Samhain Storytelling Festival

Íontas Theatre & Monaghan County Libraries are delighted to bring you the first cross border Storytelling Festival in County Monaghan, through the Creative Monaghan and Shared Island Initiative. We are delighted to welcome a diverse range of storytellers and performers to the festival, who will be visiting schools, care settings, and libraries on both sides of the border.

We will be launching and hosting the County’s first Fighting Words programme in partnership with Fighting Words NI which will offer all ages opportunities to dabble in the many processes of creative writing. 

As long as we are engaged in storytelling, our culture, history and heritage are moved forward. It is through every format that storytelling can be used, and throughout this festival, we will be using many different storytelling forms, which will provide something new and inspiring for all age groups, visitors and locals alike. Storytelling has always been a great means to uniting and sharing communities' cultures in a respectful and inclusive manner.
