Personal Reflections on Canon Goodman's Collection

ITMA is delighted to present Drawing from the Well 2021 Episode 5, a video featuring Steve Cooney, Iarla Ó Lionáird and Odhrán Ó Casaide. The trio discuss, and reflect on the enduring legacy of the 19th century collector Canon James Goodman. James Goodman (1828−1896), a native of Dingle, Co. Kerry, canon of the Church of Ireland and Professor of Irish at Trinity College Dublin (TCD) compiled an exceptional 19th century music and song manuscript collection in the southwest of Ireland. 

The episode premiered online on 26 May 2021 and 'Personal Reflections on Canon Goodman's Collection' is now freely available to view on ITMA Facebook and ITMA YouTube channel.
