Four tale-tellers sit on a bench and show us why the Irish are famous for their amazing stories!
Conal tells of a queen who wants to eat her own daughter, and a prince who has two wives…
Niamh tells of a huge giant who makes a hole in a mountain, and an even bigger giant who dresses up as a baby…
Dermot tells of a sack that can talk… and a magic cow-skin that makes money if you hit it with a stick…
And Sinead helps the audience to decide which story is best!
