Physical description
10,000 photographs
Arrangement: Like its manuscript and audio collections, the photographic collection is arranged according to the system of classification outlined by Seán Ó Súilleabháin in his A Handbook of Irish Folklore.
Leagan amach an bhailiúcháin: Dála na mbailiúchán lámhscríbhinne agus fuaime, tá an bailiúchán grianghraf cóirithe agus rangaithe de réir an córas atá leagtha amach ag Seán Ó Súilleabháin sa leabhar A Handbook of Irish Folklore.
Scope and content
The National Folklore Collection’s photographic collection consists of some 80,000 photographs, the majority of which were taken by members of the Irish Folklore Commission (1935-70) and its successors, including staff of the National Folklore Collection. The Commission’s ethnologist, Caoimhín Ó Danachair, who conducted field work throughout Ireland over many years, is responsible for a significant portion of the photographs presented here. Other Commission members, including its Director, Séamus Ó Duilearga, Michael J. Murphy, Leo Corduff, and many other field workers also captured important images of folklore informants and Irish folklife.
Cuimsiú agus Inneachar
Tá suas le 80,000 grianghraf i mbailiúchán Chnuasach Bhéaloideas Éireann, a bhformhór ó thréimhse Choimisiún Béaloideasa Éireann (1935-70) agus a comharba. Ba é Caoimhín Ó Danachair, eitneolaí an Choimisiúin, a ghlac go leor de na grianghraif agus é i mbun obair pháirce ar fud na hÉireann ar feadh roinnt mhaith blianta. I measc bhaill eile an Choimisiúin a ghlac grianghraif de lucht seanchais agus de chultúr ábhartha na tíre, áirítear Séamus Ó Duilearga, Michael J. Murphy, Leo Corduff agus a thuilleadh nach iad.
Scope and content
The images are preserved in a variety of film formats: positives and negatives (including some 6,000 nitrate negatives), both black & white and colour, ranging from 35mm to larger format film. The collection also contains a significant number of early glass plates and lantern slides alongside a large number of photographic prints, drawings and art works which have been photographed. The collection continues to grow through the activities of staff and supporters of the National Folklore Collection, and the contribution of valuable historic photographs by members of the public.
Scope and content
Is i bhfoirm scannán a mhaireann formhór na n-íomhánna – idir dhearbhchlónna agus chlaonchlónna (tuairim is 6,000 claonchló níotráite ina measc), dubh & bán agus daite, idir scannán 35mm agus formáidí níos mó. Anuas air sin, tá bailiúchán substaintiúil ann de chlaonchlónna plátghloine agus sleamhnáin ghloine laindéir, chomh maith le priontaí, líníochtaí agus saothair eile ealaíne. Tá an bailiúchán ag dul i méid i gcónaí, de thoradh obair pháirce fhoireann agus thacadóirí an Chnuasaigh agus de bharr bronntannas luachmhar de ghrianghraif stairiúla ón bpobal.

Scope and content
The process of digitizing and conserving the collection continues apace; some 10,000 images are presented here for the first time. They are arranged thematically in accordance with the subject headings in Seán Ó Súilleabháin’s A Handbook of Irish Folklore (1942). Themes include vernacular dwellings and other man-made features, livelihoods, crafts, commerce, transport, the sea, education, the practice of religion, food, dress, festivals and rites of passage, storytellers, musicians, pastimes and sport. Reference numbers of photographs are prefixed with a letter A-N indicating the general category of tradition assigned to them: A. Settlement and Dwelling B. Livelihood and Household Support C. Communication and Trade D. The Community E. The Person/Human Life F. Nature G. Folk Medicine H. Times and Feasts I. Popular Belief and Practice J. Mythological Tradition K. Historical Traditions L. Religious Tradition M. Oral Literature N. Sports and Pastimes
Cuimsiú agus Inneachar
Tá caomhnú agus digitiú an bhailiúcháin ar siúl i gcónaí; ag an bpointe seo tá tuairim is 10,000 íomhá á gcur ar fáil den chéad uair. Tá na híomhánna seo rangaithe de réir na dtéamaí agus na dteideal ábhair atá leagtha amach ag Seán Ó Súilleabháin ina leabhar A Handbook of Irish Folklore (1942).

Ownership/custody
The Irish Folklore Commission was the body responsible for the collection until 1971 when it was replaced by the Department of Irish Folklore and incorporated into University College Dublin. The Commission’s holdings are now part of the National Folklore Collection, which forms part of UCD Library.
Stair Coinneála
Coimisiún Béaloideasa Éireann a bhí freagrach as an mbailiúchán grianghraf go dtí 1971 nuair a bunaíodh Roinn Bhéaloideas Éireann agus tugadh saothar an Choimisiúin isteach faoi chúram na Coláiste Ollscoile, Baile Átha Cliath. Is cuid de Chnuasach Bhéaloideas Éireann é an t-ábhar ar fad a bhailigh an Coimisiún. Tá an Cnuasach á riaradh anois faoi chúram Leabharlann UCD.
