The Seanchai

Pronounced *shanachie* or in our Editor in Chief's world, shenacheeay.

The seanchai were an important part of Ireland's history. These great tellers of the old tales involving history and lore dates back thousand of years. Unlike the scalea, who are modern storytellers and deal with contemporary or non-traditional themes, the seanchai were a revered part of the culture. They were revered for their talent and respected for the tradition.

They were welcomed into the rural farming homes during the long winters. Following this custom, Eirelander welcomes both its authors and readers.

Please, feel free to sit down and spend some time.

Sincere regards,

The Eirelander Staff
