Bard Summer School

Join us on Clare Island this July 4th-8th 2017


About the Bard Summer School

The Bard Summer School, which takes place on Clare Island, off the West Coast of Ireland, involves hearing the stories of the Irish Myths we have chosen to explore. We then look at these and their contemporary relevance and meaning. Oral Stories are always heard in terms of today – they are a great way of reflecting on modernity.During the Summer School week we also enjoy the Clare Island Storytelling, Song, Poems and we finish with a Feast on the Saturday Night. Tours of the Island can also be arranged.

This year we look at:

The Battle of Moytura

Building Walls? Building Bridges?

This year we will be exploring the contemporary relevance of good and evil through the lens of the great battle between Balor of the Evil Eye and Lugh at the Battle of Moytura.
