Irish History Students' Association IHSA - Comhaltas na gCumann Staire CCS

The Irish History Students' Association is the national association for third level history students in Ireland. Organised on an all-island basis we have being promoting the study of history since the organisation was established in 1950.

Our annual conference sees the cream of Irish based students, and those interested in Irish history internationally, present papers to a well read audience of undergraduates, postgraduates, researchers, academics and many others with a love of history.


Our annual conference for 2022 is unfortunately impacted by restrictions to limit the spread of Covid19. The hosts TCD are very well organised and plan an outstanding two-day online summit of historuy talks, activities and workshops. The call for papers has now been issued; please spread the word.


If you are on facebook please come join our well established group here and follow our tweets on Twitter here.
