Dublin Folk TalesDublin Folk Tales was launched in Dublin on April 19, 2012 by storyteller Jack Lynch.
The venue was the Teacher’s Club at 36 Parnell Square, a Georgian building in the heart of the city.
The building has seen many people pass through its doors, some unknown to all but themselves, some famous and some even infamous in one way or another, .
The room chosen for the launch is the room where singing teacher Dr. Vincent O’Brien privately coached James Joyce and John McCormack in singing lessons, so many lifetimes ago.
