 Caoimhe agus na Caoga Caorigh Craicáilte Le Fionn Foley | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 21:10

Seo é Caoimhe agus na Caoga Caorigh Craicáilte Le Fionn FoleyTá Caoimhe deich bliain d’aois agus ina chonaí ar fheirm beag lena thuistí amuigh faoin tuath. Nuair a chloiseann a hathair go bhfuil a ghabhar, Setanta, tar éis bhriseadh isteach in Oifig an Phoist agus é ag ithe an t-airgead Comaoineach ar fad, cuireann sé de chúram ar a hiníon aire a thabairt ar a chuid caoige caoire craiceáilte. Níl Caoimhe ró-thogtha leis an jab in aon chor, ach shocraíonn sí cabhrú lena hatháir má ligeann sé í breathnú ar Lethal Weapon II an tráthnóna sin.D’aithíonn Caoimhe amach nach bhfuil sé chomh eascá mar a shíl sí aire a thabairt ar caoige caora cantalach. Tosaíonn ráflaí ag dul tríd an tréad faoi mic tíre agus sionnach fiachmhar sa choill in aice an bpáirc - agus tosaítear deighilt ceart i measc na caoire.Roimh i bhfad, tá eirí amach roimpi agus í ag streachailt caoire a hathair a chomáid faoi smacht. Cathfidh sí foghlaim go tapaí conas dealáil le bréag, cealgaireacht agus cac caoire, nó beidh an tréad go hiomláin tríne chéile. Scéal atá ann faoi a bheidh ag choinnigh do stuaim i lár géarchéim agus a bheidh ionraic duit fhéin i measc cás cracáilte! Scríofa ag Fionn FoleyIs é Mark Ball a stiúir an scéalPerformed by Morgan CookeIs í Lara Gallagher a rinne an dearadh fuaime agus a chruthaigh an ceol Chruthaigh Tom Lane an ceol téamaSound Engineer- Ger KellettSuper Paua TeamCompany Director- Sian Ní MhuiríProducer- Heather RoseEngagement Director- Mark Ball@SuperPaua - Twitter/Facebook@Super.Paua - InstagramThis series was produced in collaboration with axis: Ballymun.

This week's Super Paua Story is Duisíonn Na hIoraí Rua, by Lewis Kenny."Far across the sea, in a wild and mystical forest called Iorainn, there lived a fuzzy bunch of red squirrels known as the Iora Rua. Now red squirrels love nothing more in the world than collecting acorns. Every autumn they would all go out together and gather them up in a big pile to store for winter. They would sing their squirrel songs, dance their acorn jigs, tell magical squirrel stories in their squeaky squirrel language called Bíog. These were exceptional times and the Iora Rua lived in peace and harmony. But nothing lasts forever."Directed by Mark BallPerformed by Graeme CoughlanSound Design and Composition by Lara GallagherTheme Tune by Tom Lane Super Paua TeamCompany Director- Sian Ní MhuiríProducer- Heather RoseEngagement Coordinator- Mark Ball@SuperPaua - Twitter/Facebook@Super.Paua - Instagram Made possible by support from the Arts Council Ireland.

Or cover all the boys’ toilet seats with cling film. Or plant worms in Neasa Toohill’s ham sandwich. She didn’t want to do these things but there was something powerful and irresistible inside that made her do them. Every time she tried to make a friend, her own mischievous urges got in the way.
