The 18th of September is the day of the Scottish independence referendum. To mark the occasion the world famous Celtic Tales storytelling sessions in The Cottage Bar, Galway, will be turned into a celebration of Scottish culture and the ideals of Scottish Independence. Storyteller Rab Fulton - originally from Glasgow but living in Galway for most of his adult life - will be telling wild and hilarious tales from Scotland. To make the event extra special everybody will be allowed in at the discount price of 7 euro. Show begins at 8pm.
As well as a storyteller, Rab is an author and essayist. His recent work includes a series of essays called ‘Social Justice and Scottish Independence’ which can be read at: http://rabfultonstories.weebly.com/blog/2 The essays are packed with information and insights into the events leading up to the referendum.
‘I believe independence carries the best possibility of promoting social justice, tolerance and equality in Scotland’ explains Rab. ‘An independent Scotland would set an example across these islands , whether you live in Cork or Manchester, Cardiff or Dundee.’
Everybody is welcome to the celebration, Scots and non-Scots, Yes voters and No voters alike. For more on Celtic Tales see: https://www.facebook.com/celtictalesrabfulton Follow Rab on twitter at https://twitter.com/haveringrab
