Inisfáil: Ancient Irish Myth – Performance
When the ancient Irish gods stepped onto the soil of Ireland, they burned their boats so they could never leave… Clare Muireann Murphy invites us into a beautiful yet bloodstained landscape where gods in golden halls drink from the cow of plenty, Kings are healed by children, fathers vie with sons and lusty monsters spit in the face of the prophets. This contemporary performance of the Irish myths of invasion is tautly laced with wit and verve.

“masterly storytelling – all delivered at a pace which meant there was never a dull moment”.
“Clare Muireann Murphy’s beautiful lilting Irish voice was in stark contrast to the darkly humorous stories she told us, and she her first-rate comic physicality only served to enhance her storytelling.”
