On the eve of the Second World War in Europe, the senior pupils in the National Schools of the Republic of Ireland were engaged in an important, if somewhat unusual task.

The Schools Scheme of 1937-38, was a collaboration between the Folklore Commission and the National Teachers Organisation, which used the students to gather a huge body of traditional knowledge from folktales and legends, to songs and poems, and extends to lore on work practices of every kind, customs and beliefs, trades and crafts.
