A night of captivating tales at 'The Clonmel Storyslam' in association with Applefest on Thursday, September 21st!


Storytelling is experiencing a powerful revival in Ireland, with dedicated nights celebrating this ancient art springing up all across the country. In Clonmel, multi-talented sheep farmer, performer, playwright, glamper, and occasional carpenter, Joe Whelan, is leading the charge, bringing the magic of storytelling right to our doorstep. With his passion and dedication, Joe is ensuring that the rich Irish tradition of storytelling continues to thrive, uniting our community through the enchantment of narrative.

Join us in celebrating this cultural renaissance at 'The Clonmel Storyslam' where eight storytellers take the stage to share personal stories that will transport you to the hidden alcoves and vast open spaces of their worlds. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to connect with our community, share in our cultures, and immerse yourself in the magic of storytelling. Each storyteller will unravel their narrative, taking you on a 6 to 8-minute journey filled with laughter, nostalgia, and moments that will warm your heart. Get ready to smile, chuckle, and maybe even laugh out loud as we celebrate the art of storytelling in Clonmel.
