Past events

We’re on the road:

  • On Wed 5 October, Deirdre O’Byrne gave a talk on Irish Halloween customs, using some Irish fiction (eg Joyce’s short story ‘Clay’ from Dubliners) as a basis for the discussion. Hosted by Birmingham Irish Heritage Group, Birmingham Irish Centre, 7pm. The story of ‘Jack o’ Lantern and the Devil’ went down well.
  • Friday 21 Oct, 10.15 – 10.45am, we did Irish Storytelling in Charnwood Museum, Loughborough, as part of Loogabarooga Festival.
