The Mary McNeill Scholarship is available for well-qualified students enrolling in the one year MA in Irish Studies at the Queen’s University of Belfast in September 2019.

Moreover, the MA features an interdisciplinary core module on ‘Belfast: Place, Identity and Memory in a contested city’. Also, this offers a unique introduction to Irish Studies through the study of Belfast-Ireland’s second city and the capital of Northern Ireland since 1921-and its relationship to the rest of the island as well as the wider world.

Mary McNeill, author of ‘The life and times of Mary Ann McCracken’, and a leading figure in the Irish Association was a distinguished Irish historian. This scholarship is founded in her memory.

About Queen’s University
