Maddock Research Fellowships
In a spirit of optimism for the future, we have awarded 9 Maddock Research Fellowships.
The continuing generosity of Niamh and Philip Maddock of Providence, Rhode Island, USA has enabled us to elect the following scholars to paid research fellowships at Marsh’s Library for 2021.
Scholars will only be able to travel when it is safe so to do. Fellowships may be held over to 2022 should it not be possible for scholars to travel this year according to the health advice of the Irish government.
