Conaire Mór

Diarmuid Johnson


104 pp; Paperback,  ISBN 978-1-911363-12-5.

Conaire Mór is a lively and highly-readable retelling of the Old-Irish epic Togail Bruidne Da Derga — a story that begins with the crowning of Conaire and ends with his brutal slaying on the banks of the Dodder. All the wonders of ancient literature are found in this book, from Conaire’s  warrior feats to his ascension to the throne and to the prophesy of doom that cannot be evaded. This is a story that hasn’t been told in a thousand years, but now, Conaire Mór reigns again. The author, Diarmuid Johnson, is a poet.

"A wonderful doorway into the world  of the ancient Gaelic saga." Cathal Póirtéir, Books Ireland.
