Books Ireland - November 2000
This is a book full of Ní Dhuibhne's sharp view of a world of trendy, arty capitalism; Saoirse's Dublin life is one of brand-names and approved viewpoints: "Tá an pictiúr sin (dhá spota dhearga ar an chúlra gorm) wonderful!" "Tá an lón wonderful!" ... Dúnmharú sa Daingean should find its readers among the lovers of Irish ... The narrative is a quirky combination of storytelling and a meditative examination of the interface between the old and the new Irelands, the artist and the arts, the secret millionaires beside the turf-fires, and the possibity of romance.
