Monaghan Yarnspinners


The Monaghan Yarnspinners meet online fortnightly, on a Friday evening from 8.30 – 10.30pm. There is a very loose format to the evening and all are welcome. Drop in any evening that it's on to tell a tale, share a poem, sing a song, or just to listen and enjoy - whatever you feel like doing. Pieces are usually 3-7 minutes long to allow as many as possible to contribute and priority is given to local tellers. However, we have had tellers from Hackballscross to Hawaii!

Contact for details on how to join our 2022 sessions.
