Irelandís Heirlooms - Irish Folklore, Beliefs & Superstition
Thursday, September 7, 2017 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Combining her love of Irish folklore and passion for Irish music, Helena Byrne regularly performs as a seanchaí (storyteller) and singer in Dublin and further afield. Helena’s storytelling interweaves tales of the Other World and the mysterious Fairy Folk with traditional Irish songs and wonderful insights into the Irish life of days gone by.

Akin to the traditional traveling seanchaí of times past, Helena is renowned for bringing her spellbinding stories and songs to diverse audiences in settings large and small. From young to old, Helena will bring your imagination into the fascinating world of the Banshee, the Pooka and the supernatural, while emulating the traditional Irish sing-song.

RSVP required. Space is limited to 45 people.

Cost $15 for adults; $10 seniors (65+); UST faculty, staff and students free
