Irish Studies: Articles

Looking for Journal Articles on your Topic?

The quickest way to find articles on a specific topic is by searching a relevant database. I recommend the ones listed below for Irish Studies.

Some databases provide the full-text of articles, but sometimes there is only a citation.  To access a copy, look for the "Article Linker" button, or try one of the methods described in the column on the right.
