Turas Siar Go Cill Mór the book



A wonderful 100 page book complete with 3 CD's



This is a transcription of audio tapes made by Pádhraic (“Pap”) Ó Murchú from Cartúr, Clochar on the Mullet Peninsula in the Erris Gaeltacht in Co. Mayo from the sixties onwards. There is a wide range of topics covered here, such as farming and fishing practices, the social conventions of the people and much more, from the old days to recent times. There is a wealth of folklore on these tapes as well and descriptions of every aspect of the lives of ordinary people in a remote Gaeltacht area over many years and several generations.
