Súil Siar – A Collection of Essays by Barra Ó Donnabháin – Dual Language (Irish and English)
Barra Ó Donnabháin wrote almost 300 essays in Irish while living in New York. This is a collection of 32 of those essays in the original Irish, edited and translated to English by Hilary Sweeney and Eileen Zurell. The collection is being published by Daltaí na Gaeilge in memory of Barra and his contribution to the Irish Language movement in North America.
The volume indicates the breadth of Barra’s research in politics, social studies, literature and history and will be useful to those with similar interests and particularly those who wish to progress in their Irish language studies. The articles showcase Barra’s humor, insight and great love for his native Ireland and for his adopted home in the the United States. Because it is a dual language book (in Irish and English) it will be especially useful for classroom work as well as for students learning on their own.
