Welcome! Céad míle fáilte!

Light the candle with us

We are Cork Yarnspinners, Cork’s very own storytelling community! We gather every FIRST Thursday each month at 8 pm to light the candle for an evening full of stories, poems, and songs in ROSIE MADDISON’S on Bandon Road.

In 2020, we joined cyberspace and were thrilled to welcome artists and guests from around the world via Zoom. We’re now back to our live sessions but are planning to stay in touch with our international storytelling friends and audience. Watch this space for any news about that!
