A Chairde / Dear Friends.  You’ll find an Easter present from the Irish Traditional Music Archive at this link: 191 interactive music scores of fiddle music from the Cork-Kerry border region of Sliabh Luachra, which have been transcribed by ITMA staff from the unique fiddle tablature of the Kerry fiddle master Pádraig O’Keeffe (1887–1963). The original manuscripts from which the transcriptions come are also available in original facsimile here as they were donated to ITMA. You can use the interactive scores to play the melodies on your computer, read them from screen, or print them out using the attached PDF versions; for an introduction to our Interactive Scores facility click here.



  • Microsite: The first tranches of digitised music materials and information compiled and published by the great Co Limerick music and song collector Patrick Weston Joyce (1827–1914) are available on our PW Joyce Irish Music Microsite.
  • Late-Night Opening: ITMA will continue its late-opening every Thursday night until 8.00 pm.
  • Saturday Opening: Our next Saturday opening will be 26 April 2014, 10.00 am to 5.00 pm.
  • Social Media: You can follow ITMA on Twitter @ITMADublin as well as on Facebook.
  • On-Line Catalogue: Records are constantly being added and all are available here.
  • Recent Publications & Acquisitions: Our latest listings of recent publications and other acquisitions (all available for reference in ITMA) are here.

Best wishes,
