...one of the gems that was published last year and on second reading it's still a gem...A really interesting story.. this translation is so clear and natural that you'd think it was written originally in Irish. Excellent book.

a translation that enriches the literary world of Gaeilge

The story is superb for any reader, a great story with a truly excellent translation. I thoroughly enjoyed this book - great book with a great translation.
