“If you don’t get goosebumps when you hear her beautiful voice then you may need to consult a medical professional because chances are, you’re dead inside.” – Travel Ireland Magazine, March 2016
“I didn’t want the stories to end, each one was more spellbinding than the last.” – The Celtic Connection Magazine USA, March/April 2016
“A brand new album from an Irish storyteller bridges the gap between Irish legends and folk music.” – The Irish World Newspaper UK, April 2016
“There is a very unfortunate impression that the art of traditional storytelling is only suited for the juvenile mind, and adults are somehow exempt from its virtues. Byrne, a Kilkenny native… certainly doesn’t feel that way, and “Scéal” states her case for reclaiming storytelling as multi-generational entertainment – and, of course, a way to pass along history and culture.” – Boston Irish Reporter, May 2016
