Online Collections

ITMA holds a considerable amount of older material which is out of copyright, and it has reached agreement with some copyright holders to make use of material which they own.

Materials are made available on for the enjoyment and interest of users under the provisions of Irish copyright law. They may be shared with others on the same basis. In any non-commercial use  of materials, the source must be identified as ‘Courtesy of the Irish Traditional Music Archive’ or ‘Le Dea-Mhéin Taisce Cheol Dúchais Éireann’. You may not manipulate or modify the materials supplied, or use them for any commercial purpose.

Most of the items in the ITMA’s collections are in the copyright of others – performers, composers and other creators, publishers and broadcasters, etc. – and cannot therefore be made available in this way. The complete range of materials held by the ITMA can only be fully accessed by visitors to the Archive’s premises, on a reference basis.
