Product Overview

Treasures of the National Folklore Collection/Seoda as Cnuasach Bhealoideas Eireann is primarily a visual feast, drawing on the diverse collections found within the archive. The book consists of 16 essays, with a Foreword by Dr. T.K. Whitaker, and includes illustrations, paintings, photographs, manuscripts, music transcriptions, and books. It provides an opportunity to re-visit and reflect on the work carried out by one of the most innovative cultural government-funded bodies in Western Europe during the first half of the 20th century, in a time of acute economic need. The essays are in English, Irish, and Scots Gaelic, and each contributor has written about a particular aspect of the National Folklore Collection's holdings, such as the photographic collection, the paintings, or the sound archive for example. The book is published by Comhairle Bhealoideas Eireann/The Folklore of Ireland Council, as part of the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Irish Folklore Commission.
