The Stephen Grier Manuscripts

Stephen Grier (c.1824–1894), a native of north Longford, moved to Newpark, Bohey, Gortletteragh, in south Leitrim in 1852. An uilleann piper and fiddle player, he compiled a collection of over 1,000 melodies, transcribed mainly in the 1880s.

“This book was written by Mr. Stephen Grier, Newpark, County of Leitrim, and Parish of Gortletteragh, dated 25th May, 1883”
