This book traces the origins of Feis nGleann in that ‘crease of time’ between Parnell and the 1916 Rising. In a series of scholarly chapters, experts profile the historic founders of the Feis and record the history of Irish in the district. There are special sections on the traditional arts and crafts fostered by the Feis, the once famous Glens toy-making industry, the role of hurling and the rich literary legacy of the Feiseanna.
The book is lavishly illustrated with unique comtemporary photographs. The result is an attractive and readable volume which will appeal to all those interested in the history and culture of the Glens and the fortunes of the Irish Language in the north of Ireland.
