Abigail Keaney, a sophomore studying political science and global affairs, is assisting Professor Brian Ó Conchubhair in his work on Irish language and literature. She will support his research involving the linguistic and cultural politics of Northern Ireland, specifically the challenges to potential reunification, conflict resolution and the conception of a post-Brexit Northern Ireland.

In the summer of 2021, Keaney was part of a research team working with the Notre Dame Dublin Global Gateway to research and produce a report on the post-pandemic city, using Dublin as a specific case study. Keaney is especially interested in the role and politicization of minority languages in the United Kingdom and Ireland and looks forward to learning more about this complex yet salient topic.
