‘Literature is the soul of the language’ wrote Seosamh Mac Grianna, and in this book are twelve of the most lively and spirited short stories that have been written in the Irish Language.

The big writers are there - Liam Ó Flaithearta, Pádraic Ó Conaire, Pádraig Mac Piarais - as well as, perhaps, authors who are less well known - Peigí Rose, Fionntán de Brún, Annraoi Ó Liatháin.

It is the blend of the old and the new, of tradition and innovation, of talent, creativity and ability that will surprise readers of this collection that will inspire discussion, and perhaps also debate.

There are also comprehensive notes compiled by the editor for those wishing to sharpen their critical perspective.


ó Shaol Eile by hAlex Hijmans
Published by Cois Life
One hundred photographs. One hundred short essays. A faraway country in words and pictures, unknown … but in the right at the heart of the world market.

All eyes are on Brazil at the moment and will be for the near future: 2014 – the World Cup in Brazil, 2016 – the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Economically and politically Brazil is now more important than ever before on the international stage as the giant of South America.

Here’s your invitation to get to know Brazil – to really get to know it, to avoid the clichés. In this book Alex Hijmans, a foreign correspondent in the country since 2007, shows you insights into Brazil that aren’t found on the postcards. Indeed, the book covers many of the reasons for the recent social unrest in that country.

To be in with the chance to win these wonderful prizes all you need to do is forward your name and contact details to before midday, Friday, 18 April 2014.

We are grateful to all the publishers who made these prizes available to us.

Congratulations to Michael Ó hAnluain who won a selection of CDs in last week’s competition.
