Inspired by one of the world’s most unique and mighty landscapes The Wild Atlantic Way, storyteller Niall de Búrca has created a new show called Wild Atlantic Tales, inspired by the folklore of these counties. Using his trademark enigmatic style to re-interpret our histories and stories, Niall takes us on a magical journey to imaginatively re-engage Irish audiences with the rich folklore of our coastal heritage.
The Wild Atlantic Tales will premiere in glór on September 23rd before embarking on a 9 county coastal tour of the Wild Atlantic Way to bring this new work to many arts centres, theatres and schools across the western seaboard to connect with children, families and people of all ages.
