Launch of Classic Irish Plays website at NUI Galway

You are cordially invited to the launch of the new
Irish Research Council-funded website:

This website was created by Dr. David Clare as part of his recently-concluded, IRC-funded postdoctoral research project, “The Hibernicising of the Anglo-Irish Playwright”. That project was based in the Moore Institute at the National University of Ireland, Galway. provides scholars, theatre practitioners, and the general public with invaluable biographical information related to the major Irish playwrights whose work has entered the public domain. It provides links to where the great scripts by these playwrights can be found online, and it features new digital editions of important plays that have never been previously digitised, or that are only available in digital form behind “pay walls”.

The website will be launched by Prof. Patrick Lonergan, Director of NUI Galway’s Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance, on Mon., 5 December 2016 at 5.30pm in Room G010 of the Moore Institute (located just inside the Hardiman Research Building). At the event, there will be additional input from Prof. Dan Carey, Director of the Moore Institute; David Kelly, the Moore’s Research Technologist; and, of course, Dr. Clare himself.
