  • "Lovely man. Totally engaged the children with his stories - fantastic interaction. Looking forward to inviting him in again next year. A pleasure to deal with."
  • "Seosamh’s storytelling workshops with all classes were greatly enjoyed by all. He made excellent use of resources and interacted very well with all age groups. The Junior Classes’ storytelling workshop engaged them in lots of actions which they thoroughly enjoyed. The Senior Classes particularly enjoyed his storytelling through Irish & English. Overall it was a great experience for all and one we look forward to organising again. Thanks." - Wandesforde NS, Kilkenny

  • "A wonderful event, catered for all ages. Simple easy listening & interaction with the four age groups. Excellent!" - St. Tiarnachs Primary School, Monaghan
  • "Seosamh visited our school over two days to co-incide with World Book Day. His enthusiasm is infectious and the children look forward to his annual visit. He engages the children's attention and interest very naturally and they can recall his stories from previous years. Seosamh is a wonderful storyteller and in a world where so many children are so fixated by electronic devices, it is wonderfully refreshing to see them so enthralled by a real life storyteller!" - Clonburris NS, Dublin
  • "Excellent all round." - Anon
