“My First Confession”: Hilarious! Irish Storytelling at its Best!
by Steve Ray on October 5, 2014
Not only Irish storytelling at its best, but also Batt Burns at his best. After dinner tonight we all went up to a private room and Pat Burns entertained us for an hour.
He had us with tears in her eyes both from laughter and from sadness which is what a good storyteller can do.
I hope you enjoy this two-part story of “My First Confession”. I had to do it in two parts due to the limitations of YouTube.
Steve, when I was in Cork years ago, my host read this story to me in a very strong Cork accent which I recorded and still have. It’s such a classic! So glad to see that you were able to hear it rended in a similar setting. You’re bringing back memories. Amazing that he had it all memorized! Enjoy yourself in the ‘ole country.
