Translation into English of Eoghan Ó Tuairisc’s ‘An Lomnochtán’. Translated by Micheál Ó hAodha, published by Bullaun Press.
Charlotteen was crying that she couldn’t make the pee-music. He searched the ditch and found an old enamel basin, it was eaten by rust, amongst the rubbish in the nettles, he sat down beside her and taught her how to make pee-music on the basin until Effie, the baby, started going red in the face and it wasn’t long before she was drownded wet in the pram, he let her out on the ground, he took off her nappy, stretched it out on the roots of the tree to dry.
