Description

Ó mhórchorpas na Rúraíochta a thagann scéalta an leabhair ealaíonta seo. Insíonn Laoch na Laochra scéal Chúchulainn, ó choimpeart go bás. San athinsint dhílis seo i gcanúint Uladh, tá réamhscéalta na Tána agus Táin Bó Cuailgne í féin. Tá an téacs anchumhachtach agus soléite. Sa 7ú céad a scríobh manaigh an béaloideas ársa seo ar phár den chéad uair. Bhí féith na cumadóireachta iontu siúd a bhreac síos na scéalta agus eolas maith acu ar an cheantar inar tharla na heachtraí eipiciúla seo. Dála na manach léannta sin, tá saineolas ar an cheantar seo, seanUlaidh go príomha, ag údar Laoch na Laochra, Réamonn Ó Ciaráin, agus ag an ealaíontóir, Dara Vallely, ós den cheantar sin iad ar aon. Is siombail chumhachtach é Cúchulainn den chrógacht, den dílseacht, d’ealaíontacht na troda, den áilleacht agus d’éirim intinne. Tá spiorad Chúchulainn i ndiaidh laochra, réabhlóidithe, lucht éigse, lucht spóirt agus ceannairí a spreagadh le breis agus míle bliain in Éirinn.

The stories in this art-book are all from the ancient Ulster Cycle and they tell the story of Cúchulainn from conception to death. This faithful retelling is made up of the scene-setting stories of the Cattle Raid of Cooley known as ‘réamhscéalta’ and the greatest Irish mythological epic of them all, The Táin Bó Cuailgne. The writing is powerful and easily read. These ancient stories were first written down in the 7th century by learned and creative Irish monks who had intimate knowledge of the region they described. Like those monks the author, Réamonn Ó Ciaráin and the artist, Dara Vallely have a detailed knowledge of the territory of old Ulster as they are both native to the area. Cúchulainn is a powerful symbol of bravery, loyalty, martial prowess, beauty and intellect. The spirit of Cúchulainn has inspired revolutionaries, artists, sports men and women and leaders for more than a thousand years.
