“The Corpus of Electronic Texts (CELT) aims to produce an online database of historical and literary texts in the languages of Ireland past and present. Where copyright permits the texts can be searched, read on-screen, downloaded for later use, or printed out. The CELT project grew out of the joint involvement of the Department of History and the Computer Centre in a number of related text projects over many years.”

The texts are available in SGML, HTML, and as plain text. Many texts are now available, in translation, and in original English, French, Irish and Latin.
