The Schools' Collection: County Mayo schools


Bailiúchán na Scol, or The Schools’ Collection, is the result of a scheme initiated by the Irish Folklore Commission in collaboration with the Department of Education and the Irish National Teachers' Organisation. The scheme encouraged primary school children in the Irish Free State to collect and document folklore and local history. This collection contains chapters of material collected by County Mayo schools.
