The Sea Speak Storytelling Project returns this October.  Launched in January 2013 by Storyteller Daria Marie Walsh, Sea Speak is Howth’s first and only Storytelling night.  The Autumn season begins with a new offering for Sea Speak Junior on Tuesday 7th October from 3.00pm – 5.00pm at Kruger’s Pub, by the fireplace, “Stories in the afternoon”.  Last year the young Storytellers were busy learning the skills of Story-building and Story-telling; this year we’d like to introduce them to inter-generational Story sharing.  We are hoping to get some of our senior Storytellers and Story-lovers to come along on the First Tuesday of each month and share their Stories with us.  All story-lovers of all ages and experience, or none, are very welcome and encouraged to attend.  Additionally, Sea Speak Storytelling night will resume on Thursday 16th October, at Kruger’s Pub, at a new earlier time of 7.00pm to 9.00pm.       -    Dara Walsh


The Parish Community warmly welcomes Aoibhe Cora Lynch and Daragh Quinn who were baptised recently in our Church.  Congratulations and every joy to their proud parents, Grandparents, God Parents and extended family.
