(Scribhinni Bealoidis / Folklore Studies)

The rich repository of song in Irish in the National Folklore Collection is represented in this publication of song from the barony of Maigh Cuilinn, Co. Galway.

The book introduces the reader to over four hundred and fifty titles, excluding variants and versions of songs. The songs were collected for the most part by full-time, part-time and other collectors with the Irish Folklore Commission, the forerunner to the National Folklore Collection, UCD.

Among the collectors some well-known names in folklore collecting appear including Ciarán Bairéad, Proinsias de Búrca, Séamus Ennis, Calum Mac Gill-Eathain and Brian Mac Lochlainn.

The author has compiled a catalogue of songs in the manuscript material of the National Folklore Collection. The songs embrace all aspects of life - love, sorrow, praise, religion, politics and the comic.

Indices include titles, first lines, proper names, singers, collectors, authors and locations in relation to the songs, the singers and the collectors.
