The role of ITMA is to make a comprehensive collection of materials for the appreciation and study of Irish traditional music, song and dance.


The week long programme introduces students to what goes on behind the scenes in ITMA: cataloguing, sorting, scanning, as well as an introduction to the studio & recording.

And of course if you are a musician, we will record a few tunes for posterity and add these to the archive collection.

If you are interested in spending a week in ITMA as part of your TY work experience, please contact Róisín Ní Bhriain ( for further information. We must advise you that places are limited so please apply early.
