Galway Civic Trust: Intimate evening of storytelling

As part of its Heritage Week programme Dúchas na Gaillimhe / Galway Civic Trust is hosting an intimate evening of storytelling in Áras na Gael with Galway storytellers Midie Corcoran and Máirín Mhic Lochlainn on Monday 20th August at 7.30pm.

Midie will tell of heroic tales of Fionn and the Fianna and his reading is particularly suitable for all age groups. This will be followed by  Máirín Mhic Lochlainn from Connemara whose tales of characters, saints, scholars and scoundrels have a been passed down to her through a local oral tradition.This promises to be a night of myth and merriment giving support to the old Irish adage ‘never let the truth get in the way of a good story’!

The event is just one of a range of free events being run by the Trust over Heritage Week (Aug 18th-26th). For details of other events visit www.galwaycivictrust.ie. Bookings can be made on booklings@galwaycivictrust.ie or on 091-564946.
