Irish Book Awards


Is é scéal Éadaoine scéal mór grá na Sean-Ghaeilge, a mhair ina bhlúirí, agus é fite in aon scéal amháin ag Diarmuid Johnson, ionas gur sean-eipic nua atá againn atá inchurtha le scéal Héilin na Trá, nó le scéal Tristan agus Íosóid.

The story of Éadaoin is our finest Old Irish love story, a story that survived in fragments. Diarmuid Johnson (winner of 2018 Irish Book Award in this category) has combined these fragments and knitted them into a whole to create a new old epic comparable to Helen of Troy or the story of Tristan and Isold.
