Singers & Songs

The history of the ITSC goes back to the 1980s and a local Buncrana school teacher originally from Gaoth Dobhair, Jimmy McBride. Jimmy along with Jim MacFarland and Colm Toland increasingly recognised the rich quality of the English language song tradition still alive among families and older singers in the Peninsula.

The new Inishowen Song Project

We are currently fundraising and exploring funding options to finance the redesign and development of a new Inishowen Song Project website. The new site will feature existing material, new audio-visual recordings, including recordings from the Inishowen Singing Weekend, updated information on songs and singers and a digital map. If you are interested in supporting our fundraising for the revamp of the Inishowen Song Project, please contact ITSC or kindly make a donation here.
