The Irish Conference of Medievalists (ICM) was established in 1987 and has met yearly ever since. It is one of the longest running conferences of its type. Since the beginning, the ICM has had the purpose of showcasing the latest research in both Irish and international medieval studies. The ICM welcomes speakers from Ireland and abroad on all aspects of the Middle Ages.
The ICM has a well-established tradition of moving venue every few years. To date, it has been convened in Maynooth, Kilkenny, Limerick, Galway, Cork and Dublin. The 2016 and 2017 conferences were hosted by Maynooth University in association with St Patrick’s College Maynooth. The 2018 and 2019 ICM conferences were hosted by University College Cork.
