A project of the Royal Irish Academy Library
This digital archive of Irish dialect recordings made during 1928-31 comprises an important collection of early Irish language recordings of folktales, songs and other material. It includes recordings from many regions of Ireland where traditional Irish dialects have disappeared since the time the recordings were made.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
This digital archive is a project of the Royal Irish Academy Library in collaboration with the Digital Humanities Observatory. The project is funded by the Higher Education Authority (PRTLI Cycle 4). The archive consists of digitized versions of recordings made originally on shellac records in the period 1928-31, and has been supplemented by transcriptions and translations of the recordings, information on the people recorded, and other related content.
