Síscéal ó Ghaillimh
Fans of A Dublin Fairytale will be enchanted by this contemporary take on the Hansel and Gretel fairytale set in modern-day Galway. Features locations such as the Spanish Arch, Salmon Weir Bridge and Eyre Square, as Seán and Gráinne seek out the perfect present for their mother.
They pack their lunch for the day and set out on their shopping trip. On their travels around the city, they meet a knight, a pirate queen and a fisherman. They share their delicious soda bread with each of these character, leaving a trail of crumbs everywhere they go. When a wicked witch tries to steal the present they have bought for their mother’s birthday, these characters leap to their rescue, rewarding the kindness the children have showed them.
In their hasty retreat from the witch’s clutches, Séan and Gráinne are lost in the city. Luckily, they follow their trail of breadcrumbs all the way home – just in time for the party!
