This map shows the geographical distribution of the 99 texts analysed in Gailey's papers (2010 & 2011) on Irish folk play texts. Some locations have more than one script.

Gailey divided up the list of plays into 19 geographical clusters, based on the similarity of their texts. These markers for the locations are colour-coded accordingly.
