Irish Studies

For many people, the study of genealogy sparks an interest in knowing more about the culture and civilization that their ancestors were a part of. In order to fuel that interest, we are providing a few links to begin you on the path of what we hope will become a lifetime of exploring our shared ancestral history, culture and language. We hope you find material that is of use to your specific endeavours.
