'Sean Fitzgerald & The Leprechaun' from Helena's second album ‘Scéal – a Collection of Irish Stories, Music & Poetry’ available at helenabyrne.com/sceal
‘Scéal’, meaning ‘Story’ in the Irish language, is a collection of Helena’s favourite Irish stories and poems, gathered by Helena from various sources, including her own family and neighbours. These stories of Leprechauns and Trooping Fairies, encounters with the ‘Other Folk’ during the festival of Samhain and poems inspired by these magical tales are sure to bring you into the ‘Other World’ and awaken your imagination.
Scéal’s 17 tracks include My Lagan Love, Michael O’Brien & the Banshee of Graiguenamanagh, The Piper & the Pooka, James Byrne & the Death Coach, and many, many more.
A Note from Helena: “For the past number of years I have been regaling guests with stories of the fairies and other enchanting tales from Irish folklore. Having had many guests ask me to record these stories, I am delighted to share with you this collection of my favourite stories and poems that I’ve been fortunate enough to gather over the years. I look forward to sharing this collection with you and hope that it will bring many hours of wonder and joy to you and yours.”
