" The Seanchaí is a visitor attraction in the Heritage Town of Listowel which presents the works of the great Kerry writers in a unique audio-visual experience. Located in a 19th century Georgian residence in Listowel’s magnificent Square, the Centre features five of the County Kerry’s most esteemed writers – John B. Keane, Bryan MacMahon, George Fitzmaurice, Brendan Kennelly and Maurice Walsh. The writings of these national and internationally renowned literary figures are filled with an abundance of rich characters, humour, romance and tragedy drawn from the towns and villages of North Kerry. The words of the writers will make you laugh and cry, but above all you will come away from your visit to Seanchaí with a sense of the people and places that shaped Kerry’s literary genius."

Living Literature

ACTORS breathe life into literature, give voice to the characters, substance to the events. The AUDIENCE experiences the story, instead of just reading it. 

Your tour of the Kerry Writers’ Museum is now brought to life by costumed characters in our ‘Living Literature’ Programme. 

Living Literature will run at 12 noon & 2 pm on Wednesday May 28th, Thursday May 29th, Friday May 30th & Saturday May 31st during Listowel Writers' Week 2014.
