Posting as JTT, but I'll go in and sign in as Thompson as soon as it's posted so people can send me messages if they wish.

I've just come across a letter to Thomas MacDonagh from GH Abraham of the Irish Folk Song Society, Old Trafford, written on 29 November 1910, and asking for a tune and any background to the Tipperary song MacDonagh had published in The Nation of 19 November.

Is this Irish Folk Song Society still extant (unlikely, I know), and if so, do they still have records that might include the correspondence?
