Personal profile

Research Interests

Tá céimeanna bainte amach ag Brian Ó Doibhlin ó Ollscoil na Banríona, Béal Feirste (BA Gailge agus Léann Ceilteach 2014), ó Ollscoil Uladh (MRes Gaeilge 2017), agus ó Ollscoil na hÉireann, Gaillimh (Dioplóma i Scileanna Aistriúcháin 2017). Is mac léinn dochtúireachta é atá sa tríú bliana dá chúrsa faoi láthair ag déanamh staidéir ar logainmneacha le Tionscadal Logainmneacha Thuaisceart Éireann in Ollscoil na Banríona, áit a bhfuil sé ag obair mar theagascóir ag leibhéal fochéime chomh maith.  Déanann sé taighde ar ainmneacha na mbailte fearainn ina cheantar dúchais féin (is é sin deisceart Dhoire agus tuaisceart Thír Eoghain, ceantar ar a dtugtar ‘Lár-Uladh’). Imríonn sé peil Ghaelach agus oibríonn sé go deonach mar bhall coiste dá chlub agus dá naíscoil áitiúil. Ó thaobh an taighde de, tá suim aige sna teangacha Ceilteacha, san ainmeolaíocht, san aistriúchán, agus sa Nua-Aois Luath in Éirinn.

Brian Ó Doibhlin is a graduate of Queen’s University Belfast (BA in Irish and Celtic Studies 2014), Ulster University (MRes in Irish 2017) and NUI Galway (Diploma in Translation Skills 2017). He is currently a third year PhD student researching with the Northern Ireland Place-Name Project based in QUB, where he is also a Teaching Assistant at undergraduate level. His current research relates primarily to uncovering the origin of townland-names within a certain geographical area (that being the area of South-Derry and North-Tyrone commonly referred to as 'Mid-Ulster'). In his spare time, he plays Gaelic football and volunteers as a committee member for his local GAA club and Irish-Medium nursery school. His research interests include Celtic languages, onomastics, translation, and the early-modern period in Ireland.
