An é sin an Pápa a fheicimid ag feitheamh le beirt bhuachaillí óga le linn a chamchuairt ar Éirinn in 1979? Nó an cuairteoirí ó phláinéad eile iad siúd atá ag caitheamh a gcuid laethanta saoire cois trá?

Tá pearsana sa chnuasach seo ag fás aníos is ag teacht in inmhe. Tá carachtair eile ag druidim le saol na díchuimhne agus speabhraídí na seanaoise ag breith orthu. Táimid de shíor dár bhfuadach as an saol seo, ach i scéal amháin is í an litir ‘i’ féin atá fuadaithe, le filleadh ina táinte sa chéad scéal eile.

Searbh í ar uairibh, ach ní mór dúinn rince go clabhsúr mar sin féin, i dtír mhilis seo na mbeo.

 

A new literary voice in Irish, this is Colm Ó Ceallacháin’s first collection of short stories.

Here we meet young and old, struggling with the tribulations of life. All is not as it seems. Is that the Pope we see waiting for two boys during his papal tour of Ireland in 1979? Could those seaside visitors be aliens from another planet?

The characters in this collection are growing up and coming of age, but they are slipping into oblivion too, through the forgetful fog of old age and delirium. We are continually being spirited from this life, but in one story it is the letter ‘i’ itself which is kidnapped, only to return with a vengeance.

Hard though it is at times, we must all carry on to the bitter end, in the sweet land of the living.
