“Tales and Ales”
A Night of Storytelling
at the Locks Inn, Geldeston
Thursday 18th July 2013 – 8pm
This brilliant production is a collaboration between Jim Kavanagh and Liam Carroll, http://
They share an interest in the mythology of Ireland and have worked together on this selection of tales from The Tain, a this vast body of archaic lore.
Written down by Irish monks in the 700’s but believed to originate from a much older oral traditions, the stories provide a glimpse into the society of Celtic warrior aristocracy which never came under the direct influence of Rome.
Full of rich imagery and extraordinary characters, these tales tell of a time when magic was a powerful force, of mighty deeds & daring cattle raids in ancient Ireland, with talking eels, a thirsty corpse and a shameless & dangerous warrior Queen.
Definitely not to be missed!!
The set lasts for approximately one hour so there will still be time for a few Irish tales from the floor.
