established in 1990 to further the study and research of Celtic
languages and cultures in Finland and welcomes everyone interested
in the topic. Celtic studies is understood broadly to include also
the history and modern culture of countries where Celtic languages
are spoken (Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Bretagne etc.)

Federation of Finnish Learned Societies.
SFKS arranges lectures, meetings and seminars and publishes papers
presented on these and other fora. In annual spring and autumn seminars
held around the festivals of Bealtaine and Samhain shorter, popular
