Páipéir Ghiolla Criost Uí Bhroin / Papers of Giolla Criost Ó Broin

Description (dcterms:description)

Baineann an tsraith seo le páipéir Ghiolla Chríost Uí Bhroin. Christopher a tugadh air nuair a rugadh é, ach thug sé an t-ainm Giolla Chríost air féin nuair a chuaigh sé isteach i gConradh na Gaeilge in 1893/94. Fuair sé post le CnaG in 1908 mar eagraí don Mhí, an Iarmhí, an Cabhán agus Longfort; bhí sé páirteach i gcomórtais amhránaíochta, damhsa agus drámaíochta an Oireachtais agus d’eagraigh sé go leor féilte agus ceolchoirmeacha. Bhí sé ina rúnaí ar Choiste Ceantair Bhaile Átha Cliath an Chonartha sna 1920í, ina mhúinteoir san Ard-Chraobh ó na 1920í go dtí na 1950í agus ina uachtarán ar an Oireachtas in 1958. Stóráladh a chuid páipéar i gcás leathair a raibh ceannlitreacha a ainm greanta air agus is é a bhí ann go príomha ná lámhscríbhinní agus scríbhinní clóscríofa, a n-áirítear leis roinnt dá chuid drámaí féin mar aon le nodaireacht cheoil.
