Irish Lore and Enchantment

Saint Patrick’s Day, a day honoring Ireland’s patron saint, is March 17th. This March, we’ll celebrate Ireland, its culture, and its people, with some traditional Irish tales. Ireland is a land of green beautiful landscapes and rich folklore: fairies, pookas, leprechauns, banshees, and storytellers. This island nation has a lot to offer. Join us in celebrating Ireland by enjoying these wonderful stories.

Have you ever heard of a goat being crowned king? Come listen to the tale of King Puck, from the town of Killorglin, County Kerry, Ireland to find out more about this “King” and sing about leprechauns with us. Join us on Wednesday, March 17th at 4:00 p.m.; click here for details.
