Sneem International Storytelling & Folklore Festival


6th - 8th November 2015

The third annual Storytelling Festival took place from 7th - 9th November 2014 and was well attended and supported by Failte Ireland.


The Festival featured all the favorites - telling in the barn, lectures, children’s workshops, tours and story swaps.

Friday’s storytelling included Mike Mazur - USA, Michael Harvey - Wales, Nuala Hayes - Dublin, Pat Speight and Teddy Black - Cork, and Batt Burns – Kerry and music from Sliabh Luachra musicians.

Many children were mesmerised by the Storytellers at their workshops.

Radio Kerry’s Frank Lewis featured the festival with Mike Mazur, Michael Harvey and 2 Young Tellers at the Killarney studios. Seven Young Tellers this year amazed us with their talent and confidence at the microphone.

On Saturday, Aidan Dooley brought to life "Tom Crean – Antarctic Explorer" in his fabulous one-man show. Our biggest audience to date thanked him with a spontaneous standing ovation. Then the pubs were full until late as the Storytellers visited the village with the ever popular Sonny Egan joining us on the pub trail.

TG4 filmed Sunday for their Nuacht programme section, Voice of the Community which aired on the 16th November at 7.00 pm.

We are proud of the quality of the festival we presented and grateful for the support we were given from everyone.
