Everyone knows the Irish love a good yarn (story) and that Ireland has produced more great writers for the size of our country than pretty much anywhere else in the world. This ability to tell a tle originated in little thatch cabins with people sitting around entertaining each other with the news of the day. It is this very ability that is kept alive and is a truly remarkable gift that is preserved in these festivals. This is a joy for all ages to enjoy and something that will be remembered. Cork offers a wide variety of things to do for all ages and these are particularly special.
