Join Monaghan Libraries Storyteller in Residence, Francis McCarron, and the local community for an evening of storytelling, poetry, and song in Greenan’s Cross Schoolhouse on Sep 23rd. This beautiful cultural setting is the ideal place to share stories on Culture Night. Tales of schooldays, legend, and folklore will all get told! Local tales shared by local tellers are also sure to feature. This is a fun night not to be missed. Admission is free and there’s a cup of tea! If you wish to spend money, donations to Crocus Cancer Care will be gratefully accepted.
Francis McCarron has been sharing tales for over 30 years and is passionate about getting people to preserve and share their own stories, particularly those from his native county of Monaghan.
