Michael O Cleirigh Summer School

The 2024 Mícheál Ó Cléirigh Summer School was held over the weekend of Friday 10th to Sunday 12th May.

The School was established in Rossnowlagh in 2013. The first Summer School took place on 17th May, 2014. The purpose of the school  is to celebrate the life and achievements of Mícheál Ó Cléirigh and his colleagues, the other members of the ‘Four Masters.’ The school also commemorates the work of the Franciscan Friars of the period who lived in Donegal and in Louvain. Mícheál Ó Cléirigh was born in Creevy, between Rossnowlagh and Ballyshannon and the Franciscan Friary today is located in Rossnowlagh. 

The theme of the weekend was ‘Words, Language and Lore/ Focail, Teanga agus Seanchas’ and it examined how words and language collided in Mícheál Ó Cléirigh’s Ireland.
