Nicole is an Irish Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Irish and Celtic Languages. Her research focuses on the Félire Óengusso (‘Martyrology or Calendar of Óengus’), an Old Irish text commemorating the saints. This unique martyrology, which was composed in verse in the early ninth century, was copied over a period of more than eight hundred years, but is largely preserved in late medieval and early modern manuscripts.
The project includes a new critical edition of the text as well as a comprehensive study of the transmission and reception of the text during this period through an examination of the individual manuscript witnesses. Nicole previously held the De Finibus Postgraduate Scholarship at University College Cork and an O'Donovan Scholarship at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies.
