Seanchai's of old told stories and sang ballads. The old Irish songs relating to heroes were the foundation upon which has been raised "the splendid fabric of Erin". Your Seanchai tonight will not sing (God be praised!) but will present for your entertainment and edification two ballads of Ireland. One is the real history of the Great King Brian Boru, and the second is a conversation that may have taken place between St. Patrick and Oisin, the son of Finn MacCool and possibly Ireland's greatest poet... after his extended visit to the Fairyland of Tir na nÓg.
- Brian Boru and the Battle of Clontarf
- Oisin in the Land of the Fae
