Library Council: Ask About Ireland Folklore Project

In 2012, in my capacity as a Lecturer in Irish Folklore at University College Dublin, I was commissioned to write a major guide to Irish Folklore for the Library Council of Ireland's website, AskAboutIreland.ie. 

The brief was to produce an accessible guide with a mix of historic and contemporary folklore, with a mix of Irish and international material; to conduct original, academic and archival research; to source images; and to edit the final product.
