Acmhainn Dhigiteach Gaeilge Uladh: Digitiú agus Foilsiú ar Chanúintí Beo
Ulster’s Digital Archive of Irish is a project which aims to digitise and make available to the members of the general public a corpus of Irish language recordings on the basis of collections of tapes collected in the 1960s and 1970s by the late Colmán Ó hUallacháin, among others. The resource features a database where the information is collected and categorised by location, informants, gender, age, professional groups, and various thematic categories.
Whilst a wide range of material has been collected containing native speakers of Ulster Irish, very little has been digitised or categorised and this project will ameliorate this. A body of this material is currently kept in the archives of the Folk Museum (NMNI) in Cultra, whilst other recordings are held by Comhaltas Uladh and by private individuals.
