Adults, Special Needs, Festivals, Children
Full time, prepared to travel nationally and internationally.
I tell Myths, Legends, folktales and historical. With special needs and Alzheimer’s audiences I use reminiscence stories to help them relate. I also play the autoharp with songs that can be used in all of these situations.
I was born and raised in Derry but spent much of my childhood in Donegal with a great- aunt who was a natural storyteller. I have a background in teaching, and facilitating creative writing workshops with cross-community and inter-generational emphasis, in schools, community centres, hospitals, theatre and prison. I am author of Derry Folk Tales, Haunted Derry, Haunted Antrim and Haunted Donegal and these stories are much in demand at Halloween. I received Arts Council Awards to tell stories in USA.
I enjoy every kind of audience and tailor my stories and songs to give the best to each.
