Research on monuments in Ireland
I am currently conducting research on a variety of issues surounding Irish traditional music within Ireland and its relationship with place and society. With this in mind I am investigating methods of memory relating to Irish traditional music. At the moment I am attempting to catalogue monuments and statues to Irish traditional musicians throughout Ireland and examine who organised their construction and what these monuments mean to the local communities.
I would appreciate members of the session could inform me of such memorials, no matter how small, to musicians in their local area or of memorials that they know about.
A discussion might grow out of this relating to how appropriate these statues are, what other connotations these statues possess and perhaps lay a question as to why certain musicians have been forgotten about in their native areas.
I would appreciate if any details of monuments could be emailed to email@example.com.
