Living legend to spook out Dundalk Gaol

Seanchaí Eddie Lenihan returns to Dundalk Gaol on Saturday 17 February

Proving that just like Ghostbusters, the Oriel Centre audience ‘ain't afraid of no ghost’, tickets are nearly sold out for Eddie Lenihan – Storyteller, when he makes a welcome return to the Oriel Centre, Dundalk Gaol on Saturday 17th February at 8.30pm.

Eddie Lenihan is one of the few practising seanchaí (traditional Irish lore-keepers and tale-spinners) remaining in Ireland.

He has been called "one of the greatest of Irish story-tellers and "a national treasure” 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.

Eddie Lenihan is regarded as 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.

Expect to hear some tales of Cú Chulainn at the Oriel Centre that have rarely been told before so if you love tales of the Táin this night is a must.

Tickets are €15 and only a small number of tickets are available. For tickets contact the Oriel Centre, Dundalk Gaol on 042 9328887 or www.orielcentre.ie
