TitleSeoighe, Papers of Tadhg,
DescriptionThe papers are divided into two sections, the first and most comprehensive section relate to the life and work of Tadhg Seoige, the second contains material relating to the Joyce farm in Renmore in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It is only very disparate material, and there was no original order discernable. In relation to the first section of these papers, they are subdivided further into two sections, covering his personal affairs, and his literary work. Material relating to Tadhg Seoige's personal affairs include some material from his time as a member of the Royal Irish Constabulary, his work as land agent for the Guinness family and later the Congested Districts Board on the Aran Islands until the late twenties, and his financial arrangements.

The section on his literary work is divided into five parts, and reflects Tadhg's literary output from draft works to finished articles, books and translated plays. The correspondence, particularly in relation to his book Scéaltaí Cois Teallaigh with the Book Committee of the Department of Education, is instructive of the efforts of the Department to get works in Irish into the bookshops and schools of the country. The correspondence also reflects the close-knot community of editors and free-lance writers in Irish that existed in the 1920s and 1930s, and their efforts to keep the Irish language newspapers running.
