The National Centre for Franco-Irish Studies (henceforth NCFIS) was established in 2003. It was officially designated an Institute Research Centre in June 2006.



The primary functions of the NCFIS are the following:

  • The NCFIS is an interdisciplinary international research lab which examines the cultural, literary, commercial, philosophical and historical links between France and Ireland.
  • It is particularly active in the recruitment and training of graduate students.
  • While continuing to value traditional scholarship in terms of publications (14 essays collections and numerous monographs and journal articles), it also explores viable commercial opportunities as they present themselves.
  • It has developed a wide research network between TUD and numerous third level institutions in France, Ireland and further afield.
  • It benefits from the strong support received from the French Embassy in Ireland.
  • Membership Renewal for 2021 - Application form is available here >>
