All of the material which he has collected, archived and re-presented on folklore.ie stems from localised field work which Michael Fortune has undertaken within communities and with individuals the length and breath of Ireland since the late 1990’s. His folklore.ie Facebook page is a big global hit.
The Fading Year is an Irish Folklore Blog founded by Nev Swift in October 2015.
The Fading Year explores and creates content relating to Irish Calendar Customs and Seasonal Folklore as practiced and observed in Ireland during the nineteenth century – although, for context and to explore the development of Irish Customs, Traditions and Beliefs material from before and after this period is sometimes referred to. Ensure you sign up for the newsletter which always appears just before a feast day.
