News from Béal Beo

Welcome to Béal Beo

The Béal Beo website went live in December 2011, featuring early wax cylinder recofdings of the National Folklore Collection. A range of other audio digitization projects is being undertaken. They include the James G. Delaney collection of midland storytellers (1965-1983), and some 500 hours of recordings from the Urban Folklore Project, a collecting project in the Dublin area dating from 1979-80. The extensive collection of songs and music assembled by the late Tom Munnelly is currently being digitized. Selections from these and other collections will be made available on this site as resources permit.
