"An evening of stories and folklore with Ireland's premier Seanchaí"


If you fancy an enchanting night out with a difference then a visit to The Royal Theatre, Castlebar, is a must when Ireland's greatest storyteller Eddie Lenihan will make a welcome return with Tales of Magic, Myth and Mystery on Friday 23rd March in our Ruby Room.


Eddie Lenihan is a living legend to all who remember being entranced by his 'Ten Minute Tales' which were broadcast on RTE and for his series on BBC Radio. Eddie is one of the few practising Seanchaí remaining in Ireland and is particularly well known for his tales of Irish folk heroes, fairies, fallen angels and other supernatural beings as recorded in Irish mythology, folklore and oral history.


He has told his stories in schools and prisons and at gatherings of storytellers all over this country. He has been acclaimed a national treasure and has an international reputation.


He is a collector of stories and has probably the biggest private collection of tapes, cds and video in this country. He has written more than twenty books. In short, Eddie Lenihan is something of a phenomenon.


So come along for an evening of stories and folklore which will entertain, delight and maybe even enlighten you!
