Thomas McCarthy is an Irish Traveller, singer and storyteller hailing from Birr, County Offaly and based in England. Named Traditional Singer of the Year 2019 at the Gradam Ceoil Awards, Thomas seeks to show people the richness of his heritage. Storytelling is a key part of this, and Thomas delights children with stories of fairies, hunchbacks, banshees, druids, Finn McCool and Cú Chulainn. Driven by a passion for keeping the art of conversation and communication alive, Thomas’ stories will appeal to both young and old
