A Story of Ancient Authenticity that has a Central Drive and Pace
“Seoid na Bliana … Is fada ó bhain mé an oiread pléisiúir as aon phrós Gaeilge a scríobhadh le ceathracha bliain. Rithim, ceol agus comhfhuaim fite le simplíocht, nádúr agus deilbh na Gaeilge ina gcúlra sciamhach ag scéal lán eachtraí, gliceas, dea-chaint, daonnacht agus draíocht.” Máire Ní Fhinneadha, tuairisc.ie
