The Leitrim Larks Project

Leitrim has a rich and varied tradition of song which has been passed down through generations. While some of these songs remain well known, many are no longer performed and survive in manuscripts and archives. 

The Leitrim Larks Project is being led by renowned traditional singer Fionnuala Maxwell and aims to celebrate, rediscover, and revive traditional songs from Leitrim by engaging both established singers across the County and by engaging and facilitating individual members of the public from across the County to discover and sing these Leitrim songs.

If you are interested in taking part in this traditional singing project please contact the Heritage Officer: Sarah Malone, Email: smalone@leitrimcoco.ie, Tel: 071 9620005 Ext. 516
