Cré na cille : a narrative in ten interludes /
Máirtín Ó Cadhain ; translated by Liam Mac Con Iomaire and Tim Robinson.
|Main Creator:||Ó Cadhain, Máirtín|
In an Irish graveyard, the corpses are distracted by local jealousies and petty disputes assuming global importance. Their banter is full of news of above-ground happenings, received from the recently arrived. As we listen in on the gossip, rumors, backbiting, complaining, and obsessing of the local community, we learn that in the afterlife the same old life goes on beneath the sod.
