Dónall Dána / Horrid Henry’s series has been translated into easy-to-read Irish by a team of translators; Caitlín Ní Chualáin, Máirín Ní Ghadhra, Gormfhlaith Ní Thuairisg and Marion Ní Shúilleabháin.
There are four stories in the collection Teach na dTaibhsí one of the books in the series Horrid Henry : Dónall Dána. Marion Ní Shúilleabháin translated Teach na dTaibhsí to Irish.
Dónall Dána is a proper little devil. He is a boy who loves to play tricks. He throws food around, snatches things, pushes, squeezes and pinches.
In these stories, Dónall Dána is arguing with Learaí gan Locht, and they can’t agree on which television show to watch. In another story, Dónall Dána finds himself on TV, cheats to win a reading competition and stays in the haunted house.
