Diary of an Irish Countryman (Cín Lae Amhlaoibh)
Out of stock
Keeping a personal diary was not a practise among writers of Irish before O’Sullivan’s time and contemporary Irish scholars saw no future for the language and consequently wrote in English. Hence Humphrey O’Sullivan (Amhlaoibh Ó Súilleabháin) showed remarkable originality and courage in undertaking a diary in the Irish language. He lived a full life as a successful businessman, a fearless worker in the cause of freedom and social justice, a lover of nature, an antiquarian, collector of manuscripts and enjoyer of good food and drink.
