The Long Sleep with Dermot Bolger and Jerry O’Reilly

Wednesday, 17 March 2021, 4.25pm

The Long Sleep is presented at The Crypt in Christchurch Cathedral and is a collaboration of traditional poetry and singing with Dermot Bolger and Jerry O’Reilly.

Taken from the Irish word meaning both ‘to say’ and ‘to sing’, Abair is a program of traditional singing and storytelling events exploring the oral folk traditions of Ireland.

The programme, curated by Macdara Yeates and hosted by Donal Fallon, offers a broad range of intimate, unplugged performances, each highlighting the richness and beauty of the Irish singing and storytelling traditions still preserved and practiced to the present day.

All St Patrick’s Festival events can be viewed on SPF TV on the festival’s website:
