Mé Suibhne; 160 pp; hardback; 978-1-913814-08-3

A retelling of the old Irish tale Buile Shuibhne. Mé Suibhne is a tale about mental illness, about confrontation with the Church, about the tragedy of man. Here you will find the seven univeral themes: love, loneliness, sorrow, joy, contrition, forgiveness, and redemption.

A sensitive depiction of mental illness

In this important text from the European literary canon, one of Ireland’s greatest works, we find the first sensitive depiction of the insane and on the effect of mental illness on a person’s mind and life.

“Scéal ar an gcumhacht, ar an gcreidimh; an tráma inste go paiteanta … téacs atá anseo don gcluas.” — Aonghus Ó hAlmhain, Smaointe Fánacha Aonghusa

What the critics said about An Tromdhámh:
“Athchóiriú géarchúiseach faoi anáil renovatio na hard-mheánaoise féin é An Tromdhámh, feictear dom, agus cé gur ríléir an dílseacht don traidisiún agus an grinneas friotail sa gcóiriú teanga, tá glór cruthaitheach údair le haithint freisin agus is maith ann dó.” – Dónall Ó Braonáin, Comhar.
