Batten down the hatches and hang on tight for a storytelling experience that will ensnare
your imagination, as Niall de Búrca returns to the Waterside Theatre to spin tales inspired
by one of the world’s most unique and mighty landscapes…The Wild Atlantic Way!

Niall is a scéalaí: a traditional storyteller with the ability to connect with all ages. Raised in
the west of Ireland, he soaked up the vivid myths and legends of the coast. He loved tales of
chieftains, heroines and hags, of bowsies, banshee’s and brave fisherfolk who worked the
stormy seas. With a head full of stories Niall has performed across the world for over 25
years but he always returns to the unique coastal counties of the Wild Atlantic Way.

(de Búrca’s) ability to evoke a wide range of emotions from his rapt audiences enables him
to bewitch people with his stories and make listening to him, as well as watching him an
unforgettable experience. Vienna Review of Books
