Description

Is fairsing an t-ábhar atá ar fáil i dtraidisiún béil na Gaeltachta. Is iad na hamhráin, b’fhéidir is mó atá i mbéal an phobail ar na saolta seo, ach tá réimse leathan véarsaíochta eile ann nach gcloistear go minic. Rogha den ábhar sin atá curtha i láthair in Aniar: dánta a chuirfidh ag smaoineamh tú, orthaí a leigheasfaidh tú, tairngreachtaí a chuirfidh síos ar an saol atá romhat. Tugann Tadhg Mac Dhonnagáin cur síos dátheangach ar chúlra gach píosa, chomh maith le leagan Béarla den bhunábhar. Cloistear aisteoirí Conamaracha ag aithrís na bpíosaí ar an dlúthdhiosca, le tionlacan.


The Irish oral tradition is a treasure trove of poetry, incantation, prophesy and proverb. Aniar, meaning ‘from the west’, presents a broad selection of this timeless material from the seemingly bottomless well of Conamara folklore. Each piece is further enhanced by Tadhg Mac Dhonnagáin’s translations and bilingual background notes, by Ceara Conway’s inventive photography, and by the performance of three of Conamara’s finest voices on the accompanying CD, with music by John Ryan. At times a windown on our pre-Christian past, at times a prescient description of 21st Century woes, Aniar is a truly engaging collection of voices and verse, from the edge of the world.
