Upcoming Events

Thursday 13th June, 2019 – LARNE MUSEUM & ARTS CENTRE – “A RIVER IN TIME”

The Boyne: From the Beginning to the Battle and Beyond

On Thursday 13th of June at 7:30pm I will be performing a piece called A River in Time at Larne Museum & Arts Centre. This storytelling performance blends mythology, history and personal anecdote. It will take you on a journey through the Boyne valley from the river’s source in the mists of time, past Tara of the Kings and the deep pool where the Salmon of Knowledge was caught, to Newgrange, the home of the old gods of the Tuatha de Danann. The river’s journey will wind through the battlefield of 1690 before continuing on to the sea.
The evening will be accompanied by Amy McAllister on harp.
