Jim,

I suppose I consider each work on a case-by-case basis, maybe not even using the same criteria each time.

Yes, the more I explore Irish literature and music, the more I get a sense of works which would be described as "oirish."

I'm familiar with Douglas Hyde, and I'm pretty sure I've come across Jeremiah Curtin, too, but I don't think I knew of those others. I'll note them down.

Sounds like you had some great experiences. I wish I had access to talented storytellers such as you describe.

I'm guessing Limerick University will be happy to accept your collection.

I'm very interested in those Irish tales. I'll PM you with my email address momentarily.
