History edit

Founded and edited by Donnchadh Ó Corráin of University College Cork since the early 1980s[note 1] until 2016, Ó Corráin passed on this role to

Dáibhí Ó Cróinín (NUI Galway) and Elva Johnston (University College Dublin).[1] Ó Cróinín's work had featured in the first edition.[2] Patrick Wormald also noted two "firsts" in English language scholarship in his review of that edition: Jonas's great life of Columbanus being given its first "sustained treatment" in the language (by Ian N. Wood) and a description of "the beginnings of hagiographical writing in Iceland".[2] The Irish Times has credited the journal with featuring the work of scholars who might elsewhere have been neglected.[3]
