Góilín Song Project

An online microsite presenting the singers and the songs, in English and Irish, of the Góilín Club, a Dublin traditional singing institution that has been meeting socially in a variety of venues in the capital since 1979. Some 700 audio recordings made at the Góilín since the early 1980s can be heard here, supplemented with photographs, printed items, singer profiles and video interviews. This is an ongoing collaborative project of the Góilín and ITMA.

This latest ITMA resource adds to the local song material of its initial Inishowen Song Project microsite and its Shamrock, Rose & Thistle collection, to the historic song material contained in its PW Joyce Irish Music Microsite, and to the wide variety of other songs which are to be found in its Online Collections. Combined, these offer a wealth of Irish traditional song to singers, listeners, and students.
