The first conference for Franco-Irish Studies was held in IT Tallaght in 2003. The proceedings, France-Ireland: Anatomy of a Relationship, co-edited by Grace Neville and Eamon Maher, were published by Peter Lang. Below is a notice from The Irish Times of the 29th of January 2004:

Eamon Maher - NCFIS'So fascinating and varied is this cornucopia of essays on Franco-Irish relations, as recorded at an interdisciplinary conference in the Tallaght IT some time ago, that it is difficult not to keep reading - even if one is neither an academic nor a Francophile. The theme of the university - in Ireland and France, Irish students at French universities and recent French critical thought - is threaded through the work. Also examined are myths surrounding those twin pillars of power - politics and the Catholic Church. Notable are Phyllis Gaffney's essay on links between UCD's French Department in 1909-22 and the struggle for Irish independence, while two comparative essays - Eamon Maher's analysis of a John McGahern and a Jean Sulivan novel, and Angela Ryan's comparison of works by Kate O'Brien and François Mauriac - also make interesting reading.’ - Kate Bateman
