Tá rian na drámaíochta ar phlota cliste an leabhair seo, rud a mbeifeá ag súil leis ó fhear a bhfuil cáil go forleathan air mar aisteoir i sobaldráma TG4, Ros na Rún. Is thar thrí ghlúin a thiteann an scéal eachtrach seo amach, a bhfuil an grá, an naimhdeas, an feall agus an dúnmhárú fite fuaite ann. Tá oiliúint le fáil sa leabhar chomh maith ar stair shóisialta Chonamara - ar lámh láidir na hEaglaise, ar an scoilt idir an uasaicme le Béarla agus gnáthmhuintir na Gaeltachta, agus ar bhád bán na himirce.

Bronnadh Gradam Litríochta Chló Iar-Chonnachta, i gcomhar le hÚdarás na Gaeltachta, ar Lámh Láidir, agus bronnadh duais Oireachtais sa chomórtas Úrscéal don Phobal 2002 ar an saothar seo chomh maith.

This novel has a dramatic plot that spans 3 generations. It tells a story that is sometimes tragic, sometimes funny, and features love, friendship, betrayal and murder. As well as being entertaining, the book is a lesson in the social history of Connemara. It explores the daunting authority of the Church, the chasm that divided the English-speaking elite from the Irish-speaking working-class and the painful reality of emigration.

Lámh Láidir was awarded the Cló Iar-Chonnachta Literary Prize, in conjunction with Údarás na Gaeltachta. It was also awarded the top prize in the Oireachtas Literary competition 2002.
