Trying to locate name of irish songbook

Conas taoi,


I'm trying to find the name of a book of Irish songs we had in the gaeltacht years ago. I got a pdf of the scanned contents off one of the directors, so I have a list of songs and lyrics to search for. Unfortunately the physical copies were all fairly battered by the time they were scanned, so there were no front covers left and no name or author.



Anyone know how about I could go about getting more info?

Roughly what sizes were the pages?
Oh, and maybe give some well-known song titles and the page numbers they appear on. That should help jog a few memories.

Sure! So this is what I have currently https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...it?usp=sharing

I'm not sure if this is the original order, or if there were a few extras thrown in, but the majority of the songs here are from the specific book I'm trying to find

As for size, it reminded me of the old Leaving Cert maths tables book, roughly the size of a small novel

Good thinking! I couldn't work anything out from the blurbs on the webshop but I sent them an email to see if it jogs any memories
