I’m after finding this video on Youtube, made in northwest Mayo with John Henry, a famous storyteller and monolingual speaker. His Irish is simply beautiful:

I would sure like to hear the rest of the story that he is reciting! Legend has it that there is a book and CD of his stories.

Seán Ó Briain is one of the few people on YouTube who posts videos that are actually worth watching.

And here is a show from “The Story of English” with Seán Ó Heiniri (John Henry) and a very good poet named Pat Linney:

Thanks so much! I spent the day listening to Padraig Ó Gionnáin and Padraic Ó Murchú, now I have all this to go through! I recognise a few faces in that video, I must get onto them with this footage.
