Some great news for the Cork Folklore Project and UCC

We are thrilled to announce that the Cork Folklore Project has been announced a finalist in the National Lottery Good Causes Awards. We have been selected from across the country as a finalist in the Heritage Section and will go forward this week, for adjudication in the National Final.  


This is great recognition for our work at the Cork Folklore Project over the last twenty-five years and in particular the dedication of people like Dr Cliona O’Carroll (Research Director), Mary O'Driscoll (former Manager), Dr. Marie-Annick Desplanques (Research Director, 1996-2010), Prof. Gearóíd Ó Crualaoich, Jamie Furey, Dr Stiofán Ó'Cadhla, Bláthnaid Begly and Dr Ciarán Ó Gealbháin in the Department of Folklore, UCC, as well as our collectors, researchers and most importantly our interviewees over many years.
