Greetings from a fellow Irish storyteller. So you are in Clare. Nearly ended up there but thats another story. Came to Leitrim via way of a calling from W. B. Yeats and the Isle of Innisfree. Still finding peace comes dropping slow and the way to Tir na Nog at the deep hearts core. Blessings Tony
Those would be a fine array of large and small mouth bass... there might be a catfish in there too... My memory is poor when it comes to fishing... volume is worst issue, followed closely behind by species and the fight involved in hauling them in... but you can see they's a mess a fish there for sure.
'ta! Increasingly US tellers perform @ North American Fringes. Some storytelling events offer Fringes (Northlands & NSN). There's a Fringe group here on profstoryteller. Your story: super! Loved the growing sense of madness whirling as situation heated up. My granny smoked Woodbines; she'd send me down the road to buy 1 at a time. Also loved the youtube intro to your son's work! Definitely energetic.
Hello Eddie and welcome to the Celtic Storytellers discussion group. I found your profile very interesting so checked out your website. Will have to get a hold of 'Out of the Blue'. I've tended to focus on Scottish Celtic stories.
May you have 1000 plus 1! I gather you hope we will talk again (me too) but my Irish predates my ability to read in either English or Irish, so the rest is lost. Thanks for your observation re" young tellers being more energetic. That's what I saw wt some young ones in Dublin & Cork but didn't know it happened elsewhere. Globalization affecting style perhaps. Much interested in your book; will go to your site. Will listen to your story & search for fada when my PC stops acting up. Best of luck.
