Description

Seo scéal Antaine Uí Reachtabhra, mac fíodóra a chaill radharc na súl agus é ina

pháiste, fidléir a chaith a shaol ag fánaíocht thart ar chontae na Gaillimhe, file a labhair amach, gan fuacht gan faitíos, ar son pobail a bhí brúite bascaithe.

The first cradle to grave biography of Antaine Ó Raiftearaí, or Raiftearaí an File has he is widely known,

written for a general readership. A radical voice in 19th century Ireland, the blind,

illiterate poet and songwriter Raiftearaí left behind a body of verse that offers an invaluable insight into the life of the destitute

Irish-speaking population of pre-famine Connacht. Raiftearaí fearlessly espoused revolt against the injustice of the landlord system.

He praised beautiful women, he mercilessly lampooned anyone who crossed him or questioned his role as the voice of his community.
