  • Our earliest customs and beliefs from our Celtic past
  • The world of the imagination, the spiritual, the mysterious, the unseen and including of course the world of The Irish Fairies
  • How our people lived their daily lives, the houses they lived in and the crucial importance of the potato to their survival
  • Our songs and story-telling which still have such joy, meaning and importance for us
  • The lightness and laughter that shaped us as a people and helped us to survive and thrive down through many difficult centuries


The show will have particular emphasis on our rich heritage of songs and music. This will involve a degree of spirited audience participation!
