21 November| Museum of Irish Literature

'Binneas an tSiansa' was successfully launched last Thursday 21 November at MoLI by Professor Gary West of the University of Edinburgh. 

The collection was published in honour of Ríonach uí Ógáin, professor emeritus of Irish Folklore and former director of the National Folklore Collection, upon her retirement.

About the Book:

The book engages with themes that have characterized her substantial contribution to scholarship both nationally and internationally, exploring topics such as the historical connections between traditional archives in Ireland, Scotland and the Nordic countries, folklore and folklore collecting, Irish folk tradition and ethnology, traditional music and song, and Irish manuscripts and poetry as rich sources of Irish tradition.
