The Irish language continues to form an integral part of Irish cultural life as a medium for education, music, literature, drama and television. The language has been spoken for over 2,000 years and boasts a vast early literature of world significance. The emphasis at Queen's is on modern Irish language and literature as essential elements of contemporary Irish culture and society. Insight into the country's earlier heritage is developed through the study of mythology, poetry, saga and folklore.
