Background experience:

Seosamh is a real Dub – his mother is a Coughlan from Cork and his father was a Lally from Roscommon!
Seosamh spent 17 years, from 1983 to 2000, telling stories in Dublin’s public libraries – in Coolock, Donaghmede and Ballymun.
Since leaving the wonderful public libraries for pastures new, he has worked part-time as a storyteller, telling tales to the young and young-at-heart in schools, libraries, community centres and all kinds of spaces, indoor and outdoor.

Seosamh has experience telling to pre-school children, primary and secondary school children and to adults. He has also told stories to children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

Insíonn Seosamh scéalta i mBéarla agus i nGaeilge. Seosamh tells in English and in Irish. Insíonn sé gach saghas scéal – scéalta grinn, scéalta béaloidis na hÉireann agus na cruinne, eachtraí, rannta agus amhráin. He tells all kinds of tales – funny stories, Irish and international folk tales, anecdotes, rhymes and song stories.

Bhí fear ann fadó agus fadó a bhí agus beidh go deo agus tá Seosamh pósta ar Elma, Corcaíoch Iartharach, agus tá triúr clainne acu. ‘Sé sin a leithscéal agus má tá bréag ann bíodh.
