Dispatches from a not so dead language.


For generations of Irish people the concept of an enjoyable and funny book about the Irish language was unimaginable - but then came Motherfoclóir.

Darach Ó Séaghdha, curator of the popular Twitter account @theirishfor, surprises us with his irreverent approach and his witty, learned and strange observations about the origins of words, their meaning and their connections. This is a drily humorous and deeply personal book that can be enjoyed by those who think Irish doesn't belong to them, or who say they can't remember a word of it, as well as lovers of any language.
