The Early Irish program from Trinity College Dublin can be taken as a second follow-on year to build on knowledge gained on the Diploma in Old Irish course.
The course will last for one academic year, beginning in October, and requires full-time study. Students with no prior knowledge of Old Irish may take the preliminary year-long course for the Diploma in Old Irish (see Diploma webpage). In the MPhil year candidates will be assessed by examination (in summer) and a thesis of c.20,000 words.
