Mícheál Breathnach was a writer from Cois Fharraige in Connemara who dies in 1908 at the young age of twenty seven. To commemorate his life and his work his friends put together a collection of his writing which was then published in 1913. This is a reprint of that work, the only reprint in almost one hundred years. It includes travel writing, journalism, political and literary commentary, memoir, composition and poetry, as well as his life story. A fitting tribute to one of the great pioneers of modern Irish writing.
