Bás in Éirinn
Bás in Éirinn
May you die in Ireland
ISBN 978095508127 - Book of the Month, October 2011

The seven stories in this collection are by leading authors of the short story form in modern Irish Literature. They include key writers such as Liam Ó Flaithearta (better known as Liam O’Flaherty), Pádraic Ó Conaire, Séamus Ó Grianna, Seosamh Mac Grianna and Daithí Ó Muirí.

The stories are accompanied by parallel English translations which will help readers practise and improve their reading skills in Irish without having to constantly refer to a dictionary. The bilingual glossary at the end of the book will help with any non-standard Irish words or usages.

This bilingual reader is ideal for students of Irish as well as lovers of literature who wish to broaden their appreciation of the work of modern Irish language writers. The authors’ treatment of death, the theme of this collection, runs the gamut of emotions, sometimes bleak, sometimes matter-of-fact, and sometimes surprisingly comic.
