Joyce Collection
Joyce P.W. b.1827

P.W. Joyce was a distinguished collector of traditional Irish music and songs of which  he published four collections. He said, ‘my home in Glenosheen was a home of music and song; they were in the air of the valley, you heard them everywhere- sung, played, whistled and they were mixed up with the people’s past times,  occupations and daily life.’
