Marjorie Courtney Collection

One of the most interesting acquisitions by the library is a bequest by Marjorie Courtney - an independent agent of performers in Dublin. Details and documentary evidence of agents are particularly rare within Ireland’s music scene making this collection of particular importance. Courtney’s clients included the Irish Festival Singers and Kitty O’Callaghan, the well-known Dublin accompanist. The collection includes a substantial amount of tour ephemera from the Irish Festival Singers tour of America in 1954 and 1955. Some examples of the contents include: programmes, newspaper clippings, memorabilia, scores, correspondence, photographs and handwritten notes.

This collection is unavailable for research while it is being processed.
