Nollaig Shona Daoibh

The Ulster Heritage Project would like to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas. The past year has seen many remarkable successes as more and more families recover their family history by using DNA testing and we are looking forward to many more successes in the year to come.

Nollaig Shona daoibh agus Nollaig Chridheil chuig ár gcaraide in Albain.

The Doegen Records Web Project

A project of the Royal Irish Academy Library

The digital archive of Irish dialect recordings made during 1928-31 can now be accessed online. The collection contains early Irish language recordings of folktales, songs and other material. It includes recordings from many regions of Ireland where traditional Irish dialects have disappeared since the time the recordings were made. The recordings are organised by counties so one can hear Gaelic spoken by native speakers from most of the nine counties of Ulster. Of particular interest to Ulster folk are recording of native speakers from Cavan, Armagh, and Antrim.
