The programme for the 1913 Carlow Feis is now available on the Irish Traditional Music Archive website. Containing not only the Feis programme and participants, the booklet also has a large number of advertisements for local businesses and interesting articles of historical value. Of particular interest is Marlborough Clarke Douglas’s seminal article on the Topography of Carlow as well as a the text of a letter from John Hooker to his employer Sir Peter Carew dated 1568; and articles on the Standing Stone of Ireland and Irish Pipers.
