Traid Éireann project commences to research the challenges and opportunities for traditional arts practitioners

Following a competitive tendering process, Trad Ireland / Traid Éireann has appointed Jack Talty to compile a research report examining the challenges, opportunities and supports currently available to traditional arts practitioners in Ireland. This research project was awarded funding from the Arts Council Traditional Arts Project Award 2019.


The aim of the project is to examine in detail the opportunities and challenges

faced by traditional arts practitioners in Ireland, and will culminate in evidence-based recommendations relating to professional development for traditional artists, and audience engagement.


Trad Ireland / Traid Éireann is a newly-established entity, founded by Oisín Mac

Diarmada and Tristan Rosenstock, to promote the traditional arts throughout the

island of Ireland and to support practitioners through advocacy and professional

development opportunities.


Jack Talty is a well-known traditional musician, composer and producer from County Clare. He is co-founder of Énsemble Ériú and director of Raelach Records. In 2013 Talty was awarded the Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Award by the Irish Research Council for ongoing PhD research at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance.
