4We made several important acquisi-tion in the past couple of months.One of these, a collection of tunespublished in 1809 by the piper John Murphy,is described in pages 18-19. Other purchases included a remarkable find, acollection of 100 Irish tunes entitled Gemsfrom the Emerald Isle, Including a Collectionof Ancient Irish Jigs, Country Dances &c.,published by Metzler & Co., London. This isundated, but we are informed by Dr NicholasCarolan that this publisher is listed as being inbusiness from 1842 to 1881. Nicholas alsoinforms us that no trace of this publication canbe found in any library. If that were not enough, tucked into the backof this book was a manuscript copy of “TheFox Chase”. Both book and manuscript willbe featured soon in An Píobaire. We can pro-vide facsimile copies of this collection, and ofthe Murphy collection, to members at a costof €10 each (+ P&P).With the assistance of Dr Ríonach Uí Ógáinof the National Folklore Collection, UCD weobtained a copy of Pat Ward’s music manu-script, which is available for study in ourArchive.Among other items, we also acquired a copyof Michael Conran’s National Music ofIreland (Dublin 1846), and a bound volume ofThe Citizen for 1841, containing HenryHudson’s monthly features on “The NativeMusic of Ireland”.Dave Hegarty has donated copies of severalrare Irish publications, including severalissues of An Lóchrann and a set of the song-books An Chóisir Cheoil.~ Donations & acquisitions ~Na Píobairí Uilleann has reciprocal arrange-ments with several other piping and musicalbodies to exchange publications.
