Comments: "SIAMSA (promounced Shee-am-sa), is a folk entertainment which recaptures the spirit of the age in Ireland when Irish was the spoken language, the age from which Ireland inherited her great treasure of folk music and song. It aims to show something of the simple way of life of the people who gave her that heritage."
