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. We are independently run and not associated with any organisation or institution.

A link to our recommended reading section for books not currently within the public domain can also be found here.

A link to recommended sites featuring digital resources of copyrighted material or generally useful websites that deal in the same vein as ourselves can be found here.

A link to our website policy, which includes our content policy, terms and conditions and privacy policy can also be found here.

A FAQ section is also available to answer any general enquiries you may have.

We wish to gauge interest in this service as we believe it could be a useful resource for those interested in Irish nationalism, history, folklore, etc. We have an official social media presence on Twitter 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 on our social media or use the contact form below:
