Winner of Gradam Uí Shúilleabháin, Book of the Year 2019
An Tromdhámh by Feargal Ó Béarra is a retelling of a 14th century satirical tale titled Tromdhámh Guaire. Feargal Ó Béarra's contemporary edition brings this entertaining tale to modern readers. The story recounts the prolonged visit of the 'burdernsome band of bards' to King Guaire and the comic consequences of that visit and the 'finding' of the long-lost tale 'Táin Bó Cuailgne'. This is a story to savour and to delight in.
