It’s a strange time we’re living in, and entertaining the children at home all day can be a challenge.
Helena’s interactive, online storytelling transports children’s imaginations into the magical world of Irish folklore, with tales of the Leprechaun, the Fairy Folk, and spooky Irish Ghost Stories, not to mention Nursery Rhymes for your littlest ones.

    “Helena came to our school to do a workshop with 3 classes during literacy week. The workshops were a huge success. The children were so engaged and eager to participate. There was storytelling, drama, singing and creativity across the classes and Helena was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Helena for school workshops and we will certainly invite her back again soon.”Alison Furey, Shellybanks Educate Together, Dublin, February 2019
