An Old Woman’s Reflections: Life of a Blasket Island Storyteller (Peig)
Peig Sayers (Aistritheoir – Séamus Ennis)
3 in stock
Known affectionately as “the Queen of Gaelic Storytellers,” Peig Sayers here offers reminiscences of the daily events that made up her life (such as seal catching, collecting turf for roofs, preparing for a funeral wake) alongside the tragedies of drownings at sea, pilgrimages, and the news of the 1916 revolution in Dublin City. It is a unique record of an essential part of the oral Gaelic tradition.
