Irish Folklore can be taken as part of a BA Joint Honours degree (DN500). It can also be taken part time (DN501). Folklore is the study of the practices of everyday life, in the past and in the present. It is both old and new, and is as much concerned with the Internet and the experience of modern city life, as with traditional, rural communities. Folklore deals with life from the cradle to the grave. It explores people’s pastimes and festivals, their customs, stories and beliefs. The Chinese celebration of New Year in Ireland, for example, is of interest to the Irish folklorist today just as much as the traditional celebration of Halloween
