We have made great progress in the Storytelling side of things. We now know what the preferences of the mass audiences have. They seem to revolve around old Irish stories or tales which they probably would have listened to around a turf fire when they were younger. This is going down very well with rapturous applause at the end. This is even from people who normally would not of had much of a response. So we are going to develop this over time as initially it seems to evoke past memories. This seems to work much better for some people anyway than box standard reminiscence. But having said this reminiscence does have its place. At the end the residents will start up a discussion about what they have been listening to rather than myself starting up the conversation.
