Folklore Workshop “Blackboard and Chalk Dust” The Schools Folklore Collection 1937 - 1938

There will be a display of photographs, material from copy books and an illustrated talk to showcase the Schools Folklore Collection from 1937 – 1938 from schools around County Kildare. In 1937, the Folklore Commission asked primary school teachers around the country to encourage their pupils to collect local history, weather lore, cures, riddles, proverbs, etc from older people and write it down. Not every school participated as it was a voluntary scheme.
