The Christmas Cabin of Carnaween
Set in the days of the great famine, this poignant Irish tale about a tinker's child, who as a newborn babe, was left on a doorsill, when there were too many children for the caravan. The Hagerty family who take her in come to love her as one of their own, She grows to be a fine young lass, but being a tinker's child, no one will marry her so she spends her days toiling for in others homes, caring for their children, their sick and old ones, being passed from family to family in need, but always longing for a cabin of her own. When the great famine hits the hardest, she is an old woman, and no longer of any value to the Lynch family, whose charity is strained by their lack of food. On a snowy Christmas eve she decides to make her leave and makes her way to a stretch of road on a hill by the sea where she always dreamed of having a cabin of her own. Her dream would go unfulfilled were it not for the wee people who come to her aid.
Accompanied by the live Irish music duo Tir na Nog and just the right measure of Irish charm, Christmas Cabin of Carnaween is sure to warm even the hardest of hearts this holiday season.
