Bhí Breandán Ó Madagáin ina Ollamh le Nua-Ghaeilge in Ollscoil na hÉireann, Gaillimh, ó 1975 -1997. Is mó an méid daoine a thit faoina thionchar i rith an ama sin, agus is saibhre dá bharr a n-eolas agus a dtuiscint ar an Ghaeilge, agus ar na traidisiúin a bhaineann léi, an amhránaíocht go háirithe. Tá an cnuasach aistí seo, óna iar chomhghleacaithe agus iar scoláirí, curtha le chéile in ómós don Ollamh Ó Madagáin.
Tá sé ina chomhartha aitheantais agus buíochas acu dó as a shaibhreas a roinnt leo, agus as an obair a rinne sé do léann na Gaeilge.
