Subject: Tyrone Regional Style?
Hello IRTRAD. Many regional styles, even if rapidly disappearing, are well
known and have ample material online and otherwise to study. Clare, Sliabh
Luachra, Donegal, Belfast, etc.
My interest in County Tyrone. I would guess that any regional style from
this area would be similar to Donegal. However, in studying further, I see
that the Donegal style is nothing that can be pinned down completely. I've
seen the County being described as so large that the style actually has many
sub-strata, further regional differences, and so on.
If you have any information at all regarding anything resembling a regional
style from County Tyrone, or Donegal in regards to its influence on Tyrone,
please advise, thanks in advance.
