Spiorad na Samhna – Spirit of Samhain

Spiorad na Samhna – Spirit of Samhain: An interesting short bi-lingual (Irish/English) video, produced by Dessie Baker, that traces the origins of Ireland’s biggest Halloween Carnival in Derry back to the 1980’s. It also traces the origins of Halloween to the Celtic Festival of Samhain as described by Dr. Jenny Butler of the Folklore Department, University College Cork.
