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.

We're a group of storytellers, who meet every third Thursday of the month in Crawford & Co., Anglesea Street in Cork City.

Listen to local spinners of yarns as well as storytellers from all over Ireland. We also welcome new storytelling talent and musicians on our open nights.
