Centro por Canadaj Irandaj Studoj la Concodia Journal:

The Centre for Canadian Irish Studies (CCIS) marked St. Patrick’s Day by accepting a substantial donation from the government to support a scholarly research chair….

…Accordingly, the Centre’s visiting speakers have ranged widely, from Nobel-winning poet Seamus Heaney and former prime minister Garret Fitz-Gerald to cooking expert Darina Allen. Courses are similarly varied, including not only Irish history, traditional music, the Irish language (Gaeilge) and the rich literary canon, but also contemporary Irish cinema, Irish geography, and issues of Irish and Quebec political identity. Students can also prepare for field study in Ireland on a specific subject.
