The Dark Deepens


The darkness of Samhain goes deeper than ghosts, darker than trick or treat. This October, join us for the tales of the growing shadow that would lead Ireland into its most terrible ancient war. Murder, betrayal, and cursed men lead us into the dark half of the year.

Candlelit Tales is a monthly night stories and music that specializes in retelling the stories of Irish Myth as they were traditionally told. They have a series of nights across the month with a theme harking back to Irish myth and folklore. Now they have a storytelling podcast, as well as organizing storytelling nights in and around various venues across Dublin and Ireland. Candlelit Tales have created children’s shows, theatre shows, festival shows, and now a new podcast. And they keep finding more stories and more ways to tell them.
