Shadows of The Táin

Town Hall Theatre. Saturday 27th Oct, 5pm
Candlelit Tales presents Shadows of The Táin

“Atmospheric, evocative, and lyrically beautiful; audiences will hear this ancient story as it has never been told before” - RTE Culture Night

The Táin is Ireland’s greatest epic tale. It tells us of the great deeds of Cúchulainn as he stands alone against Queen Maeve of Connaught and the army of Ireland, who seek to steal the powerful Brown Bull of Cooley.

Candlelit Tales bring their epic storytelling of The Táin to life with original songs from the Old Irish verses, haunting shadow puppetry Flight of Fancy, and dynamic choreography.

A beautiful re-telling of one of Ireland’s most iconic legends.

Suitable for all ages.
