    Consequences: The First Hundred Years, 1869–1969

    Séamus Mág Uidhir and the Book(s) of Knockninny

    Library Lunchtime Lecture. Dr Nollaig Ó Muraíle, MRIA, gives the first lecture in our series on The Books of Knockninny: the Maguires and their manuscripts in the early eighteenth century on 29 January 2020 in Academy House.

    This Irish manuscript was compiled in 1718 for Brian Mág Uidhir of Knockninny, Co. Fermanagh. It contains a selection of historical poems and prose texts and is now usually referred to as the Book of Knockninny. It was presented as a reworking of an older compilation that had been made in 1638 for Brian Mac Cú Chonnacht Mág Uidhir. The older manuscript had fallen into disrepair and Brian Mág Uidhir of Knockninny invited scholars to assemble manuscript sources at Knockninny so that scribes could produce a new Book of Knockninny in 1718.

    The contents include Gabháltas na hÉireann, Réim Ríoghraidhe na hÉireann, Seanchas na Naomh nÉireannach, Cath Mhaighe Léana, Teagasc Rí Solmain, the Ó Cléirigh recension of the Leabhar Gabhála, and a variety of historical poems. It also contains poems from the early seventeenth-century poetic dispute known as Iomarbhagh na bhFileadh

    Royal Irish Academy Cunningham Medal

    Royal Irish Academy Cunningham Medal

    Professor Nicholas Canny MRIA, distinguished historian, received the RIA's premier award the Cunningham Medal on 28 January 2020.

    He is well known for his scholarship on both the History of Ireland and Atlantic History, and has also been an academic leader at the National University of Ireland, Galway where he was Vice President for Research, 2005-8. During this tenure he worked with his peers in six other universities to have Humanities and Social Studies opened up to the possibilities of major funding under the government’s PRTLI (Programme for Research in Third Level Institutions) scheme.

    Professor Canny’s international standing as a historian has been recognised both through his election to fellowship in a number of other academies, including the British Academy and the American Philosophical Society, and his appointment as editor for the first volume of The Oxford History of the British Empire.

    Professor Canny served as President of the Royal Irish Academy from 2008-2011, and subsequently was appointed by the European Commission as a member of the Scientific Council of the European Research Council (2011-16). There he was elected by his peers to serve as Chair of the Open Access Committee where he succeeded in having the Commission’s Open Access rules made more hospitable for researchers in Humanities and Social Sciences.

    Peter Kennedy, President of the Royal Irish Academy congratulated Professor Canny for his enormous contribution to scholarship, and for his work to further the objectives of the Academy where, since his election in 1981, he has served repeatedly both on Council and in Office most notably as President from 2008-2011.

    On hearing the news that he was to be the 2020 Cunningham Medallist, Professor Canny said that association with the Royal Irish Academy had helped to guide and enrich his work throughout most of his career and that this award of the Academy’s highest honour had placed him further in its debt.

    Reflections on the role of a Learned Academy

    Reflections on the role of a Learned Academy

    Listen to Professor Michael Peter Kennedy reflect on the role of a Learned Academy in the Royal Irish Academy Presidential Discourse.

    About the Discourse

    Since the foundation of the Royal Society in 1660, learned academies around the world have shared a common mission of fostering science, learning and academic research. Today, academies are independent self-governing bodies of distinguished scholars drawn from the fields of natural sciences, social sciences and humanities. They contain a unique human resource of intellectual excellence, experience and multidisciplinary knowledge dedicated to the advancement of science and scholarship. Some academies perform research, some are publishers, many are custodians of national cultural treasures, most recognise excellence through prizes and grants, all contribute to public debate in their home countries. This Discourse by the President of the Royal Irish Academy, Professor Michael Peter Kennedy explores the invaluable contributions that learned academies already make to society, opportunities for them to contribute more, and the challenges to their remaining vibrant and relevant in a world that needs but does not always understand evidence-based research.
