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.


The 2018 conference took place in the walled city of Derry/Londonderry and was a great success! We would like to offer a sincere go raibh maith agaibh, thankyou, to Krysta and Leanne for organinsing a well-run, speaker-rich and enjoyable conference. Roll-on our return to Luimneach for the 2019 conference on the first weekend of March when MIC will host.
