Digitized volumes on Irish Folklore

Members of the Irish diaspora may be interested in a new sample selection of digitized volumes from the Main Manuscript Collection of the Irish National Folklore Collection.
Digitized by the dúchas.ie team the collection comprises 2,400 bound volumes of material collected since 1932. The majority was collected in the Gaeltacht (primarily Irish-speaking) region during the 1930s and includes every aspect of the Irish oral tradition. Read detail about the release at www.duchas.ie/pdf/18.11.01-pr-priomhbhailiuchanEN.pdf.
Other dúchas.ie content online includes the Schools Collection from the 1930 and the Photographic Collection.

Thanks to Ann Burns for the tip.
