Fergus Cleary Island Stories

Wednesday May 8

Donegal’s top raconteur trains his humorous and perceptive eye on Island Life.

“My mother was born on the islands – Coney Island off Rosses Point in Sligo – and as a boy I was a regular annual visitor every summer. “ So begins Fergus Clearys life long relationship and observation of the unique lifestyle, habits and humour of island life.

Through a series of wonderful tales, poems and songs Fergus gives us an insight, both poignant and funny, into a forgotten way of life. One without electricity, without running water but full of character.
