Connemara Chronicles: Tales from Iorras Aithneach in eagar ag Seán Mac Giollarnáth

Aistrithe ag Liam Mac Con Iomaire agus Tim Robinson

Connemara Chronicles honours Sean MacGillarnath’s important legacy as a collector of folklore in Connemara. The stories presented here provide a compelling insight into the oral culture and traditions of Iorras Aithneach over the generations and give an insight into the lives of a group of first-class storytellers who gave the stories, memories and traditions their ancestors passed them on to the next generation.

The excellent translation work and meticulous study that Liam Mac Con Iomaire and Tim Robinson did on the stories in this book reveal the respect they had for Seán Mac Giollarnáth.

Translated into English for the first time, Connemara Chronicles: Tales from Iorras Aithneach preserves the craft of storytelling and pays tribute to the spark of inspiration they still inspire.
