Product Description
Irish language novel
hí Eilí in ann focail áirithe a dhéanamh amach anois; focail ghránna, mhaslacha a chloiseadh sí ó dhaoine sna bailte móra ó am go chéile; focail a bhain léise agus lena cineál, agus a chuir uafás uirthi. Chaithfeadh sí teitheadh ó na focail sin agus ó na daoine dorcha, dainséireacha sin a bhí á scairteadh léi … chaithfeadh sí rith.'

Ciníochas ceilte Éireann an lae inniu is cúlra don úrscéal seo le Colmán Ó Raghallaigh faoin gcairdeas a fhásann idir bheirt chailíní óga ó dhá chúlra éagsúla agus a thugann dúshlán na muintire lena mbaineann siad beirt.

'Now Eilí could make out some of the words; hateful, horrible words like those she had sometimes heard in the towns; words about her and her kind, which frightened her. She must get away from those words and from the dark and dangerous people shouting them at her… she must get away.'

A thoughtful and challenging examination of the hidden racism that lies under the surface of modern Ireland, as seen through the eyes of two young girls in a country town. An exciting, fast-paced and touching story."
