'A completely fresh take on the Irish language' * Irish Examiner
'Full of familiarity, of nostalgia, of humour and warmth. The author's voice really brings the book and the language to life - he somehow manages to remove all the boring aspects, and replaces them in with rich stories, with quirks, with colour and poignancy ... I'll be recommending it heartily' -- Sara Baume, author of Spill Simmer Falter Wither and A Line Made By Walking
