Description:
Although psychology has only recently become an independent field of study in Ireland, scholarship in the subject can be traced back to the early Christian era when philosophical studies flourished in Irish centres of learning (Brady, 1990; Brady & McLoone, 1992; Brock, 2012; McKenna, 1986). In Ireland, as in Britain and elsewhere, psychology was seen as a philosophical discipline for many years. The word psychology first appeared in the title of an Irish academic post in 1909 when a Chair of Logic and Psychology was instituted at University College Dublin (UCD) in the newly-founded National University of Ireland.
