The Irish Origins of Halloween

The Embassy of Ireland and the University of Warsaw would like to invite you to a very special event: an evening with Jonny Dillon, archivist from Ireland's National Folklore Collection.

Jonny Dillon will give a presentation about the beginnings of Halloween, how it began to be celebrated in Ireland and how this folk tradition went global! His talk will include audioclips and images from Ireland's digital archives. There will be time for questions and answers and the event will be followed by a reception offering traditional seasonal Irish treats. The event will be in English with simultaneous interpretation into Polish. All are welcome and entrance is free.
