In May 2013, while she was still a lecturer at the University of Cambridge, Dr Elizabeth Boyle received a BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grant from the British Academy, and a H. M. Chadwick Grant from the University of Cambridge, to fund a project to prepare a comprehensive, introductory guide to the Church in early medieval Ireland (c. 400 - c. 1150). The funding was used to facilitate two project meetings: the first took place in Dublin (at the School of Celtic Studies, Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies) in October 2013; the second took place at the University of Cambridge in August 2014. Chapters for the book are currently in final stages of preparation, before being submitted to a publisher for consideration. More details to follow in due course.
