Cultural Tent

The Cultural Tent had a fitting poster made for me and for The Seanchai, the former included a photograph of me and the latter one of Eammon Kelly. These are shown on the right. I am quite flattered to be considered in the same breath as Eammon Kelly. He was, in my opinion, the greatest Irish storyteller of the 20th Century.

The festival asked me to tell an Irish legend. And so I did. I told one of the stories of Finn McCool, this one entitled The Legend of Knockmany. It’s one of my favorites from the Fenian Cycle.
