# Nursery Rhymes about Ireland

While there may not be as many Nursery Rhymes written about Ireland than England (London in particular), there are still many English language songs that originate in England or touch upon Irish themes. There are also lots of Irish language kids songs.

We are launching a new project - IOTI - which to collect rhymes and kids songs related to Ireland. This project will be a free and open store of both English and Irish language verse. Please note that this project is an independent initiative and has no relation to the 'Institutes of Technology, Ireland' (which can also be abbreviated to 'IOTI').

We are looking for help with this project, please reach out to us if you want to get involved.
