Up to the time of his death in 2001, Eamon Kelly was a household name in Ireland, largely through the media of TV and Radio, as a Seanachi or ‘old Irish story-teller’. He regaled the nation with all kinds of stories drawn from recollections of his Kerry childhood and from rural life in general, and as he would say, ‘in my father’s time’. 

Come and hear actor Jack Healy bring to life a compendium of Kelly’s most comic and colourful characters. Carpentry, drink, hat-wearing, emigration and devilment weave their way through these marvellous stories. We hear about runaway fillies, Ned Connors, who was “fierce for the drink”, Bridgie and her curious request to the carpenter, the three-in-a-bed escapade of the Tayman, and Mick the Fiddler with his adventures in New York.
