I am a lecturer in Modern Irish at University College Dublin, where I also completed my BA (Irish and German, 2006) and MA (Irish Writing and Communication, 2007). I was awarded PhD from UCD (2015) for a thesis titled: ‘The Irish Revival and Sport in Ireland, 1884-1934’. My research, until now, has focused on the history of the Irish language revival, Irish sports history, and roles of language and sport in the formation of Irish national identity. I am currently undertaking a research project on international aspects of the Irish language revival and am preparing a monograph on the influence of the Second Anglo-Boer War on the Gaelic League.
