Jennifer's talk was eye opening. She started with the source material for most of the myths, then wove that into how the myths and the landscape all blend to make for a magical talk.
I thoroughly enjoyed this presentation!
Jennifer Carbery was an excellent storyteller and guide to some awesome places across Ireland. I could listen to her all day.
A lot of tantalizing material was covered in an all too short hour and a half. I had visited two of the sites that were reviewed but Jennifer's talk made me aware of how much more history was there than I realized.
Jennifer did a great job covering a few of the many ancient sites in Ireland, relating their discovery stories and how they were used by the ancient peoples. The latter involves early myths as told on manuscripts dating back to the 700's AD which are held in various Irish institutions. Jennifer is a fluent storyteller and her enthusiasm just grabs you and draws you in. This would be a great event for anyone of Irish descent.
