The Folk Music Society of Ireland was founded in Dublin in 1971 by a group of interested individuals with the aims of encouraging interest and promoting research in the traditional music, song and dance of Ireland. To this end it organised a regular programme of public lectures, recitals and seminars. By 2003 the Society felt that FMSI had largely fulfilled its initial intentions, and it decided to bring its main activities to an end. It does however continue to act in its publishing capacity. This archival site is being preserved for its historical interest. It is being kept updated by the addition of digitised material and PDF downloads on its new website.
