The Irish are renowned storytellers and Halloween is our time to shine!

The storytelling tradition in Ireland goes back to ancient times, when the Seanchaí – Irish storytellers – were the definition of entertainment, holding the key to all of Irish folklore, myth, and legend. 

The tradition survives strong today, from the lore surrounding the Blarney Stone to storytelling festivals, to everyday conversation.
