I’ll Tell You A Story About…

Johnny, Lily-May, Ruairi, and of course, Mammy and Daddy, go on a trip around our beautiful emerald isle in Tizzy, their old Volkswagen campervan. Before beginning their journey they meet an old man Finegas who’s fishing for “The Salmon of Knowledge”. He tells Johnny and Lily-May of an important mission; they need to make sure Irish legends have their stories heard.

If they complete the mission, there’s a huge reward waiting for them at their last stop on the Hill of Tara.
