Folklore Legends and Myths: Oein DeBhardúin and Michael Fortune in conversation

We’re delighted to share the first public conversation of our Thinking on Tuam residency, between author Oein DeBhardúin and filmmaker and folklorist Michael Fortune. The conversation focuses on folklore, mythology and stories, with Oein sharing his personal experience, his family’s superstitions and habits, while Michael shares his knowledge of region-specific and country-wide legends and folklore.

You can watch Oein and Michael’s conversation on the link to the right of this page.

This conversation was first shared on Culture Night 2020.
