Shamrocks

This is an original story written in the classic tradition:Shamrocks     When the little bell tinkled, Fagin, as usual, was fast asleep dreaming whatever leprechauns dream. The little bell was a call to action. Fagin checked the map and went to work. Someone, somewhere had found and picked a four leafed shamrock and that person was about to get their wish.     Fagin was in charge of all of Ireland’s shamrocks and, by extension, wish fulfillment. He had to see that shamrocks grew abundantly…See More

Storytellers: The Gift of Gab & The Golden Tongue

From true history to pure Blarney, from Irish Heroes to the Wee Folk, from the Stories Told 'Round the Hearth to the Written Word, from Mouth to Ear,...storytelling has been as important in Irish Tradition as the passing on of music. Continuing this Tradition is vital. Join and Share.See More

Hi Harris,

Like Joe & Adele, I thoroughly enjoyed your lyrics for The Water Song. As I was reading them I kind of heard a little dittie in my own head. Perhaps I'll also give it a try (although I KNOW Joe's & Adele's would be much better,.....great people: Joe & Adele. You're lucky to have them as friends here at TC.) Cheers,

Danny

Hi Harris,

We enjoyed your song lyrics for The Water Song!  We'd be happy to give it a go. Let us know if that's ok!

Kind regards,

Joe and Adele Greene.
