It brings the wealth of Irish literary and historical culture to you on the Internet, for the use and benefit of everyone worldwide. It has a searchable online textbase consisting of over 18 million words, in over 1,000 contemporary and historical documents from many areas, including literature and the other arts.

Founded with philanthropic and public monies by Prof. Donnchadh Ó Corrain (School of History), CELT has been directed by Dr Hiram Morgan since 2008.  Beatrix Faerber is manager and chief researcher.
