Welcome to Estudios Irlandeses, the scholarly journal of AEDEI, the Spanish Association for Irish Studies.

I am happy to launch the latest issue, which gathers a wide range of original work by well-established academics as well as by junior scholars based in different parts of the world.

As my prolonged term as editor of Estudios Irlandeses ends I wish to thank the board and members of AEDEI for having entrusted me with the editorship in 2004, and for their continuing support throughout these years. My deepest gratitude to the twelve dozen authors who over this period have shared their research by contributing original texts, to the referees for their continued cooperation supplying valuable feedback and advice to authors and to the reviewers for their appraisal and insightful comments on the previous year’s output of Irish-related material in different areas.

Special recognition must go to the colleagues who over the years have been in charge of the reviews sections: José Francisco Fernández, Inés Praga and Constanza del Río (Irish Studies in Spain), David Pierce and Patricia Lynch (Irish Literature Publications),Tony Tracy and Roddy Flynn (Irish Cinema and TV), and Ruth Barton (Irish Film and Media Studies Publications). It has been a privilege and a great pleasure to work with you.

As Issue 11 sees the light, we can say that the journal has fulfilled its mandate to be an international forum for original research in the field of Irish Studies, and to make cutting-edge scholarship freely available to the broadest possible audience. The inclusion of Estudios Irlandeses in a large number of prestigious international directories and databases is a most welcome reward.

The voluminous current issue features

  • 20 research essays – five of which devoted to late poet and Nobel Prize-winner Seamus Heaney,
  • two compelling opinion pieces on issues of ongoing debate by poet Mary O’Malley,
  • the four regular sections of reviews of Irish-related bibliography and filmography generated worldwide in the previous year.

It is now time to welcome the next editor José Francisco Fernández and the new editorial team, wishing them every success and Estudios Irlandeses a long and productive life.
