An Old Woman's Reflections
All Books are second hand
Peig Sayers, 'the Queen of Gaelic story-tellers', spent the greater part of her long life on the Great Blasket Island. She was a natural orator, and students and scholars of the Irish language came from far and wide to visit her. In this book, as an old lady, she muses and reflects on the days of her youth, recounting tales which evoke characters and an era now dead, and capture the superstitions and hard life of her beloved island.
