and understanding of Irish culture—in Ireland and around the world—in all of its manifestations.
Our signature Speakers and Public Talks Series goes virtual this year.
A new initiative at the Institute expands our study of Ireland and its place in the world.
