Milk and Cookie Stories IX – Truth or Fiction? Exchange Dublin,Tuesday 13 July

Milk & Cookie Stories presents
Milk and Cookie Stories IX
with a theme – Truth or Fiction?
and Milk & Cookies BAKE-OFF!

Doors 6.30pm, Tuesday July 13th
Exchange Dublin

Milk and Cookie Stories is a non-profit storytelling group based in Dublin, Ireland. We're looking to find out what stories our city has to tell. Storytelling, though very much a thriving art form, is rarely the focus of any event or performance. We believe that storytelling deserves to be placed in the spotlight. Dublin needs a place for people to come to hear a good story, and maybe tell one - we aim to provide that place. Milk and Cookies isn’t just for writers and performers – we would like anyone who has a tale to tell, or wants to hear a story told well, to have a warm, relaxed environment to do just that. A place with tea, cushions, cookies and friends.

The theme for this month is Truth or Fiction. Here’s the deal – after each story we’ll ask you to vote to see if you think what you’ve just heard is a true story that actually for-reals happened, or a sickeningly imaginative fabrication dredged from the hyperactive imagination of one who’s just had a few too many cookies.

We are not done with the BAKE-OFF!, because you are obviously not done with it either. Trade cookies for prizes! More details can be found here.

Free admission. Free tea. Free cookies. Free stories.
Donations welcome!

Storytelling for Children at the Dublin Rose Festival in St Anne's Park, Raheny, on Saturday 17th July from 11am

You are invited to come along and bring the kids to a Storytelling Session with Seosamh O Maolalaí at The Dublin Rose Festival Saturday 17th July In St. Anne’s Park, Raheny. Kids of all ages from 0 - 99+ welcome.
The storytelling will take place out in the sun, le cúnamh Dé, beside the Dublin City Libraries Story Bus. The Rose Festival takes place all around the beautiful Rose Garden in St Annes.
Seosamh (that's me!) will be entertaining the kids with stories from picture books and from his head, in English with a bit of Irish and a smattering of other tongues.
He will be getting the audience involved so if you fancy telling a tale yourself, do come along.
The Rose Festival is run by Dublin City Council Parks Dept. There's a rake of stuff going on in Dublin parks over the summer. Check out for the details.
