Cló Ollscoil na Banríona

Cló Ollscoil na Banríona ('Queen's University Press')

Cló Ollscoil na Banríona, a small at-cost, not-for-profit academic press, was based in Queen’s University Belfast from 2000–early 2013. It was run by John Kirk and Dónall Ó Baoill. Its main series was Belfast Studies in Language, Culture and Politics. With a focus on the Gaeltacht and the Scotstacht, the press’s publications contribute to an interdisciplinary approach to the interaction, confluence and divergence which has been experienced between Ireland and Scotland across the centuries and which, at the start of the twenty-first century, is being revived, reconceived and politicised in innovative and exciting ways. In addition, the press published titles on behalf of the ICE-Ireland Project and on Northern Ireland place-names.
