This article provides a survey of the Irish-language song tradition of Mid and North Tyrone during the period 1900-1950. It focuses on the work of a series of collectors and singers. Among the scholars who worked in that area were Fr. Conn Mac an Ghirr, Énrí Ó Muirgheasa (Henry Morris), Charlotte Milligan-Fox, Alice Milligan, Pilib Ó Bhaldraithe (Philip Waldron), and Prionsias Ó Conluain. The Muintir Luinigh Gaeltacht was home to two of the most well-known Irish singers of the early twentieth-century, namely, Éamonn Ó Treasaigh and his sister, Anna Ní Threasaigh.
