Aneas

By Brenda Ní Shúilleabhán, Futa Fata

Reference: 9781906907785  

Shortlisted Leabhar na Bliana 2014 - Gradam Uí Shúilleabháin

Aneas, meaning from the south, is a celebration of the rich vein of wisdom that is

to be found in the Munster folklore tradition of the West Kerry Gaeltacht. It is also

a collaboration between two artists who live in Corca Dhuibhne – the writer and

documentary film maker Brenda Ní Shúilleabháin, a native of Ceann Trá, and Lanka

Haouche, a French photographic artist who has made West Kerry his home.

Combining traditional proverbs, incantations and verse from the living oral tradition

Ní Shuilleabháin’s translations and bilingual notes skilfully give context to words of

wisdom that have been shared for many a generation. Haouche’s feel for the

landscape and the people of his adopted home shine through in every image.
