Tuatha De Danann: Seilbh Inse Fodla

by Diarmuid Johnson


Winner of the Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards The Love Leabhar Gaeilge Irish Language Book of the Year Book of the Year Award for 2018.

Is le misneach mór, le héirim aigne, agus le feabhas a gcuid draíochta a bhain Tuatha Dé Danann seilbh na hÉireann de na Fir Bolg fadó, agus is le dícheall agus le díograis na dtréanfhear agus na ndeithe a shéan siad ceannas an oileáin ar na Fomhóraigh lá ab fhaide anonn.
Athinsint bhreá bhríomhar ata´ sa leabhar seo ar theacht Thuatha Dé Danann, scéal a bhaineann le dúchas na nGael agus le flaitheas na hÉireann.

Scéal flaithiúnais, scéal dúchais, scéal ársa agus scéal nua — sin é atá i scéal na n-eachtraí faoi mar atá inseacht agus aithris orthu sa leabhar beag eipiciúil seo. Cé mar a baineadh an ghéag de Nuadha, cérbh é Lugh Lámhfhada, cén tairngreacht do Bhalar na Súile Nimhe, agus cén bhandáil a bhí ag an Daghda cois Éirne?

Is as na seanleabhair léinn a bhain an t-údar freagraí na gceisteanna seo, ceisteanna faoi ghnéithe den réamhstair atá faoi bhrat ceo leis na céadta bliain. Teacht agus imeacht na dTuatha Dé Danann is ábhar agus is téama don leabhar. Sin, agus an chéad lá ar leag clanna Gael cois ar chladaí Inse Fódla.

Tuatha Dé Danann is a lively and highly-readable retelling of the Old-Irish epic Cath Maighe Tuiredh — or the Battle of Moytura — an account of the invasion and conquest of Ireland by the Tuatha Dé Danann by the popularly acclaimed prize-winning author of Conaire Mór. All the wonders of ancient literature are found in this book, from Lugh Lámhfhada’s warrior feats to his vanquishing of the Fomorian invaders. This is a story that concerns with the ‘Matter of Ireland’, essential reading for all who cherish the past.
