This collection of almost 300 oral transcripts and accompanying notes provides an invaluable insight of a threatened tradition of the people of South-East Ulster, and also of the zealous commitment of the individual collectors who preserved what can now be identified as the remnants of an unique Gaelic song tradition despite the pressures of Anglicisation over three hundred years that the area and its last native tradition bearers faced up to the beginning of the 20th century. In illustrating the rich and extensive Irish language heritage of South-East Ulster, this collection also gives an encyclopaedic and uncensored account of the history of this area as told by the people themselves through their own means – The Gaelic Song Tradition.
