What is Scéalta?
A gaelic word with a rich history.
As early as a thousand years ago, the scéalaithe – the storytellers – would enchant their audience with Irish myths and legends. They travelled throughout the land and collected stories of adventures, but also things of general interest and importance to share them with the people they would meet along the way. Even today – centuries later – the art of storytelling is still of great importance.
