Friday / Dé hAoine
‘Fascinating’ Sunday Tribune ‘Entertaining and captivating’ Ireland Magazine Dark Day on the Blaskets is a portrait of a young woman and her times. It is also an engrossing description of a place at a turning point in its cultural history, a place celebrated in the remarkable classics of the ‘Blasket Library’. Mícheál Ó Dubhshláine had an intimate knowledge and love of the culture and language of West Kerry, and in Dark Day on the Blaskets he has woven a compelling story around a tragic incident in the life of the Blaskets. Oibríonn Máire Ó Dhálaigh le Ionad an Blascaoid i Dhun Chaoin ag coimeád an scéal a bhaineann le pobal uathúil na Blascaoid beo. Ba de mhuintir Dálaigh ó Inisvickillane í.
The book is written in English; the talk is as Gaeilge.
