I'm looking for choral (SATB) arrangements of traditional Irish songs about places in Ireland and/or with place names in the title. Any recommendations for sources or contacts?

What does SATB mean ?

There is no tradition of choral or ensemble singing in Irish folksong.

Aran, I have heard many choirs and musical societys singing folk song which include placenames, -The next market day- being one of many, the Dublin Choral Society and St Marys Choral Society have included many folk songs in their repertoire.

Maybe ard mhacha, but it's not traditional in traditional Irish folksong, like the English tradition is unaccompanied singing, but nowadays its mostly done to a guitar.

It may not be "traditional" - but it's been around and popular for about a hundred years, anyway! Good music shops in Ireland will have plenty for shcool and other choirs. Not sure of online sources.

Regards

Click here for one option - even if several of the titles are not Irish, even by the usual global generosity to the genre!

Martin ,Ihave heard at many a Feis, school choirs unaccompanied singing in Irish, Scottish Gaelic and English, folk songs such as An Chouifhinn.
