An Bodach An Unlikely Hero

Posted by Nuala Cassidy on

The third in the series of beautiful and highly collectible hand-made concertina books is a lively rendering i nGaeilge agus Béarla of the folk tale An Bodach by local journalist, Seán Mac an tSíthigh, bunaithe ar an mbéaloideas áitiúil. Bob Ó Cathail’s striking illustrations capture perfectly the humour in this tale of an unlikely local hero who beats Ireland’s fastest runner in a race from the east coast to the west.

All at Ponc Press are to be congratulated on a beautiful work of art.

Helen Ní Shé  and Sean Mac an tShítigh launched the new book last Friday as part of the Feile na Bealtaine festival. Great fun was had by all, the shop was packed to the rafters. This is a limited edition, so get it while you can !
