I am very sad to have to inform you of the death today of Prof Donnchadh Ó
Corráin, our (retired) Professor of Irish History and founder of the CELT
repository of Irish and related texts (https://celt.ucc.ie/). He passed
away peacefully after a long illness.
Donnchadh was a strong proponent of using TEI/SGML (as it then was) in the
face of considerable opposition, and it is a tribute to his stature in his
discipline that he was able to pursue the project and demonstrate the value
of having rigorously-encoded texts available to the Celtic Studies community.
