Londubh an Chairn, a collection of Irish traditional songs (mostly from the Déise area), was first published in 1927 by Oxford University Press for the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust. This article revisits the controversy that arose from Senator Dónal J. O'Sullivan's initial review of the work and from the subsequent correspondence between one of the book's editors and O'Sullivan, which appeared between 19 November and 3 December 1927 in the columns of The Irish Statesman. Now largely forgotten, the case was something of a cause célèbre at the time: there followed a lengthy and protracted court case which found in favour of neither party.
