Page 3 Sneem International Storytelling Festival 2014 Sneem International Storytelling and Folklore Festival 2014 This year’s Festival was very well s upported by so many people. Firstly we would like to thank our sponsors Failte Ireland who have f unded us f or the last three years. We would also like to thank the publicans for their support throughout the Festival with the use of their premises; our wonderf ul volunteers without whom we couldn’t even have held the Festival; and Sneem Hotel and all its staff who have been there f rom the very beginning. This year’s structure was similar to previous years. There was: Telling in the Barn, Lectures, Children’s Workshops, Tours and Story-swaps. This year we had our storytelling concert on the Friday, our tellers were Mike Mazur f rom USA, Michael Harv ey f rom Wales, Nuala Hayes - Dublin, Pat Speight and Teddy Black f rom Cork, Sonny Egan and Batt Burns f rom Kerry. The music was provided by the Sliabh Luachra musicians who delighted the audience with a number of reels, jigs and slides. The Children’s workshops were again very popular and well attended and the talented storytellers kept the children mesmerised with their tales, Pat Speight even taught them how to make a chicken out of a tea towel! This year’s Radio Kerry show had Batt on the phone and our international tellers Mike Mazur and Micheal Harv ey who were joined by two of our Young Tellers at the Killarney studios. Talking of our Young Tellers there were seven this year and they never f ailed to amaze us with their talent and conf idence at the mic. Later that evening we had the f abulous “Tom Crean – Antarctic Explorer” show written and performed by Aidan Dooley, this was very well attended. Aidan Dooley brings to lif e Tom Crean in a one man play. We hav e been t rying to get this show here f or the past two years and we f inally managed to f ind a gap in Aidan’s schedule which coincided with our f estival. Some of us had seen the show before and knew how brilliant Aidan and his show was, but those new to the show were so enthralled by his performance that at the end erupted into a spontaneous standing ovation. We would like to thank Eoin Shaw for his help on the lights - he did a great job with both the storytelling gala and Tom Crean. Kate Jonas and Tim O’S ullivan must also be thanked f or their contribution to the stage dressing and room set up. Afterwards the pub trail got under way and the pubs had good audiences for their tellers who all f inished up in Sneem House. When I lef t they were still telling stories at 1.30am. On Saturday we had a call f rom TG4 who wanted to come on Sunday to f ilm our f estival for their Naucht programme section Voice of the Community which was aired last Sunday the 16th November at 7pm. We are so proud of the quality of the f estival which we were able to present and so gratef ul for all the support we were given f rom all directions Rosie Crouch PR and Social Media www.sneemstorytellingfestival.com Page 4 Sneem Storytelling Festival - Raffle Results Sneem Storytelling Festival - Raffle Results Brushwood f ramed print - Laoise Burns, Meadhbh Bennett, Aisling Burns Signed Football by the Gooch - Kate Jonas Rose Prosecco (Sneem Hotel) - Vinny O’Leary Prosecco (Sneem Hotel) - Jim O'Sullivan Batt Burns Book & 2 CD's - Tom Scott Batt Burns Book & 1 CD - Stephen Burns Necklace (Kate Jonas) - Marsha Ladenburger Cap - Liam Burns Kenmare Craf t Beer (Rineys Bar) - Jackie Baron Pictured at the third Sneem International Folklore and Storytelling Festival on Friday night in the Sneem Hotel L;R: f ront row: Trisha Chamulova, Margaret Christian, back L:R: Barbara O'Connor, Eileen Burns and Michelle Walsh.

Cycling Workshop We recently completed a Saf er Cycling Workshop, which was very enjoyable and very inf ormative. The most exciting part was departing the school, cycling to the pier, having a snack and making it saf ely home again. We look f orward to more excursions on our bikes when the weather permits. Rockart Exploration We are eager to discover our past and also our locality and our recent trip to the Derrynablaha site advanced both of these wishes. Rosemary Cussen was our expert guide in prehistoric local art and we had an excellent outing to examine these wonderf ul artef acts which are so amazing. It was a very enjoyable and active day f or all! Page 8 Tahilla School News Out and about in Blackwater While discovering our locality we made an early morning trip to Blackwater Pier. The scene was magical as the early mist was rising and the tide was going out. Our guide was Stephanie O’Toole and we were kept busy collecting and identif ying species and observing nature at its best. We had a lovely lunch on the pier before getting back on the bus to go to the Blackwater River. We had a lovely walk along the riverbank and did some water sampling in a shallow area. We were amazed by the cascade, the width of the river and the speed of the water. Congratulations Well done to Gearóid, Eibhlin and LiQin who were winners in the Sherkin Island Environmental Art Competition. Well done to Melanie, Enya, Jasmine and LiQin who have had great success in Irish dancing lately. Well done girls! Swimming We have started swimming lessons at the Parknasilla pool and we are very gratef ul to have this opportunity. We look forward to improving our strokes, becoming conf ident swimmers and enjoying our local seas. Filming We are busy creating and making a f ilm at present.

The Course Structure This course off ers people a chance both to understand their own stress better and to f ind ways to break the cycle of stress and set up a cycle of wellness instead. The course normally involves ten weekly two-hour sessions. Th ere are u sually about fourteen participants in the group, with a trained f acilitator. The atmosphere is informal and f un – laughter being one of the greatest de-stressors. We do a lot of relaxation and some simple movement, so wear loose comfortable clothes. There will be time for lots of discussion as well as inputs f rom the tutor. What is Stress ? In itself stress is neither good nor bad: it is just a natural body reaction that evolved long ago to prepare our bodies to run away or f ight when we were attacked. The problem now is that in most stressf ul situations we can’t either run away or f ight. The result is that we live much of our lives with our nerves on edge and our bodies tense for action. Naturally, if we stay like that for long periods we are bound to suff er ill eff ects. These may be of diff erent kinds. Physical Effects In the short term we may get things like pains and aches and indigestion. In the long-term we may suff er f rom more serious illnesses, such as heart problems, high blood pressure, digestion diseases, etc. Effects on our Feelings and Thoughts Not only have our bodies, our emotional lives too showed the eff ects of stress. We can become cranky, irritable, listless, even “burnt out”, our ability to laugh and enjoy lif e can disappear. Our ability to think clearly and set sensible limits can suff er as well. All this of course adds to our stress. Effects on our Rel ationships Stressed people f ind it hard to relate well to others. They of ten are too stressed to enjoy the world around them. Even their spiritual lives may suff er. If you are interested in participating in this course, please contact Mary O’Callaghan or Máire in the off ice at 064 6675 879 or text Máire on mobile no. 086 158 1218. This course is supported by Kerry Education & Training Board. Droichead na Daoine inten d to org anise a Follow-on f rom the Basic Computer Course, which was held in November.
