#25 | Searc Week

“An sgéal fada ní hé is fearr” – the longest tale is not the best.

As Valentine’s Day approaches, the Motherfoclóir gang turn their thoughts to the wealth of love poetry written in the Irish language. Darach, Éimear and Peadar take turns reading poems (and their English translations) from “Filíocht Ghrá Na Gaeilge”, which covers a thousand years of Irish love poetry. It covers the whole spectrum of the human heart.

While the gang don’t swear, there are adult themes in the episode.

You can buy the poetry collection referenced this week at: www.cnagsiopa.com or www.coislife.ie
