Schools' Collection : County Kilkenny schools

Bailiúchán na Scol : Scoileanna Contae Cill Chainnigh

Bailiúchán na Scol : Scoileanna Contae Cill Chainnigh

Abstract: 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 Kilkenny schools.

Each chapter contains a collection of stories from an individual school (or a particular class within a school). Each chapter has a title page giving the name of the school, the parish, the barony, the county and the teacher.
