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.
Founded by Queen Victoria, the Queen’s University in Ireland, was designed to be a non-denominational alternative to Trinity College Dublin which was controlled by the Anglican Church.
Furthermore, the University was made up of three Queen’s Colleges – in Cork, Galway and Belfast. Although it was the first University in the north of Ireland, Queen’s drew on a tradition of learning which goes back to 1810 and the foundation of the Belfast Academical Institution.
