This event, the second of three international workshops funded by The Leverhulme Trust, is being hosted by Professor Dáibhí Ó Cróinín, one of 6 Co-Investigators on the project. The first workshop was held in April 2018 in London, and the third will be held in Vienna in June 2019. The project focuses on the corpus of manuscripts written in Ireland, England or in English or Irish monasteries on the Continent between c. 650–850. The Network seeks to bring together curators of major manuscript collections and academics with research interests in Insular Manuscripts. This workshop, being held in Dublin and in Galway, focuses on ways that digital technologies can enhance the study of this corpus of manuscripts.
