Story Archaeology

Uncovering the layers of Irish Mythology through a regular podcast and related articles.

The ‘Online’ Óenach Gallery Hub

Here are just a few examples of stories and pictures from Scoil na nAingeal Naofa NS, Boyle. They scripted a play, a story as exciting as any of the old Irish stories, designed costumes and decorated props, and performed the play for me over Zoom. It was brilliant!

Here is some of the great work from Ballinteva N.S. They created stories and poetry as well as researching more information about the Táin Bó Cúailnge. They created some excellent illustrations. and clay model jewellery. See some of their work by clicking on the links below.

Below are some of the special ‘action poems’ , simple versions of Rosc style poetry. They tell of chariot racing and battles very effectively. Click on the links to read them.

There is still time for more stories, poetry and designs to be added to the Feasting Hall. I will add a further selection of work to this gallery before long.
