Deoraíocht – Úrscéal ar an aimsir seo atá i láthair

Pádraic Ó Conaire is said to be the father of contemporary writing in Irish. Deoraiocht, published for the first time in 1915, was the first major contemporary novel in Irish and was a benchmark for many of the writers who followed Ó Conaire in the twentieth century. Set in London at the beginning of the twentieth century, it is a powerful story told in a lively, compelling way. The characters are presented in vivid and energetic detail and the novel tells the story of the people who were emigrants in London and gives an insight into the kind of lives they led.

Since the novel Deoraiocht went out of print in the 1920s the original edition has not been available to readers. A heavily-censored edition was published after Ó Conaire’s death. For the first time in a century, Deoraiocht is available uncensored in this new edition.
