In April 2012, a conference was held in the
School of Celtic Studies, Dublin Institute for
Advanced Studies, to mark the centenary of
Osborn Bergin’s lecture on ‘Bardic Poetry’
to the Irish National Literary Association in
Dublin. An eminent scholar in the field of Irish
and Celtic Studies, Bergin had a remarkable
knowledge of the Irish language from the Old
Irish period down to the spoken language
of his day. The present volume contains
the papers delivered on that occasion,
which encompass the fields of philology
and grammar, metrics and poetry, editorial
approaches to primary manuscript sources,
lexicography and orthography.
