Seamus Murphy Collection

This page contains audio recordings of lectures, talks, tours and interviews taken by Seamus Murphy, a long standing member of the Old Carlow Society/Carlow Historical and Archaeological Society. The Society wishes to express its thanks for making these recordings available.

Because of their age and the fact that these recordings were made on a portable cassette recorder listeners should be aware that the sound quality can be variable.
