Classical Association in Northern Ireland Newsletter
Our aim is to promote Ancient History and Classical Studies and to support education in these subjects throughout Northern Ireland.
The Association in Northern Ireland was relaunched at the culmination of the 2014 Summer School organised by the Classical Association of Ireland.
Based in Belfast, we are a branch of The Classical Association of Ireland.
“Never, with dogs on guard, need you fear a midnight thief at your stalls ”
(Virgil, Georgics III, 404ff)
We are dedicated to supporting Ancient History and the Classics so our emblem is the representation of a stylized hound signifying guardianship.The dog was a popular subject for mosaics on the entrance floors of Roman homes and a recurring graphic motif in early Irish Latin manuscripts. Narratives featuring hounds were frequently incorporated into the earliest oral and written traditions of Northern Ireland.
