Go mbeannaí Dia dhaoib

Can we compile a list of the folklore collections that have remained in the dialect? I was going through ones from Munster, and there's such good variety, but it seems a lot of the ones in Connemara was standardized (Peadar Ó Ceannabháin did Éamonn a' Búrc dirty, getting rid of metathesis and all). I was wondering which ones for Tír Chonaill wouldn't be standardized, as well as any others for anywhere else.

The list I have now is


* Seanachas Jimmí Chearra: Cois Fharraige

* Leabhar Sheáin Í Chonaill

* Leabhar Stiofáin Uí Ealaoire

* Seanchas ó Chairbre

* Seanchas Chléire (1940 edition)

I'm open to finding any others, if possible. So much possible good work out there to learn the dialect with, if only we can find out what it is.

Seanachas Amhlaoibh
Scéalaíocht Amhlaoibh
Seanachas Phádraig Í Chrualaoi

You could add things like Peig Sayer's Labharfad le Cách, which, while transcribed into semi-standardised Irish in the accompanying book, does have audio CDs, where you can hear the real thing.

So, unfortunately as I feared, they're all relating to Munster Irish. Such a shame that Munster has all the good dialectal writings!

There's nothing to fear that. It's to be celebrated. Leath Mhogha Nuat abú!
