Flaitheas: 232 pp; paperback; 978-1-913814-34-2
Criomhthann is a young man destined for the life of a warrior king. Due to a family tragedy, he must go in search of a different kind of life — and he will not undertake that new journey easily.
Pagans and Christians at each other’s throats
We are immersed in the uncertain life of the sixth century, a time when great changes were coming to people’s lives; a time when ambitious kings were at each other’s throats; a time when the old world of paganism was yielding to Christianity.
A glimpse of Colmcille the person
Flaitheas is a story that gives us a glimpse of the human Colmcille, a person who had his own weaknesses and had many obstacles to overcome.
The story of each one of us
Flaitheas tells the story of a person who is trying to make sense of changes in his life, the story of a person struggling with fate, the story of a person who makes mistakes but tries his best to do the right thing for himself and for the people around him. The story of each of us.
