Note, however, that this kind of course requires as much effort as an ordinary campus course and that it is equally important to meet set deadlines.

About the course:

This course builds on Old Irish II. You will read texts in the original Old Irish to improve your knowledge of the language and gain an insight into the literature. Texts can usually be chosen to suit the interests of those taking the class. For example, you may read 'The Dream of Óengus' (Aislinge Óengusso), a mythological love story about the god Óengus.
