Irish Music

A guide to Irish music resources in the Hesburgh Library and online.


The Hesburgh Library's Irish Music collections include Special Collections such as the Francis O'Neill Collection and the Irish Ballad Collection, a substantial collection of music CDs and print in the Music Collections, online subscriptions, and microform.

While this guide is organized to help students at Notre Dame to make the best use possible of the collections here, and the resources available online, it also includes information on significant collections in other libraries and archives.

For assistance with Irish music research, please contact either the Music Librarian, Robert Simon, or the Irish Studies Librarian, Aedín Clements.
