Sneem International Storytelling & Folklore Festival
Welcome to the seventh Sneem International Storytelling & Folklore Festival.
This year’s storytellers are Connie Regan-Blake from USA, Frances Kennedy and Tom Moore both from Listowel, Kerry, Pat Speightfrom Cork and our own Batt Burns (founder/Chairman) from Kerry as well as our Young Tellers and John Sheehan who will be lecturing this year on the Iveragh Peninsula.
Popular Cork musician John Spillane will be entertaining us on Friday night at the Storytelling Concert.
This year's Saturday feature play is "Silent" presented by Fishamble: The New Play Company, written and performed by Pat Kinevane. Fishamble and Pat Kinevane won an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in 2016 for this play.
Patrons can look forward to adult and children’s workshops, a pub trail, storytelling in the barn, and The South Kerry Rosen Choir are back to entertain you by popular demand. Not forgetting our ever popular lunchtime theatre this year is "The Trump Scheme" performed by Sneem Dramsoc.
We think we have something for all ages, for visitors and locals alike. We hope you enjoy our Festival and our colourful village.
An active committee, headed by Sneem’s international seanchai, Batt Burns, (www.battburns.com) would love to have you join us for a weekend of the best of Irish traditional entertainment.
