Hello I am The Story Pilgrim. I am blessed I live in a place where the sky is always in conversation with the landscape. A place where every hill, river and stone has a story.
The legend of the leprechaun is so much a part of Irish folklore Legends are formed by the telling of the story until it becomes rooted in time. Apparently the leprechaun can be traced back to eighth-century tales of water spirits called "luchorpán," meaning small body. I invite you to listen to my own self-penned cautionary tale - McGonigle.
Currently, I live in Skibbereen. It is the way of the pilgrim to be on a journey so it is probable I may move again. Skibbereen has many stories deep in its bones. Skibbereen suffered badly during An Gorta Mor, the Great Hunger which caused many people to die and emigrate.
A story is a gift - not a performance to be judged but a treasure to be passed on.
