About the Classical Association in Northern Ireland

The mission of the Classical Association in Northern Ireland centres on the advancement of Ancient History and Classical Studies, nurturing educational pursuits across Northern Ireland. The Association in Northern Ireland regained momentum during the conclusion of the 2014 Summer School, orchestrated by the Classical Association of Ireland.

Situated in Belfast, this branch operates under the umbrella of The Classical Association of Ireland. Their unwavering commitment to fostering Ancient History and the Classics is symbolized by an emblem—a stylized hound, emblematic of guardianship. The hound’s prominence in mosaic artworks adorning the entrances of Roman residences and its recurrent presence in early Irish Latin manuscripts underscores their dedication. The narratives interweaving hounds are a recurring motif in Northern Ireland’s earliest oral and written traditions.
