Day 104 The Story Tellers (Photo A Day 2012)

I was at a story telling session in Art O’Neill’s barn in the town land of Tumpher between Coalisland and Stewartstown. It was a charity event to raise funds for several causes including the Mitre Trust Musgrave Park Hospital in Belfast. Story telling has a long history in Ireland. The”Shanachie” has always been held in high esteem in Irish society and those who entertained us last night did a fantastic job. Art O’Neill himself, Ian Coulter and Patsy O’Hagan were hilarious.
