Description

An Island Christmas – Nollaig Oileanach by celebrated Irish author Micheal O Conghaile is a nostalgic journey into childhood memories of Christmas on the now-deserted island of Connemara’s Inis Treabhair. The memoir goes beyond the holiday season, intertwining stories of Christmas joys with broader memories of friendships, and the vibrant personalities of the island community. The author recalls the unique traditions and customs of his island upbringing in the 1960s and 70s offering readers a captivating social history of the period. The book also gives an inspiring insight into the life of an enthusiastic artist and driving force behind the revival of Irish language writing and publishing, tracing O Conghaile’s journey from a young boy with a typewriter to the founder of the renowned publishing house, Clo Iar-Chonnacht. Translated from the Irish by Micheal O hAodha.
