Candlelit Tales

We're 6years old... And we usually gather in groups and retell the first ever story we ever told live... 'An Táin Bó Culaigne' or
'The Cattle Raid of Coolie' but we'll have to wait till we're 7 to do that... 7 is a more mythic number anyway.

This episode focuses on the build up of the army of Ireland, led by Queen Medbh, as they march on Ulster to get the Brown Bull of Cooley.
Part 1 of 3 of our special edition birthday telling of the Táin.

Candlelit Tales

He strode out of the mist with a guitar in his hand and taught us about the rhythm of the stories… and what key we talk in

He can work the wizardry of technology far better than any Hegarty

Dogs follow him. Nobody knows why, they just do.

He makes jokes about being the reincarnation of the Oisin of mythology that we aren’t sure are actually jokes.

We’re not saying he is… but we’re not not-saying that either.

Happy birthday to one of a kind @oisinstirnarogue

Candlelit Tales

Episode 65 is our last and longest folk tale of our Samhain stories set list this year.
And boy is it a great tale... You might have heard versions of this before, but @sorchamh takes this tale to a whole new place with the help of the creepy music from @oisinstirnarogue of course.

Tune in on Subday at 6pm to hear us talk about all these recent folk tales of late with a special guest speaker.

Candlelit Tales

Flashback to our first ever shadow puppetry show in #smockalleytheatre with @flightoffancyshadows

How we miss live performances, and on this day #lovetheatreday we are reminded of every venue we played in, and were lucky enough to tell our stories in.

We will be telling stories live to audiences again!
