The International Council for Traditional Music (ICTM) is a UNESCO non-governmental organisation and one of the largest  organisations for the study of traditional music and dance in culture.  Its aims are "to further the study, practice, documentation,  preservation and dissemination of traditional music, including folk,  popular, classical and urban music, and dance of all countries."

The  Irish National Committee of ICTM is one of thirty-three National  Committees of ICTM. ICTM Ireland brings a local  focus to the activities of ICTM and provides a regional forum for  scholars of diverse musical traditions. This site serves as an information hub  for those interested in the study of music, song, dance and  ethnomusicology in Ireland.

Details for the Call for Papers for the ICTM Ireland 2018 Annual Conference are available here.

Details for the Call for Papers for Ethnomusicology Ireland (peer reviewed journal from ICTM Ireland) are available here.
