Storyteller Brendan Nolan is the author of Dublin Folk Tales
Many accounts of Dubliners and Dublin City fill Brendan’s books Dublin Folk Tales and the earlier Barking Mad, Tales of Liars, Lovers, Layabouts and Lunatics.
To these, in live storytelling, he adds tales chosen from Irish folklore that have passed down through the generations.
He also re-tells stories selected from the great tradition of European storytellers. The stories are mainly of people in any place striving to make sense of life and their place in it.
Brendan is a member of Storytellers of Ireland and was featured guest speaker for the long-established Dublin Yarnspinners in the heart of the city, and featured guest teller at Irish Writers Centre on Heritage Night.
In Toledo, he told in Teatro De Rojas a beautiful baroque city theatre and in Guadalajara, Brendan participated, with hundreds of other storytellers, in a 36-hour storytelling marathon.
