Yvonne Healy didn’t simply kiss the Blarney Stone; she swallowed it. A citizen of two cultures, Irish and American, Yvonne spoke both languages as a child. From this world of hidden treasures rose one of America’s most endearing storytellers. Funny, thought-provoking, and dynamic, too! A little bit Ireland and a little bit USA, Healy’s award-winning stories delight audiences across the Rocky Mountains, the North Woods, Midwestern plains, and East Coast. Savor the stew of her Irish gift of gab spiced with the multicultural spice of an American upbringing. The Republic of Ireland’s cultural authorities recognize Healy as the foremost teller of Irish stories in the USA and her storytelling is regularly featured at large Irish festivals in North America. With Halloween fast approaching, Yvonne will tell Irish ghost stories.
