Spooky Hallowe'en Tales

Before rural electrification, when the wind rustled and shadows in the dark flickered by candlelight, storytellers infused the mind with terror and joy. Join one of Ireland’s premier traditional storytellers Niall de Burca to hear some spine-tingling stories based around our Museum’s collections. (Bi-Lingual)
