The Hidden Folklore of Ireland in Kilkenny City is an evening of relaxing, lighthearted entertainment. This one man show explores the culture and folklore of the ordinary Irish people down through ages; a people that have been called the hidden Irish.

The Hidden Folklore of Ireland Show explores, through songs and stories, the daily lives of the ordinary Irish people down through the years, their struggles, their joys and sorrows, their rich and deep appreciation of the natural world and the word of the spirit.

The show takes place every Thursday evening in Bollard's Bar on Kieran Street in Kilkenny City. Some of the main themes of the show explore

the earliest customs and beliefs rooted in our Celtic identity,

the world of the imagination, the mysterious and the unseen, a world that sometimes evoked spells, fairies, magic and curses.

Delve into how people lived their everyday lives, their houses, the food they ate and their profound knowledge of what we now call sustainable living.

Experience the central role that songs, laughter and stories played in the lives of the hidden Irish.
