We are delighted to announce that the Irish English Network is to be recognised as a centre within the  European Federation of Associations and Centres of Irish Studies (EFACIS).  This recognition means increased visibility for research on Irish English; it ensures that the interests of researchers in Irish English are represented at a European level and it opens doors for transdisciplinary research. As part of the co-operation, members of the Irish English Network are entitled to join EFACIS for a reduced annual membership fee and so enjoy EFACIS benefits (cf.
