The Ulster Place-Name Society's annual Deirdre Flanagan Memorial Lecture delivered by Dr Brian Ó Doibhlin

About this event

The Ulster Place-Name Society's Spring Lecture is held in memory of Deirdre Flanagan who was editor of the Bulletin of the Ulster Place-name Society and one of Ireland's leading authorities on place-names. She was senior lecturer in Celtic at Queen's University Belfast at the time of her death.

Dr Brian Ó Doibhlin is a graduate of Queen’s University Belfast (BA 2014, PhD 2021), Ulster University (MRes 2017) and NUI Galway (Diploma 2017), and he also held a position as a previous Fulbright FLTA scholar at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana. He recently completed his PhD in the Department of Irish at Queen's University where his research focused on uncovering the origin of townland-names in South-Derry and North-Tyrone (commonly referred to as 'Mid-Ulster'). Dr Ó Doibhlin is currently working as a translator for the Department of Communities within the Northern Ireland Executive.
