Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The lecture series summarises Irish history from the Mesolithic era up to the end of the 20th century. The lectures will be held in the English language. Students are expected to make use of the comprehensive reading list, especially the English-language books. Experience has shown that candidates who depend solely on lecture notes and have not consulted books from the reading list generally receive a low grade.
