Celtic Philology

Book Donation

The Centre for Irish Studies is delighted to inform that a unique donation of over 150 books on Celtic philology and literatures from the early Middle Ages up to the present is now available at the Jan Palach Central Library.

The volumes are shelfmarked as follows: 139 Keltské jazyky a literatury; 139.11 Stará irština a staroirská literatura; 139.12 Moderní irština a irská literatura; 139.2 Skotská gaelština; 139.3 Velština; 139.4 Bretonština; 139.5 Kornština; 139.6 Manština.

The collection was presented to the Faculty of Arts by the family of the late Professor of Linguistics at University College Dublin, Conn Ó Cléirigh, to whom we would hereby like to express our sincere gratitude. We are thankful also for the generous assistance of Dr Věra Čapková, the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and the Ambassador of the Czech Republic to Ireland, Hana Mottlová.

Other resources on the Irish language and literature are located in the library of English and American Studies at the Faculty of Arts. We are hopeful that the new volumes will bring pleasure to all students and enthusiasts with an interest in Celtic languages.


The Centre of Irish Studies wishes to acknowledge the financial assistance of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Ireland. Irish language teaching is funded from a grant awarded by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Ireland. Our special thanks are due to the Embassy of Ireland to the Czech Republic for their unrelenting encouragement and support.
