The Legend of Finn MacCool, the Irish Giant

From the mists of Time, where history and myth meet to dance a dance of wonder and joy, comes this giant of a tale from Ireland. A roaring musical comedy for all ages, with giants, druids, and some tricky, tricky wishes...

This Arís original was created by our very own Rob Shaw-Smith, who has taken something ancient and legendary, and dolled it up with music and humor that will have audiences tapping their toes and splitting their sides. There's something magical for everyone in The Legend of Finn McCool!

We participate in other events that feature the literature, poetry, and music of the British Isles.
