This seminar will provide participants with a general introduction to the Irish language, outlining its development, its morphology and its defining features. The second part of the seminar will outline the development of Irish personal names and family names and provide a synopsis of the anglicisation process. This section will examine the meaning and typical structure of Irish names, illustrated with examples from all periods of the language. Participants will be invited to complete a number of tasks during the seminar which will engage them with the language and its onomastic heritage in a practical manner.
