Clar Amhran Mhaigh Cuilinn

By Ciarán Ó Con Cheanainn

The rich repository of song in Irish in the National Folklore Collection is represented in this book of song from the barony of Maigh Cuilinn, Co. Galway. This book introduces the reader to over 450 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 are some well-known names in folklore collecting, including Ciaran Bairead, Proinsias de Burca, Seamus Ennis, Calum Mac Gill-Eathain, and Brian Mac Lochlainn. Author Ciaran O Con Cheanainn 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. THIS BOOK IS IN GAELIC LANGUAGE ONLY.
