Best Answer

One of the best was Éamonn Kelly, a Kerryman who died in the 1990s. he was a pure story teller - I don't think he made up most of the stories he told. Others who did would be John B. Keane and Bryan MacMahon. in the Irish language two of the best would be women - Bab Feirtéar, who only died last year, and Peig Sayers, who died in 1958.

The traditional folk-tale tellers of Ireland are called Seanchaí. Eddie Lenihan would be the most famous storyteller at the moment.
