Irish Storytelling

On YouTube I watched a sort of documentary on the loss of traditional Irish storytelling. I saw an 89 year old man from Connemara, who spoke only Gaelic, who had learned the old stories from his father. He had no children of his own. He said in the old days, the young people would listen to the storyteller and learn the stories and retell them, but nowadays, the young people don't care to do that. The interviewer asked him if that made him sad, and he said it made him very sad.

Well, then I found this video. I think you'll enjoy it!
