The National Folklore Collection, housed in UCD is one of the most comprehensive and valuable in the world. Recently inscribed to the UNESCO Memory of the World register, the collection is internationally respected.

Whilst much of what has been collected has disappeared from view in modern Ireland, its resonance still rings true. To share their knowledge and the gems in the collection the staff have set up a podcast, Blúiríní Béaloidis and we are honoured to share it with you.The podcast covers a huge variety of topics from the moon in folk tradition, fairy forts and tales of Cú Chulainn.

 First up is What is Folklore? In which Claire and Jonny introduce the topic and its relevance.
