Candlelit Tales Presents

Fury on the White Strand

Candlelit Tales, a storytelling group that specialise in retelling Irish myths and legends with live music, bring the story of the Battle of Ventry to you this season. As we celebrate the Spring transforming into Summer, we will, with music and melody, regale you with this old tale.

The Fianna were faced with a terrible fight. Against the King of the World, and his monstrous army. A tale with as many twists and turns as the southwest coastal roads around Dingle where this tale took place.

“Men and women waited with bated breath for the signal to move. All eyes were on their captain. Waiting for his signal to move. The dew hung heavy on the wide open, wind-swept white strand. It would soon be stained red.”


Candlelit Tales are a storytelling group that specialize in retelling Irish myths and legends with live music. No matter how much or how little people know of Irish Mythology, these stories are for people who have never heard any Irish tales before and for those who might know it all.

Our stories live in the oral tradition, fluid and adaptable, flowing with live music that accompanies and enhances every moment. We will make you laugh, we may make you cry, and we might even make you roar.

We want to let these stories live again, and we need you to listen.

“The public is captivated (…) each twist and turn of their tales is met with laughs, sighs, and applause” Melanie Brisard, The Irish Times.

“Candlelit Tales is a quintessential Irish experience that manages to blend the ancient with the new, while remaining a truly authentic performance.”
