In this superb presentation of Seán Mac Mathúna’s short stories, Niall Tóibín brings a master’s touch to the characters and voices in stories as diverse as ‘Leaca an Tí Mhóir’ and ‘Ding’. This is a rare production, indeed, and Tóibín is brilliant in his delivery of the stories to CD, embodying the humour, humanity, and dark devilment of classic storytelling. The story ‘Gadaithe’ alone, a heartbreaking homage to the art of storytelling in Irish, is a profound and deeply-moving masterpiece brought to life here by Niall Tóibín as never before. These stories, which are from Cois Life’s published collection Úlla, must be heard. The stories included in this boxset are:
- ‘An Seamlas’
- ‘Leaca an Tí Mhóir’
- ‘Tuatha Dé Danann’
- ‘Aos Ifrinn’
- ‘Sodar Breá Bog go Cluain Uí Eachaigh’
- ‘Na Quizmháistrí’
