Do you have Irish heritage? Cousins and kin across the water? Do you have an affinity with the land that’s only a stone’s throw away from Liverpool? Then come and hear the stories and language that belongs to you.

Tales of warrior women, wailing banshees (bean sidhes), shapeshifting sea creatures and the strange, dark deeds of “the other crowd”.

Maria Buckley Whatton is an internationally renowned masterful teller.

Dr Eoghan Ahern teaches Irish language courses at the Institute of Irish Studies. His research interests lie in the early medieval period (c.400–c.900), particularly the literary and intellectual culture of Ireland and Britain.

Prepare to be beguiled by extraordinary stories of ancient Ireland. You might even find yourself with a bit of Gaeilge on the tip of your tongue.
