Máirtín Ó Cadhain by Breandán Ó hEithir | Davis Now Lectures

Journalist and author Ó hEithir catches the thrill and impact of Ó Cadhain's novel Cré na Cille. Set in a graveyard, its occupants, tormented by the slowness of time, are starved of gossip and action from life above ground. 'The Pleasures of Gaelic Literature' 1975/76 series featured writers on a writer in the Irish to which they were drawn.
