The Irish Texts Society (Irish: Cumann na Scríbheann nGaedhilge) was founded in 1898 to promote the study of Irish literature. It is a text publication society, issuing annotated editions of texts in Irish with English translations and related commentaries.

As of 2009, the ITS has published sixty-three items in its main series and twenty items in its subsidiary series.[1] Other publications include Patrick S. Dinneen's Irish-English Dictionary and the Historical Dictionary of Irish Placenames (in progress).[2]

The Society holds an Annual Seminar at University College Cork.
