Welcome to An Chartlann. The purpose of this website is to serve as an archive of writings in the public domain primarily on Irish nationalism, history, folklore, mythology, and other topics. The goal is to provide access to Irish writings in an easily accessible, free, and clear format, all in a centralized location rather than being scattered across various websites, libraries, etc. often difficult to access or behind paywalls. We endeavour to provide our readers with text-in-site and .pdf formats of all material. A link to our recommended reading section for books not currently within the public domain can also be found here. We are independently run and not associated with any organisation, company, or movement.
We wish to gauge interest in this service as we believe it could be a useful source for those interested in Irish nationalism, history, folklore, etc. We have an official social media presence on Twitter, Telegram and Instagram as a means of providing updates on newly published works and maintaining contact with our users.
As this is an ongoing project, we also kindly ask for and appreciate all feedback regarding the website; whether it is website design, formatting errors, typographical errors etc. You can contact us via any of our social media links or use the contact form below:
