Aran born fiddler and researcher, Deirdre Ní Chonghaile has launched a blog on the songs of Aran. The blog follows her progress on a project based at NUI Galway. The aim of this bilingual project is to publish an edition of songs composed in Aran. Supported by accompanying CDs/MP3s and by a partner website, this will enable the people of Aran to have access to these endangered songs, to preserve them, and to present them to communities beyond Aran. The blog has some fascinating stories and some historic photographs to accompany the text.
