Irish broadside ballads

Finding Aid


A collection of 559 broadsides, most measuring 28 x 11 ½ cm. Broadsides were printed and sold in streets and at fairs and markets from the early days of printing, often by ballad singers. These broadsides were mostly printed in Dublin, probably between 1860 and 1876, by the printer P. Brereton.
