In this superb presentation of Seán Mac Mathúna’s short stories, Niall Tóibín brings a master’s touch to the characters and voices in stories as diverse as Leaca an Tí Mhóir and Ding. This is a rare production, indeed, and Tóibín is brilliant in his delivery of the stories to CD, embodying the humour, humanity, and dark devilment of classic storytelling. The story Gadaithe alone, a heartbreaking homage to the art of storytelling in Irish, is a profound and deeply-moving masterpiece brought to life here by Niall Tóibín as never before. These stories, which are from Cois Life’s published collection Úlla, must be heard.
