Each issue of the Yearbook has its own theme, includes an editor's introduction and index, and features cutting-edge, peer-reviewed articles, often based on papers given at meetings of the Celtic Studies Association of North America.
Contributors to this issue include: Mícheál Mac Craith, Catherine McKenna, Damian McManus, the late Máirtín Ó Briain, and Ruairí Ó hÚigínn. Topics include images of Utopia in bardic verse, late Ulster-cycle tales, Gaelic love poetry, and the art of the Welsh poetic anthology.
