Seanchaí, an Irish Gaelic word meaning “Traditional Storyteller”.  These storytellers would travel around old Ireland, from place to place sharing tales of adventure and magic.  It was a different age, before television and radio became the mainstay media for disseminating information.  In those times a seanchaí would be invited into someone’s home, neighbors may also have been invited, and ancient tales passed down through the ages, were related.  
Storytelling is the art of portraying real or fictitious events in words, images, and sounds.”  WikiPedia
