I have some of the stories on my blog now http://ancroiait.wordpress.com/category/scealta-chois-cladaigh/
It looks like the tapes were recorded badly and were all messed up. I’ll keep trying from other universities here and see can I get a decent one. Does anyone know how to de-scramble tapes? As a last resort I was thinking of writing to Máirtín Tom Sheáinín and sending him a copy of the book and asking him to read them and record them (maybe a story a day on RnaG) and then releasing them in mp3 form.
What kills me is that there seems to have been years of recording but no one knows where there are and I get no answers to emails from UCD. It is frustrating.
