Abstract: Since 1940 I have had a keen interest in the history of fish, fishing and fisheries in Ireland and in my capacity as an inspector of fisheries I had an unrivalled opportunity, in my travels around the country, to acquire information on fishing methods, which were becoming, or even had became obsolete. For example, when I was preparing my second paper on the Galway Fishery (No. 6 on list below) I made inquiries at the National Museum, Dublin as to what Irish fishing spears were preserved in that museum. I was surprised to learn that very little material of this kind was available, although I knew that “hoards” of salmon spears, seized by the Boards of Fishery Conservators, were kept in various parts of Ireland. Fortunately I was able to have these, and other spears, mainly for eels, collected up and deposited in the National Museum, which can now claim to have a good representative collection of Irish traditional fishing spears for salmon and eels. My paper on Irish fishing spears (No. 29 on list below) resulted from the collection of the fishing spears referred to above. Articles in newspapers and other popular journals have generally been omitted from the list below, because they were usually based on information given in contributions to the journals etc. of learned and other societies. This list also does not include details of papers on the scientific aspects of Irish fisheries, details of which have already been published in Fishery Leaflet No. 25.
