Scope and Content

The material in this collection relates to the work of three members of the Bairéad family, Stiophán Bairéad (1867-1921), his daughter Síghle Bairéad (1903-1985), and his son Ciarán Bairéad (1905-1976). Stiophán Bairéad was first treasurer of the Gaelic League and his papers cover some of this work. His daughter Síghle researched her father's life, and material from her research is also available. His son Ciarán did a lot of work for the Irish Folklore Commission and the National Museum of Ireland in the 1950s and 1960s in County Galway, and much of his correspondence in relation to this survives in the collection.
