An Evening of Storytelling

Storyteller: Mark Ó Géaráin 

This evening recalls legends and tales, for an adult audience, of the ancient feast known now as Halloween. 

Irish Storyteller Mark Ó Géaráin presents the origins of Samhain (pronounced SAH-win) through shadowy, twisted stories marking the beginning of the dark half of the year. These mythologies have inspired and protected Irish people for generations. Ó Géaráin gives a raw and darkly funny look at the stories and traditions that have shaped the legend’s life.
