Songs of Murder, Madams and Mayhem

To celebrate Culture Night 2013 Marino Library held an evening of Dublin ballads with Anne and Niamh Buckley. The sisters delighted the packed audience with ballads that ranged from hearbreaking to gruesome. With these songs of murder, madams and mayhem perhaps staff member Anne is falling under the influence of the ghost of Marino born Bram Stoker and the library's Gothic Literature Collection!

If you'd like to hear more, good listeners are always welcome at An Góilín, Traditional Singer's Club based in The Teacher's Club, Parnell Square, Dublin.
