Storytelling with Máirín Mhic Lochlainn – Saturday 19th November at 2pm

The Shoot Room, Killruddery Farm Market

Coming from Connemara, Máirín Mhic Lochlainn has many stories about the sea, and she will take you on a trip to the bottom of the ocean with her story about The Little Mermaid, and she has her own version of the Grimm Brothers The Frog Prince, and she will take you on a voyage with the fairies in her story about The Magic Dance, and after that you never know where you might end up. Just let your imagination lead you on some magic voyage, like she used to do as a kid, when her father was telling herself and siblings stories by the fireside.


Both events are suitable for anyone over the age of 5 years old. 

Admission is free to both events and no booking is required
