Local Studies Centre: Schools’ Collection Scheme

The Schools’ Folklore Scheme was undertaken by the Irish Folklore Commission for the collection of folklore in National Schools between 1937 and 1938. The original manuscripts are held by the Department of Irish Folklore, University College, Dublin. Filmed copies of the County Clare schools which participated are held at the Local Studies Centre, Ennis. A list of those schools can be viewed here, arranged by Parish or by Reel Number. All content is now available on the national Dúchas website.
