New book launched

Téanam go Min Aird (Leabhar & CD); Scéal na Gaelainne i ndúthaigh Líse Ní Shúilleabháin (1923-2009) ar an CD agus Tuairisc Bheathaisnéiseach óna peann. Cóirithe agus curtha in eagar ag Roibeard Ó Cathasaigh.

Lís Ní Shúilleabháin was a storyteller and a raconteur. She spent most of her adult life teaching in Dublin but returned to her native Lios Póil when she retired. She had an intense interest in the local history of her parish and had marvelous recall. The Irish Language was a passion and she was hopeful it would continue to be the language of her people. The book will enhance the current debate about Irish language planning in the Gaeltacht areas and encourage Irish-speaking communities.
Roibeard Ó Cathasaigh got to know Lís in the seventies when they were both teaching in the coláiste samhraidh in Lios Póil. She agreed to being recorded and wrote to Roibeard for a period afterwards. The results of these endeavors are in this book Téanam go Min Aird. People from Corca Dhuibhne, Irish Language learners and scholars and local historians will be interested in this pioneering publication.
