Description

Acair, 2015. 509 pages. Paperback.

In this first ever anthology of Gaelic verse from the First World War, the voices of the soldiers and sailors who fought the war and the voices of the mothers, sisters, and wives who waited for them are given prominence.

From spirited patriotic verse composed at the beginning of the war to the final tragedy of New Year's Day 1919 and the loss of over 200 returning servicemen on the Iolaire, this is a poignant view of the war as experienced by Gaelic speakers.

The poems are in Gaelic with English translation, with notes on authors and on key personalities and events mentioned in the poems.
